Default Everything Undone

I lost five pounds this month, and this weekend I gained it all back. I had a really emotional time concerning one of my kids. It's like I didn't care anymore. I ate whatever, whenever. I have to start all over.

It is incredibly unlikely that you gained 5lbs of fat - a great deal of that is water retention. Drink lots of water, get right back on plan, and (most importantly) forgive yourself!

There is no way u can gain 5 lbs over a weekend...
just keep in mind tht u cannot be into weight loss mode 365 days ayear, u r bound to hv weak days. Just don't belittle urself for those bad days. tomorrow is a new day. Get going and be strong for urself and ur kids...

Hugs! Emotional eating during tough times ... it happens to us all. When I feel the urge to soothe through food I try to find comfort in staying on plan, going to the gym or trying a new bubble bath. I've even gotten into essential oils ... I didn't really understand why until I realized that the rich scents were replacing my urge for rich food.

And I agree with everyone else that most of your gain is due to salt and/or dehydration. I didn't realize how bad salt was until, time and again, I would see a multi-pound increase after a salty meal, an increase that would always take two days to vanish.

More recently, I also noticed that my weight loss stalls really bad if I don't drink enough water so now I make sure I drink as much as I can stand. Water just keeps everything moving and drinking tons of it fills you up so you won't want to eat as much. I like to add lemon, mint, or cucumber to make it seem more special.

Forgive yourself, tough times are hard on us all. You can beat this!!!!
