Weight loss, week 4

This week I gained a pound. Karen said not to worry, that it was probably due to me being constipated, or else it could be due to it being the time when I would have gotten a period, that is if I still got them, I dont. I was so disappointed to be up. I will have to work hard for next weeks weigh in to make sure I go down and not keep going up. Its so disheartening when you do everything right, and I did, I ate healthily, granted I didnt exercise as much as I’d have liked because I put my back out. But I did everything else right. I drank loads of water, and I ate lots of fruit and vegetables, I cut down on my portion sizes as well. I’ve been obsessing over weighing myself, I know I should just weigh in every Thursday at my nutritionist appointment, but I cant. My own scales doesnt give me an accurate weight, so I dont know why I bother. It only makes me more anxious and leads to me overthinking and obsessively trying to plan ways to lose the weight. Heres hoping next week I’ll have some success again and go down rather than up in weight.

  1. From what I’ve noticed, women seem to have a harder time losing weight than men. I had a friend and her husband who went on the same diet. In the same period of time, he lost 20 pounds and she lost five. Don’t get discouraged but just do what you’ve been doing. I hope no one else in the system is sneaking out behind your back to get some extra nibbles.
