Nice to see you again and appreciate the response . Opinions though, don't seem to need any facts
Anyone living for any length of time with a food plan ( I will never call this journey a DIET) will have the frustrations of not understanding why the scale is not a good indicator of what is going on. We all ( maybe not all ) know that sodium will increase water retention most of the time so the scale will not show a "loss" and that is the tip of that iceburg. "logic" has nothing to do with this article since it science and biophysics are not based on logic but on research data. It is not 'logical' that mold was the catalyst to the discovery of PCN... and just to show what does happen: my scale is up 3 pounds overnight but my keto strips are dark and my pants are falling off! Obviously my sodium intake was up ( not due to exercise water retention)... and so it goes
HAve a great day TChice

Oh Tell me about it! My scale went up NINE pounds in one week! Of course I knew it was water according to my wedding band but STILL NINE!!!!
That was 3 days ago and 8 are gone and my ring is still snug so I know more to come.
You have the right stuff going for you! Don't forget that all the waliking is bound to replace some fat with muscle which is denser and although takes up less space, it does weigh more on the scale!! Clothing guide is better..soooo, why do I still hop onto the scale every morning???? because it is a tool

here's an update... scale is back to normal readings and water was the culprit.Numbers are the same and clothes are stlll looser so my scale is playing with me again! I am having my planned eating off my normal routine since it is birthday ending # 65 for me today ( ofrficially since it is after midnight).I started with a slice if pizza, one finger tender and a large DQ cone for the day before. Today will be Chinese so the salt will play havock again.And back to weigh in on Thursday!!!
Hey guys, If I can play scale Mambo and learn the dance, so can you

My DH has gotten a lot out of this article as well and has lost over 70 pounds his way.Cannot argue with success and his 6 pack!
When the numbers go up or do not change, there is always a good reason.
Have a great Thanksgiving Day and enjoy the food.We can do it without over doing it!

When I first read this, perhaps a year ago, this article seemed a little apocryphal to me. But I never forgot it, and as I spent the bulk on last year on 3 plateaus, with 2 short drops between them, it would come back to me. As I read it again today, I think "yeah, that's exactly what's going on". I love the idea of putting this on your phone for easy access.

I just joined the forum yesterday and my first post was about going back and forth with the same 2 pounds for about 3 weeks now....someone left a comment with this article...I read it and then printed it so I keep it with me. I'd never really thought about some of the things in the article...it REALLY made me feel so much better. Hopefully I'll be able to push through this stall!!

Yeah, well, I tell ya...I have been working out like a maniac, and I am losing inches all over quite successfully. But I'll be danged if that wretched scale has not moved any which way... but UP.
I think its from the DEVIL.
Yup.
All scales are made in the pit 'O hell!
