Gained weight, oh no!!!



Recommended Posts

So, I thought "I got this"... Smooth sailing, 1-2 pounds a week?, no problem... until this week... and it's scaring the living daylight out of me. I gained 4 pounds over the weekend. I still do my usual everyday walking, plus I re-joined the gym so that's not the problem. It's the snacking late at night... Also, my coworker is having a bday this week, and I rolled some "lumpia" (filipino eggrolls) and I have tons in my freezer, ready to just get deep fried....and I'm about to throw them all soon.

I'm going to a 5 day cruise on the 4th of July too...

Please, I need some encouragement, some strong words, prayers, uplifting quotes...anything.

Thanks...

Sometimes those little bumps are Water weight and reaction to salty Snacks we've had and they'll go down in a couple of days. But you know what to do, keep track of what you're eating, stop the snacking, stick to Protein. It'll be easier on your cruise because you can stick to three meals a day with no snacking in between. You've got this! You can do this!

I had a 2 pound gain this morning. I know I am still consuming very few calories and so it is not from overeating. As GradyCat says, it could be Water weight (higher salt foods) or just normal fluctuations that happen with our bodies. That said, I could do better to focus on my Protein, fibre, and water, as recommended by my program and so that is what I am going to do. Hoping to see the scale down again very soon.

Just go back to the basics. Good luck!

A weight fluctuation of four pounds is workable. Stay calm and press on. Our minds can see gains and panic. Know that this can be Water weight or a slight fluctuation. Acknowledge it. Work on any old behaviors/night snacking. Keep health low calorie Snacks on hand. Much of weight loss is the mental battles. Surgery does not take away our old behaviors. It’s the work we put in.

Keep working your plan and congrats on your trip.

Perhaps it may help to Gift away the bday food (someone may wamt it), set a meal schedule/plan & stick to it until vacay, have fun on your cruise and get back to business when you return.

Good luck ❤

You know the basics... but we all need that kick in the pants every once in a while.

Track everything you put in your mouth. Drink your Water. Walk. Practice mindfulness... not just with food, but with your thoughts, with your activity, with your relationships.

Good on you for catching the bump in the road early and getting on top of it!

Ive stalled plenty of times but never gained yet. I am so scared of that! I think the answer is always back to basics. Go back to what you know works and you cant go wrong

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
