I know how frustrating that can be. If your clothes are fitting better, try not to worry too much about the scales. If your exercising daily, and depending on the type of exercise you are doing, you will be converting fat into muscle which weighs more. Only weighing yourself once a week (and at the same time with the same amount of clothes on, or not, as you may prefer, LOL) will help too as it's hard not to obsess over daily fluctuations. Taking body measurements can also be a useful tool as you can often see changes happening in your measurements without any acknowledgment from your scales. If you are following WW, make sure you are eating all of your points each day without skipping meals, especially if you are exercising, as if you don't your body goes into starvation mode and losing weight become very difficult. HTH - hang in there - sounds like you are doing great.

weight flucuations are a part of life unfortunately some times I think I've done really gd and lost alot of weight quick and then a couple of days later life will bite me on the *** and the scales will say ive put some of it on<I weighjt myself everyday too>.
silverfern is rite muscle is heavier than fat, that could be your problem or so can many other things, like if u due on, so much water retention.
stress, I find that I can eat the least possible and still not lose or even gain if my mood isnt gd.
When you weight yourself do it at the same time each week in the same clothes if poss.
Like in the morning, in ur niteshirt after u visit the bathroom. thats if u dont already.
make sure u start off the day rite by eating breatfast, like raisin bran or special k or porridge(with sweetener) w/ semi skimmed milk, and dont eat 2-3 hrs before you sleep.

The one thing that I find very helpful is to journal every little thing that I put in my mouth, from black coffee to the small food sample at Costco. That is my reality check. I can go along and eat proper meals, drink my water and do whatever exercise doesn't hurt my arthritis. But it is the tasting at meal prep time, the sampling in stores that do me in point-wise. So I religiously write everything down. I know that for me, eating after 8 p.m. is a no-no. I see that on the scales in the morning. Also, I only weigh myself first thing in the morning because body weight fluctuates through the day. We are all in this together and need the encouragement and support.

Angry down, up and hope to go down

I replied on the weigh in board, I was down two now up one all within 4 days and I have not cheated. I have eaten all my points half of flex, drinking all the water. Well something is better than nothing. If I'm impatient the weight wins, if I'm patient and faithful I'll win. So here's to next week and anoher week OP.

i've grown to hate the scale. i started at 204, got down to 197, went back to 200. yesterday i weighed myself and was 194 and today i'm 197. but through it all i've lost 2 inches in my hips and 2 inches in my waist. so i take the measurements into consideration before i let the scale bother me. keep up the good work, and don't worry too much about the scale

My leader told us the appropriate amount of weight you loose is exactly a week from your first weigh in or your last.Weighing yourself daily will make you frustrated because weight changes after you eat,etc.When you weigh in on your wekly weigh in,thats the only number i would count.

Default Thank You Everyone

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much for all your encouragment.
I was panicking but the scale is just crazy. Last week I weighed in 10lbs less from 1/6/06. I weighed in on Friday at 247. Sunday at 253.6. I knew taht was wrong- there was no way I gained. That is when I posted- I am so confused- Then I exercised and ate breakfast. One hr later. I weighed and was 250. Today I was 248. My clothes are bigger and I feel my muscles get tighter. SO I wm not going to weigh myself until next week. I know I am doing everything right and will not GIVE UP!!! Thank you so muc for all your help!!!!

i agree, weighing yourself once a week is the best way to go. otherwise you'll just drive yourself crazy with gains and losses and water gain and water loss, etc...

keep eating right and exercising. That's great that your clothes are feeling looser.

Girl, weigh yourself once a week if that. Sometimes i go two. I used to do it everday and i would get disappointed if i gained a pound or two and then stop dieting. I kinda think the scale is your enemy when you first start cause you want to drop the weight immediately after awhile you dont care if it takes a little longer to drop it.
