Ugh. Where did that come from? I didn't eat too much or anything off plan yesterday!! Boo-hoo. I will repeat the mantra: Weight loss isn't linear. Weight loss isn't linear.

CityGirl8 - I read somewhere years ago that fat cells are extremely stubborn. When they start to burn off they will uptake water to try to survive. That could account for the extra weight. Then you pee alot for a day or two and that's when you get the "whoosh". I don't know if there is any scientific truth to it, but that seems to be how it works for me.

Good to see everybody back! Dustpuppy, when I doing everything right and the scales aren't budging, I just keep at it and tell myself that eventually something's got to give, if I'm doing everything right. And eventually it does. Not always when I want it to, but eventually.
