I’m still plugging along!  It gets a little frustrating when it seems like I lose the same couple of pounds over & over & over again.  But that is how weightloss works…it isn’t just a straight line downward no matter how much we want it to be.  Instead it looks something like this (I’m giving you a lot of numbers to make a point):

10/01  161.4   (-0.2)
10/02  161.8  (+0.4)
10/03  162.8  (+1.0)
10/04  163.0  (+0.2)
10/05  165.4  (+2.4)
10/06  163.6  (-1.8)
10/07  164.0  (+0.4)
10/08  162.8  (-1.2)
10/10  163.8  (+1.0)
10/11  161.8  (-2.0)
10/12  161.4  (-0.4)
10/13  164.2  (+2.8)
10/14  162.0  (-2.2)
10/15  161.0  (-1.0)
10/16  162.2  (+1.2)
10/17  160.8  (-1.4)
10/18  162.2  (+1.4)
10/19  160.6  (-1.6)
10/20 159.8  (-0.8)

That’s right, you read that correctly, I hit the 150’s this morning!  Will I stay there?  Probably not.  As you can see, there is no straight line here, it’s up, down, up, up, down, down, etc.  That’s why, if you are going to weigh yourself everyday like I do, you need to just write it down and forget about it.  You can’t freak out or stress about the gains or you will end up causing more problems for yourself like losing motivation or producing cortisol (look it up on the internet).

So, even though I seem to lose the same pounds over & over again, the overall trend is still downward.  And I am happy with that!  Hope your trend is downward too!!!
