Yeah sometimes I weigh more than once, I have even weighed before at night and weigh less than that morning....which makes no sense...this is what would happen on my other plans, TOM would come I would gain and bloat but I wouldn't lose it when it was over, TOM is over and I am still up 6 pounds. The weight started gain happened before my friend came, I have held steady at 320 now for several days that she has been here, only thing different was the gluten a week ago.

I didn't weigh in today, yesterday I was a little close to my low 317.8, so a little less than 4 pounds from low, friend is gone so I will be having a down day tomorrow for sure, she will be back in a couple of days, I gotta try to figure out a way to have down days with her here, I don't want to lose my progress and go back into my super bad habits. Will have to put some thought into this.

Well didn't write yesterday here, not did I have my down day, my down day food I had sit out the night before to dethaw and was all prepared, until my grandma took it upon herself to eat it, I have something sit out for today so I am hoping all will go well lol, kinda works out right though... Friend will be back tonight so I can have down today, up tomorrow, and really gonna try for another down, so sad at this point there is a good chance I won't meet my modified goal by Labor Day, I have been so tired too I don't know if its because I haven't done my rotations or because I haven't been drinking my water or taking vitamins! I am the only one that can do this I can't rely on anyone else to lose my weight(wouldn't it be wonderful if u could) and once again next week will be challenging, will be gone for 5 days, 3 nights in hotels, I just wish raw vegetables was something I really liked, if only celery tasted good by itself.... haha need to get on juddd website and look at the numbers for higher down days, another problem is my coffee creamer, I will get everything back on track and to start and I just poured me a big bottle of water, I feel like my body is full of toxins even, and I have done it to myself by not drinking water

Well I wanted to report that I made it through a down day, sometimes the hardest is just getting started again, although I don't really feel like I messed up or went crazy, just all the bloating I had threw me off and all the visits from my friend, and I know sets of up and down I will see my low weight again, I actually am starting to feel better maybe because of the water I drank had a little energy, did some housework, not much but hopefully I can get my energy back...I hate being so tired that I don't have the desire to do anything!

RG- glad to hear that you are feeling better. I am sure once you get back to regular rotations the scale will move down.

Silly me!!! I had an absolutely fantastic down day as far as eating was concerned, my only faults were not eating till near bedtime, and duh I forgot to drink anything yesterday....I had one cup of coffee and that took me all day to drink...so my weight was 317, I am sure it would of been lower if I would have drank my water!!! But I am glad to have two down days back under my belt, makes me happy to be back on track!

Good for you getting back on track! You'll be rewarded with some nice losses sticking to plan. It's just amazing what this WOE can do!

Not much to report, today was up day , I did have some liquids, not water but tea...best I could do today, holding on to grudges and confusion today, life is too short to let stupid stuff get you down but i still allow it, my mind constantly rewinds and replays, need to be getting to bed it is super late/early looking forward to and hoping for a great down day when I wake up

Good luck on your DD today RG.

I'm sorry you're struggling with emotional stuff. It makes focusing on weight loss that much harder. Ironically, being successful in losses makes the emotional stuff somewhat easier. Vicious circle. It sucks!

Yes carol, I think life is just one big catch 22. Was up this morning 318.4 wow! It is what it is. my lactose intolerance bothered me last night , well this morning about 7 am, it woke me up and long story short I had to take pepto, didn't want to but I also didn't want to be woke up again and try to rush down the stairs. Tomorrow will show a loss and I imagine even later today will show one as well.

someone talk me down..... 320.4 this morning I need some serious reassurance STAT!!! I had a beautiful down day yesterday and up two pounds this morning!!! Why do I keep getting back up to the 320s, this is crazy and now puts me over six pounds from my lowest I know the scale bounces but right now I am defying gravity and not in a wickedly good way luckily today is gonna be a fun day, family member coming in from out of town and we have a day planned, otherwise I would probably drive myself crazy

Repto-it is normal for the scale to bounce up and down for so many reason. It could be hormonal, water retention, issues with TMI, perhaps some food reaction to hidden gluten, etc. Sometimes after you reach new low there is a water occupying the fat cells that has let go...Just keep doing your rotation and keep your chin up. The weight will go down again!

I agree with Marika. Those bounces can be infuriating, but they sure do happen. Hang in there, keep loyal to your rotations, and it WILL go down. And have a super fun day today - you deserve it!

So I had my official weigh in this morning expecting an awful number...was exactly one pound less than when I left 320.4. I am glad but it makes no sense to me! I had 3 days of eating out just about every meal, every meal had gluten in it(acid reflux has been horrible!)I am beginning to think I only lose weight certain times of the month, because last month at the same time I had hit my low and that was after not dieting and eating when I was hanging out with friends etc....I personally don't know what to make of it, I am very glad I didn't gain but I should of...I did eat alot, we were active but nothing extreme, I slept most of the day once I got home...well a long nap and I was still in bed before midnight and slept til 8 am . Well I guess I will just chalk it up to your body has no rhyme or reason when it comes to weight loss..I plan on jumping right back on juddd wagon today with a down day I imagine it will be a struggle, I don't even know what if any down day foods I have here. But I already have two special events planned for next August and I would love to have some serious weight off, I don't want to set any specific goals, my body really does sabatoge itself when I have a goal...my end of August goal I had to change and I don't think I can even meet my second goal!! I do have an obscene amount of laundry to do today!!! So that will be my focus for now

I should get some sleep

Repto- have you tried drinking club soda? The plain one and you could add some lemon in it. Maybe it would be easier for you.
You are doing good!

I have been struggling alot--and failing, makes me so mad, I can't seem to get the stability I need to get back on track, for what it's worth I will be having a down day tomorrow, and hopefully things will get back on track. I could go on an on about all the crap going on right now that is just beating me mentally down...I know I have to be the one to keep on keeping on...

318.2 today, just realized Saturday was my 3 months on plan- right now I am at 16 pounds down, so basically a pound a week is my average right now-hopefully I can get back on track and raise my avg lbs per week, hopefully I will have something good to report next time I write

Haven't wrote for a day or so, got through my down day decently, yesterday I was 318.6, TOM so to be expected, haven't weighed yet this morning, really don't have the energy right now to shed my clothes, gonna have to here before I have any coffee, I am expecting the worse due to bloating etc...best I can do right now is stick to my plan best I can and ride out the next week or so...I would be lying if I didn't say right now I am just so discouraged, I have got to get under 300 I feel like it is my barricade and if I could just get there anything would be possible

Went ahead and forced myself to weigh even though I sure didn't feel like it, I excepted to be in the 320s, no TOM and up day yesterday and today I weigh in at 318.2, I am really starting to feel like my body is mostly in a maintence mode right now, I had hit the 318 zone at the end of June, have been a little lower an a little higher but I always seem to gravitate back to here, not all together a bad thing, I could be 16 pounds heavier, or even more, I so desperately wanted to reach that 299 goal by end of August, but life happened-friends, vacation etc....and life is more important than a certain number, and I just have to face it I am in my mid 30s, I don't exercise, and I have bad habits, and I don't have good self control, my weight loss is going to be slow...but better slow than none, and if I can slowly change a few eating patterns all is well!!! Going gluten free has helped I don't eat nearly the amount of processed food, like my sister had cookies and offered me some yesterday(on a up day) I could of took some of my gluten enzyme tablets, but I didn't , stuff like that isn't worth it, my sister tried my gluten free spaghetti last night, she couldn't tell the difference in taste, the spaghetti and a bisquik mix is all I have tried , no difference in taste, just alot more expensive, gonna try some flour next

Good going on the cookies RG! That's a major accomplishment. You've had just so much going on lately. I really do think once you have a nice block of time where you can really focus and work JUDDD seriously that you'll have some pretty spectacular losses. It's so worth it! You are going to feel so good when you get below 300 and see the numbers getting even smaller from there. I want that so much for you!

Thank you carol nice to know I have got a few people in my corner, it means alot!!!!! I haven't weighed for several days, TOM has just zapped energy from me, so I haven't been on rotations, but I haven't surprisingly enough been eating much at all, like yesterday I had a spinach salad and then 2 apples with peanut butter, it's been like that for days, which is good for me, have gluten free brownies in oven, gonna celebrate my dads birthday, well sort of, it was earlier this week, but with his job schedule and such, so told him I wanted to come over tomorrow and hang out, found the brownie mix at store and thought why not! so hopefully after tomorrow I will be back on rotation, that's about all going on in my world right now,
