Good morning Turtles,
Oh Princess, that's disheartening. I'm thinking maybe hormones plus heat did this. I had a similar experience and was so close to throwing in the towel and then this morning I finally dropped some weight.
I wish I were a doctor so I could say "this and this" but I can send you
: to keep on doing the zumba and OP eating and that gain which is not really a gain will drop off.
I feel really good today and know it's worth it for me to keep on keepin' on.
My newest trick (I keep on tricking myself to get to goal) is to use the Jenny Craig plan of 3 frozen meals/day, a yummy low calorie snack, 2 fruits, 2 milks. I am not using the JC foods right now, but hunting out bargains in the frozen aisles at supermarkets to find foods that are good. I "beef up" the portions by adding a salad at lunch and some veggies at dinner. I need to knock off the 9# I put on recently, stop feeling sorry for myself, and keep at it!
Enuff about me. Betsybug, how are you doing?:
Good luck to all of us. I'm going to start a new thread. See you all at #279 Bale of Turtles Doing Their Best!
