Not the sort of news I wanted to hear given I've just started fat flush. Bummer.

Did you have any dairy or highly processed carbs?

Don't worry, I'm back, back in town. Feeling terrific because I know I WAS doing the right things and it just took a little time to show up on the scales.

I wasn't eating any processed carbs, that would definitely be a no no.

Very Happy

That's better progress.

Very happy to hear it.

I also lost some weight since I started. Only a bit but still I'm happy.

Speaking of marathons, well sort of, I ran 5 miles today. First time in nearly 10 years. I feel pumped (and hopefully not to sore tomorrow). Smile

Lost less than 1lb over last 8 days since last weighed in, but only just less than 1lb so am not going to jump off a cliff or anything.

Must have walked at least 2 miles over the weekend. Very pleased with that.

Ever since I learned what a diet was, i thought the scale would always be accurate and predict results! Well I learned to be patient and realize that the body, especially being a woman, can fluctuate over 3 pounds in any one day! I started to weight train (lift weights) and gained 4 lbs. in a week! This was just water retention, a trainer pointed out, but I realized to focus on how I felt, and also use a measuring tape to meaure my bust, waist, hips, thighs, legs and arm. I was leaning up after all! I've heard this time and again...slow weight loss is the best weight loss! Anything faster than 1-3 pounds a week could be just water or even precious muscle which if lost is very difficult to regain (talk about soreness.....) I learned I didn't have to kill myself at the gym but that exercising a litle everyday helped tone me up and keep up my metabolism so I could eat more. Fat Flush is a great plan because it stresses healthy food, but it does take time...

This is a great time to make your own cranwater while they are in season. I get a bag of cranberries for 99 cents here so you are saving bundles; it is however, a little time consuming.
