I'm on the "I don't know whether to laugh or cry" train with everyone this morning! I have an "official" weigh and measure every Monday morning and put everything in a big spreadsheet with pretty charts. This morning everything is down: measurements, BF%, the price of tea in China, etc. Except my weight. That's UP from where it was more than a week ago! So, as a reminder: Weight loss isn't linear and the scale lies.

Good goig jschwab!

I created my own monster. Yesterday I had to run an errand and told roommate I could her a lift to work on the way. Then she asked me if I could wait while she bought one thing, she didn't want to carry it home after work, and she said she wanted a ride to the dr the next day.

It wasn't one thing she was buying groceries. I got so upset last night I couldn't sleep and went to Taco Bell. The food was awful, a terrible binge.

I take her to the dr then she needs to go to the pharmacy, then she signs up at my gym and she wants rides to the gym as well.

AHHHH!!!!!!! I told her I want to be free, I go to the gym when I wake up or feel like it and I don't want to schedule it. N.ow I feel I'm a selfish unkind jerk

Back on track here--fingers crossed!

True dat about weight vs. volume loss, even us Atkins WLP types were told by the good doc to go by fit of our clothes, not the scale:

"... loss of pounds is not the only way to measure success, and the scale is the least reliable reflection of fat loss. Look at the other markers. Are you feeling better than you used to? Do you have the energy to do things you want to do? If so, then something is happening to your body. Do your clothes feel looser? Have you tried on those clothes that “felt a little too tight” just a few weeks ago? Continue to measure yourself regularly. If you're losing inches, the scale will eventually catch up."

Nawchew.... u get to put yourself first. As women we are trained from an early age to give up self and put others first. Since becoming a mom, Ive learned the value of taking care of me first. It seems counterintuitive, but I can care for my kids better if I am cared for.

Which avoids the food cravings, indulgences and off plan noshing.

No change. I carbed out with hummus and tomatoes tonight so I'm sure the scale will blip higher a bit in the near future.
