You are amazing and I'm always so impressed by your continued success!

Kati A.

Wow! What an amazing success story! And you are starting more adventures! You are truly an inspiration. I think the worst thing you can do is sit still & allow yourself to dwell in a rut. No one could ever say that about you. Good luck in all your endeavors! I'm sure they will be great!

I can so relate to the binge eating!dd a reply...

Ann M.

They talk about how long it takes to form new habits. Well, that binge eater can still come out after months and months of working hard to form good new habits. Damn her/him! Thanks for sharing that.

Sounds like a sodium thing...That's when I see screwy weights like that. Congrats on your loss!

Samantha W-L

I know this is from a couple months ago, but I thought I would comment anyway.I agree that it's water weight due to sodium. Whenever I have sushi with soy sauce, I'm up at least 3-4 pounds for the 2-3 days afterwards, and I feel super bloated. Once those 2-3 days passes, the weight falls right back off and I'm back to my weight from before I had the sushi, or less if I've been exercising and making good food choices since.
