I finally got into the 260's and was so thrilled. Weighing in at 268 in the morning. Well this week it has crept back up slowly to 272 in the morning. I can't understand it - I haven't done anything differently except one small "cheat" from my plan a few nights ago. I had ONE cookie. Hardly a cheat and my plan allows for one cheat meal a week. This has been working fine.
What is going on?
I did eat a high salt snack the other day (prosciutto and cheese) - calorie/nutrition wise it was okay - but perhaps I am retaining lots of water? Its also the week AFTEr my period, so its not that.
I am just scared that all my hard work is going to go to ****. I don't want the scale to keep creeping back - I want it to go back down. It doesn't need to go quickly - I'm okay with slow. I'm trying to make thi a lifestyle change so I don't want to have to unnecessarily starve myself or be drastic to get it to go down. But this going up thing is scaring me!
