I've been bad about keeping up with posting my weigh ins. For week 5 it was because I didn't like the results. According to my scale I went up 3.2 pounds that week. Well, I don't really trust that scale and it is the long term that really matters.
Week 6 showed a 4 pound loss then. Do I really think I lost 4 pounds that week? NO. It just shows how off my bathroom scale can be and how I need to look at long term trends and not spot weigh ins.
Week 7 now shows a 0.6 pound loss for a total of 5.4 pounds over 7 weeks. I'm happy with this. While I don't trust my scale I can tell by the trends that I have lost weight and that is the important thing. Slow is fine; just not UP!
