After 28 days FT'ing

The scale was over the place this last week. A few days ago. I was down another .5 lb, for a total of 6.5 lbs for for the 4 weeks (I feel better reporting that).
Today is another story: special time of the month, a little traveling, a few extras, who knows?

I didn't go crazy over the weekend...a little popcorn and '3' count them '3' bites of chocolate gelatto, and I don't mean huge serving spoon bites either :). But I'm up a little. I'd be more concerned if it didn't happen to everyone else from time to time.  I would like to think that this low sugar,
no grain/legume regimen would provide faster results. Not to be discouraged-I'm continuing on.

I hope you all have a great day


  1. The up and down thing happens all the time. It's OK. 3 bites is great. That is what I do from time to time. YOu just gotta learn when to stop.
    Have a great day :-)

  2. Yup. I feel the same way! But I know it's normal, and progress IS being made. Have a great day!

  3. Jeri, I think your weight loss is great. You should be happy with that. I know what you mean though, you work so hard to get it off and then it comes back so much faster. It happens to all of us!

  4. It does seem discouraging to lose .5 pounds, but from my experience looking back 5 or 6 weeks and looking at average per week loss is a better measure cause so many things effect day to day loss. I'm also learning that for me there's one week of the month where I'm either gonna lose nothing or a very little bit. maybe this was that week for you. Hope this helps. Have a great evening.

  5. I guess we have to look at it this way, even if we dont lose or even if we are up a little bit we have to go by how we feel and how are clothes fit. You are doing great.
