That's so awesome! I get your pain. I tend to weigh myself every time i go near the scale (it's addictive). Throughout the day i fluctuate a lot too. Like 5 lbs! how? But being on a diet, I drink crazy amounts of water to curb my appetite so that makes a huge difference. I found that my weight in the morning after a pee is the most precise, since my body has worked through all the water from the day before!

Anywho, way to go! and Happy losing =D

You're doing great! Just remember it takes time and our body has to adjust at different intervals. You are doing the right things, that's awesome! Keep it up:)

I used to do a weekly cheat day until I realized that the following morning I felt horrible. headache, mood swings, etc. my body couldn't handle eating the garbage foods anymore.

Shannon, try not to become obsessed with the scale. I would avoid weighing yourself more than once a day. In fact, I recommend once a week or every few days. sometimes the day to day fluctuations can be so disappointing. You know when you are sticking with the program. trust it and you WILL lose

As the others have said. Don't weigh too often and drink your water. You've got this.
