Red face I am going to just put it out there...

I'm struggling. A lot.

I struggled through two months at 213. Over Christmas I ate what I wanted in reasonable portions and PILED on the sodium weight. When I got home on the 28th I was 229!!! By New years even though I was 219... and then New years eve happened. And I was GREAT with my food (though it was ALL salty) but I drank. A LOT. And... back up to 225.4. This morning? 221.4.

So I know that MOST of this is sodium. And that's why I have not changed my ticker. And other than New years eve I've been totally on plan so I KNOW I'm not going over my calories at all.

But every time I get back down, I do the salt thing and SHOOT back up.

It's irritating.

So. This is my kick in the butt post. To STOP DOING THAT to myself. To get this water weight OFF and get back to losing weight!

Onederland is well within my reach... I gotta just KICK IT and get there.

Step away from the salt, girl! Salt weight is the pits. It makes you feel just as bad as fat weight even though you haven't fallen off the food wagon. Hang in there, CFMama!

I love the stuff, but it doesn't love me or my scale.

Hang in there. Without the salt and other extras, your weight will go back down and you'll be in Onederland in no time!

I feel ya, my sister made cookies and ihave a major sweet tooth. my remedy, eat the dinner i planned and if i still need something sweet, I plan on having a 1/2 cup of corn. You just have to remind yourself of why you when on a diet in the first place, or try asking some maintainers that like the salties, what they do to moderate themselves.

but thats just my two cents...

Oh my God ! You have lost so much weight..I would be thrilled to do half as well as you have. A little self indulgence is normal during the holidays nothing to sweat too much...obviously you know what you need to do next.

Water, water, water! Wash that salt right of you!

Good for you for being on plan with the food!! That's saying something after holidays!

I am sorry to hear that you are struggling.

This time after the holidays can be tough. Remember Robin's 3 perfect days on plan. I am confident that you can do this!

It sucks to know that you've done the right thing with calories/ eating, but the scale doesn't budge (because of water retention from sodium and other things). You just gotta hang in there! The weight will come back down. You will see 213 again very soon!

Keep it all in perspective. Your journey has been a long one with (I assume) many bumps along the way. This is just another one. The holidays are over, you can get back into your routines that you know work for you. Dust yourself off, hold your head high and say, "Salt, you are no match for me! I am a strong woman that can overpower you!" Drink your water and get back in the groove and I bet you'll find it comes off pretty quickly. Hang in there!

I agree with what everyone above said.....but I also think you should just weigh once a week. As women, our weight can fluctuate from day to day with hormones and salt intake, etc. Hang in there! You have come a long way!

Is it that Onederland is that scary? I'm only asking because I have a hunch that it will be for me. Exciting and wonderful, sure, but unchartered territory, at least for so long that I don't even remember what it was like to have a weight starting with a 1.

But given how far you've come and what an amazing journey you've had so far, I'm sure you'll take this leap too, even if it's a little bit more of a bumpy ride than you planned on.

You're back on the right track! Now that the evil holidays are done, you'll be back to where you were in no time!

Ummmmm...... who DIDN'T struggle this holiday? We all want to succeed and do well, but sometimes we gorge. It's OK. My DH usually weighs in at 223 and after the holidays came in at 234. I gained 5 pounds just from the last three weeks of 2009. Just breathe. You know where the gain is coming from; you can make small changes each day and you know you'll be OK - just believe!
