When I lost 104 lbs the first time around I would lose 20 lbs in six weeks and then only 3-5 in the next six. I was seeing a specialist every six weeks who was known for "firing" his patients who didn't lose weight. On the low weight loss appts he would lecture me "Medication will not help if you don't do your part." After the second such lecture I pointed out to him that I was his only patient who hadn't gained over Christmas - and in fact on my 6 wk checks had never gained (not that consistent weekly) and in the end of my time with him I had lost 104 lbs in 52 weeks. As I have said before, it's too bad I found 60 of it again!

Thanks so much everyone! I think it will be a great visual for the talk I'm going to do. I am glad it is useful for that and for some of you because I will say my body is really really annoying during the three weeks a month I tend to gain or stay the same weight, lol! while waiting for the weight to drop!

Dianne ... I made an 11x17 of those charts and had Staples print it out for me .. I'd be happy to email it to you if you want, Twinnie, and you can alter it as needed for your bunch .. I think it also fits on standard paper without the verbage ... and Girl, you are just as amazing as I am, otherwise we could not be twins!

I just noticed this exact thing on my ****** yesterday. When I'm honest with myself and put all my weigh-ins in the program, it bounces around quite a bit. But when you pull it out to a 6 month or year long view, it's quite a lovely steady-looking downward trend that emerges. And I realized that even if I continue to lose at the slowish pace I have been lately, I'll get to goal within a year. Not through heroic 15 lbs. in one month losses, but through 2 and 3 and 4 lbs. a month. I'll get there.

Just. Keep. Swimming.

Thank you TaDa! I think that your chart displays the BEST reason for daily weigh ins - to use data to interpret trends. The scale is a great tool, and all the little numbers for each day's weight help me make decisions.

During the slow loss times I find that looking back at my journal lets me see that 1. it's happened before (sigh) and 2. I got through it and now weigh less. It's motivational to "see" a loss of 3 or 4 pounds for a month - even if it's not as much as I want...it's fat that's GONE! During times of faster loss it's fun for me to watch that line zig zag down.

Reading the graph of your loss rate over time may also show you that you DO need to tweak diet or exercise. Alrighty then, now you have information to use to make changes.

My daily graphing includes my Fasting Blood Sugar (which is why I started tracking in the first place), my goal FBS and my goal weight. Sometimes I think I'll put exercise amounts on there, because I'm interested to see if there is a correlation between weight loss and exercise. (I already know there is between BS and exercise). I probably could learn a lot if I charted my calories and carbs too. But I don't tho when I first started I did write down my foods daily and tried to estimate calories. Now I use ****** often and my meals are very, very plain and boring so I don't need to write the same thing every day. I have a monthly chart of daily weight and daily FBS and a total time on plan chart with end of month numbers for both of these.

I'm doing OK with weight loss and I use my bathroom scale, my small food measuring scale, the labels on packages, my glucose meter, the readouts on the treadmill (heartrate, distance, time, calories), a tape measure, inspirational goal weight clothes/too big clothes, my journal, my excel charts, ******, the support and advice of all of you on LCF...all as tools to help me get healthier.

I will Listen to TaDa...and Have patience

my chart

Just wanted to add to the discussion by sharing my chart. This is only the last (almost) 4 months. I've lost only 14 lbs. You'll notice that the month of March has no spikes upward. That's not because my weight didn't go up and down, it's because I decided not to chart it unless it was down. I think it's more instructive and useful to use all the data to get the most honest picture, so I went back to recording everyday I weighed. I like to see the downward trend. It helps me not obsess on the numbers. Next I'll plot a best fit line

I've seen both sides of this. I stalled for years the first time I did LC.I worked through the whole Atkins list when I was stalled to no avail.

The second time I experienced weight loss in a pattern that looks like yours.

The difference was a medication that dropped my blood sugar and made subtle change to my metabolism. It made a dramatic difference. (It wasn't a drug that has this effect on other people but worked for me because of my high insulin sensitivity but poor insulin secretion.)

Sometimes stalls have to do with metabolic issues that aren't going to respond to the tips and tricks.

I'd say if you go two months without any weight loss and are weighing and logging food carefully, so you can verify that you really are eating the carbs and calories you think you are, it is time to head for a good, young endocrinologist.

Make sure it is a young one, relatively fresh from school. Most of the horror stories in my email are from people who see docs trained 15 years ago of more. They think they know everything, but their knowledge is seriously out of date.

Great post! Two months ago I showed a gain for the first time in 15 months of LCing, without much change in my routine. Didn't panic and stayed the course. This month not only dropped the several pounds I had "gained" but lost another 5 to go with them. Just have to keep on keeping on!

Pauline,

What a great visual! Amazing! It really puts it all in perspective. I will be making a spreadsheet to track my progress inspired by you!!!

If I PM you my e-mail, would you awfully mind forwarding it to me? (I guess I can just save directly as jpeg off of this thread, but e-mail will be easier). I am planning to share it with my TOPS group if that's OK with you. It will be very encouraging.

THANK YOU...you have no idea how much I needed this today!

feeling so........down...for a number of reasons! (expecting too much too soon.....feeling like "I deserve"________, feeling sorry for myself, etc)...
...I just went on a binge including a piece of bread, chocolate chip mint ice cream with hot fudge...and some oatmeal!!????...Just feeling a little bad today. (lost my mom last year...even though I have 3 wonderful kids of my own, it's still hard w/out mom...even at 45 yrs old)... My husband couldn't understand why I was binging....saying...you're doing so great, why are you doing this?....BUT it's just my impatience...thinking I should have lost 20 lbs in 3 weeks...Anyway, I'm so appreciative of this post....PATIENCE is so important!!! love you guys...Beth

Things like this is why I am here. For the last 10 years, I have been bouncing around the LC thing by myself. I did not understand that.... Well, I just did not understand!!

I needed to read, and I have been reading ..ALOT of the posts here, and THE thing that stands out the most is, UPS AND DOWNS ARE NORMAL!!!

THE GRAFTS ARE GRAET. We all lose site of the big picture.

Looks great right? Well the year's graph says nothing about all the daily and weekly disappointments in weight gain and lack of weight loss. Here is an average two month's segment of that year and well, let's just say there were weeks of disappointment in there:

2 Month Weight Chart 5/04-6/04


But in the long run .. a bunch of these spiky weight charts add up to the year's chart above. Dr. Atkins himself tells us not to consider something a stall without a month of ZERO weightloss or inch loss -- not to tweak unless it comes to that ... If I had taken those weeks of (mostly inexplicable) weight gains seriously, I would never have had that one year chart that meant significant weightloss ... even if it was rollercoaster ride.

I was not sure whether to post this or not, but if it helps one person just settle down and settle in for the long haul, it will have been worth posting ..

Thank you for posting that. I really needed to see it.

I lost 80 pounds easily in one year doing Atkins (honestly with some small cheats) and my chart looked just like that....its the big picture.

It took 3 years for me to gain 50+ pounds back after I lost my husband and have been back on Atkins for 3 weeks and have bounced up and down with a 7 pound loss and NO CHEATS....which makes me want to EAT CARBS....your chart made me realize that I just need to keep trucking along...it will come

I've been thinking about this thread as I look at the kinds of "rewards" we get at TOPS. I suppose I might someday get a five consecutive losses thing to sew on my scarf, but in twelve weeks back at it, I haven't gone five consecutive weeks with no gain even though 4 out of 5 weeks and each month I have been the best loser. And I may never make it to the end of the 'on-going gift contest' where everybody is on the list for the first week and then if you miss or gain you get dropped off the list and the last one on the list wins a prize.

As an aside, it's fascinating that so many people groove on this visual. Of course it's spectacular, BUT... I've read that only like 13% of adult Americans can make sense of an x-y coordinate graph like this. I wonder how many people look at it and have the standard reaction, which is apparently a sense of inadequacy and wishing they had paid better attention in school when this was taught... The pie chart comment was funny, but it would be great if there was a way to represent it that didn't challenge the non-mathematical so much.

Raven, wow, this is so fascinating ... I am extreeeeeeeemely surprised. Numerous professions utilize line graphs on a daily basis.

I am an elementary school teacher and we start laying the foundations to understanding line graphs even prior to grade 3. We teach simple ordered pairs in the 4th grade. It has been my experience that by 5th grade, students usually have no problem reading simple line graph trends, producing line graphs (by plotting ordered pairs), and understanding concepts like x-axis and y-axis, ordered pair, label, trend, etc. Believe it or not, this is one of the easiest topics in 5th grade math.

Because they are so visual, I have always assumed that line graphs boast some of the highest concept retention rates in students. Apparently, I was mistaken.

Well, I'll just pipe in and put this out there ... people who have been working on losing weight (ha! especially those of us lifetime dieters) are probably pretty advanced in their knowledge and understanding of something like a weight chart -- and would not qualify as your average American ... Well, and we are the subset of the population that are tech-savvy on a certain level which excludes a LOT of people too ....

Either way, I am really glad that this has been helpful to the people who have posted here! I did give my talk and actually, it's kind of funny, because this graph visual specifically got some people to start using the logging software! They asked and I sent around a list of these free programs online:

http://www.******.com
http://www.thedailyplate.com
http://www.myfatsecret.com
http://dailyburn.com
http://www.nutridiary.com
http://www.************.com

I have received a few emails about them already ... I got this one last night:

Hi Pauline

Thank you so much for telling us about the website. I have been using it for 3 days and I am so very pleased.

Since I was your age, I have discovered that I can control my weight a lot better limiting carbs, but was always confused to keep track of both and always wondered how many calories I was consuming. This is so great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Thank you,

HUGS
XXXXXXX
Very cool

I was not sure whether to post this or not, but if it helps one person just settle down and settle in for the long haul, it will have been worth posting ..

You know what to do. Just do it!!!
I am going to print this out and post it on the wall in my bathroom in front of my scale so that when I get on there and don't see a loss I will still see YOUR loss and keep my resolve! THANK YOU!

Thanks for this! The graphs are awesome. I have lost most of what I want to lose, but it's so darn easy to get disgusted with myself in the stall to lose the last 10 bs. and forget what I've already done. And then the feeling builds on itself and snowballs, and we all know where that goes....!

Patience, patience, patience......wonder what my problems will be once I get to goal....I know there'll be some....
