I'm happy enough to see a small loss. I'm really happy though to be sneaking further away from the 80's. Thanks for the support guys it really does help to keep motivated.

Yeah they can be frustrating, sometimes I get on expecting a really good result and am quite disappointed. I just figure regardless of what the scales say I feel much better than before so even that is a good result.

You have got to take the long view regarding your weigh ins. It is very difficult to back two good weeks in a row. The body usually likes to process a good week by adjusting itself the following week. Good things are still happening to your body but the results are masked.

There are many factors to consider; you could be making muscle which will pay back down the line, your body is holding back fluid because it thinks it may need it because you are working it harder, your weigh in coincided with a fuller bladder or bowel so distorting what is the real state of play, you may be on the verge of getting sick (or that time of the month) so your body is again retaining fluid just in case.

Another mundane reason; you could be standing on the scales on the wrong spot. Many scales give different reading whilst other scales have programmed tolerances so that you have to weigh significantly different for the reading to change. My scales give different readings, so I safe guard it by recording the number that comes up three times in a row. Sometimes that can take quite a while!

Lastly, sometimes it is our own fault...we have failed to follow through in somewhere (knowingly or unknowingly) and something in our food intake or exercise routines is letting us down.

As you become more aware and knowledgeable how your body reacts you will be able to identify which is which and take measures as needed.

you are sooo right on the reading of the scales Kim, I nearly died when I did this, I was weighing in the bathroom and then one day thought I'd weigh in just beside the bed and whoa the result was a difference of 200gm loss - guess which result I took ha ha ha. I weighed three times to make sure the scales weren't playing with me. I have the weight watchers scales that give out the fat & water in your body plus your bmi (which by the way is finally in a healthy weight range - just!!!!) and the total amount of weight you have lost since starting standing on them.

I'm especially happy because I had a couple ordinary days diet wise. I guess I must have been extra good on the other days.

"Mixing it up" can be a very effective way to keep the body on its toes and not just diet either...this works for exercise too. Routine food intake and routine exercise allows the body to find a "cruising" speed. We want to keep that body rev-ing!
