Emotional rollercoaster

Sunday, January 10, 2016

The ups and downs with my weight is emotionally draining. Some days i love the scale, other days i want to throw it in the garbage. I have been weighing first thing in the am, always at the same time. Numbers are all over the place. I even recaliberated my scale.

    emoticon Normal body weight fluctuates a lot. Remember that a liter of water weighs 2.2 pounds; salt can cause you to retain that amount and more over a few days.

    You'll learn what your normal fluctuations are and stick to your path because you KNOW you are on a downward path that just happens to have ups and downs. But the downs will outweigh the ups.

    Also, it helps to have some non-scale goals to feel good about. Steps per day, within your calorie range, etc.

    Our body weight can fluctuate related to our digestion, food consumed and exercise, and life stress. I weigh in one day a week. My coach to today reminded me that slow and steady loses the weight. Hang in there.

    dont let the scale get you down. I try to only weigh myself every 3-4 days. It's hard at first but once you can go a day or two without weighing you can start concentrating on other things
