Re: The 25lb Challenge October thread

Ok ladies....I am about to go do this--->

I was at 161 last Friday. Today it looks like I'm about 170. (Our scale is a basic-model thing with little lines and dots--rather hard to read.)
I DO.NOT.GET.IT!!!!!! I have eaten good all week! I am nursing! What the heck happened? Could it be water-weight? I haven't eaten anything unusual, except I had a protein bar yesterday. I hadn't nursed yet or (tmi) gone to the bathroom when I weighed. Is there any chance of that being it?
And last week when I was 1 lb. away from my pre-preg weight, my pants still didn't fit.
I am ready to just break down and cry.

Do you move your scale? Also Kimmie says not BFing before will cause an issue. Plus going to the bathroom is a big deal before. I met some people on WW that said it would cause a lb gain. So all your questions have yes answers.

If you move your scale around you have to find a level spot and put it there always (exact same spot). I have seen someone on MFP gain 5lbs only to lose it again. The scale in the AMA e flat spot is very important.

Those full boobs can weight like 2 lbs or more. They hold milk and extra water in the tissue. Plus not going to the bathroom and being up a bit before weighing. Weighing should be after you get up and empty yourself first. That can explain the weight. I can weigh a 4 lb difference from AM weigh in and evening time before or after dinner.

So - here is my weirdness for the day. I lost more weight after 2 days of chinese food. I am 153.8. Not sure how, or why, but I will not argue and think I might eat it again just to see if it happens again. My milk is leaking everywhere, and my body seems to like chinese take out for some reason. Not sure if I am just messed up, or I was nto getting enough calories before and the chinese made it so. But I am losing by cheating now. While dieting I gained 4 lbs. Now I am confused as to what to do. I am thinking I might have to join MFP and count calories instead of anything else. I think I am not eating enough and starving my body till it holds onto fat and water.

Kimmie if you join MFP we would love to have you. Also it could be. The extra fat might have been what you needed. I lost over 3lbs this week!

If you join MFP my name is likka_me look me up.

Re: The 25lb Challenge October thread

I am really thinking about it. The only thing I can think of is I have not been getting enough fat in my diet. I have been eating no fat, no wheat, extremely low carb, and extremely low calorie. I just have not been hungry. I need to eat more I think. Then I freak out that eating more will mean a gain. I am still breastfeeding though and am sure I need more than what I have been eating.

Try eating more for a week and see what happens.

When MFP recommends 1200, they mean for you to eat back your exervise calories. Plus you need to add 300+ calories for breastfeeding. I bet if you start eating more you'll lose. Check out the eat nore to lose groups on MFP for a ton of info on why you need more calories
