Lost Memory Card

...and MAJOR frustration!!!! I know I weigh a ton, I know the weight isn’t going to come off overnight, but can I get a little loss? At this point, even a .2 loss would make me insanely happy! I have been working out faithfully for almost 2 weeks now and I have GAINED 2lbs!!! What the?!?! I don’t get it, I really don’t. If you have any tips or advice, please, please help me!!! 

And then I haven’t been able to take a single picture because my memory card was being held hostage by the toddler. See this face? Underneath his cuteness is evil! I found it this morning in the bottom of his car bucket…sneaky little booger!!! 

Have a great day 🙂

  1. You just need to stick with it. Remember that the scale measures 1 blip in time of an entire week. There are so many variables. You could be retaining water with doing more workouts. As you do more exercise, your body will hold on to water for repair of the muscles. Just give it time. If you are doing what you should, then be patient and the scale will follow. The scale does not care whether you were good all week or you ate a high-sodium meal last night or if you are stepping on after a week long cruise. It just gives that number for that moment.

  2. I HATE to say this and you can theorize in any way you'd like, but, at the end of the week, weight loss is caused by using more calories that you consume (and it takes a deficit of 3,500 calories/wk in order to lose one pound). Now, while any one week could be influenced by water retention or a particularly dense meal the night before weighing in, over time, weight is lost by, on average, consuming less than is burned.I'm a WW and I can tell you it was SLOW going for me for the first few months, -.4 lbs/wk, (because, my daily points = about 1,450 calories which, at the end of the day, was too high for my oh-so-slow metabolism). I cut it to closer to 1,200 (on average) calories, kept my work outs the same, and am now losing about 1.8 lbs/wk. It sucks and I wish it weren't so, but it's the truth, for me.

  3. I agree with Lori! Keep on Keepin' on girlfriend! Just remember to treat your body right. Get enough rest & sleep (as well as the food and activity – which I already know you've got down pat). Sometimes this is key! 🙂 Good luck! I know you can do it.
