Interesting exercise

I have been thinking how I must have lost gobs in the up-and-down scalestravaganza since October. So, since I have been keeping track, I went back and added up how much I have "lost" since October -- almost 30 pounds!!!!!!!! YIKES. My net loss is just 7.8. What a waste.

My new goal is to make every pound that comes off STAY off. So there. ;-)

Grrrr. You're not allowed to be mean to yourself. You took stock, reviewed the data and made a decision. That's the important thing. Look at it this way, you know you're capable of losing!

(That's half of it.)

Hang in there and keep working at it. It takes a lot of false starts and jumps IMHO.

I think about that a lot - because on maintenance - I will be loosing the same 2 pounds over, and over, and over - for life.

But I don't look at it that way - I pop up and down in tiny little increments ALL the time - 1 pound often. If I go up one pound a week and then settle back down - I do not think of that as 52 pounds over the course of a year.

Yes, I realize that I COULD think of it that way - but I think that unless we were on liquid diet - those fluctuations are just going to happen. I guess I were going up in 5 pound increments it might be a little different story - but the tiny ones - I think are normal - salt, hormones, metabolism, etc.
