Mine only went up a few times.... The first time, I felt awful too. However.... You need to get it into perspective. Look at your months progress / weight loss... Or look at inches lost :-)

I think you've done very well if this is the first time you have gone up! Our bodies fluctuate so much just during one day. You have been very consistent. Don't worry about it. I read yesterday a body can fluctuate 4 pounds within one day!

I agree wait a couple days before you let it bother you and see what happens.

OK, trying to chill out about this. Today is a fast day anyway, so just a yummy protein and fruit shake planned when I get home. Then, going to try and just relax and not worry too much, maybe go to bed early. I'm just really struggling to work out what I should be doing - I confessed to a friend actually (we are both runners) that I cared more about being sub 7stone on the start lne of London marathon in April, than I do getting a sub 4hour time. That really worries me - I'm just all over the place at the moment and I don't know what to do; 7 and a half stone was my original target but now I feel it isn't enough...

Be REALLY careful psylina.... That you aren't aiming too low. Are you SURE you need to be below 7 stone... If you are getting that obsessive about it, it may be time to talk to someone. The last thing you needs an eating disorder and judging by some of your comments, I am concerned you may be heading down that way. May be look at yourself in the mirror, describe what you see to someone else - ask them if that's what they see. We sometimes can't be objective, and see ourselves as larger than anyone else - that's a REAL danger point... Please be careful xx

I know, last time I was under 7 stone I was very sick. And I love my running, I cant run when I dont eat enough - its not been an issue yet as was only restricting on fast days when I didnt run anyway but now...i just dont know what to do, I was so pleased I had hit my target but im so scared I will put weight back on again, all I can think of doing is losing more I was so upset by the scale this morning, I felt like everything had been wasted. What is wrong with me?? Why is this so hard... Im scared about tomorrow, im not sure I will be,able to stop eating and then I will just get bigger again.

I think you need to talk to someone.... Is there anyone who is not 'too' close to you? Or maybe a doctor, or a helpline.... Please talk to someone...I am really concerned you are heading into trouble xxx hugs

Psy, do not fret over a half pound or one pound or two pounds. That wouldn't be very far from where you want to be. Just tell yourself "Hey the scale went up, I should drink some extra water or something." Just know that the scales are going to fluctuate up and down but YOU know how to maintain control. Look at what you've accomplished! You had probably less than 10 pounds to lose. Most people take months to get that last 10 pounds off and you did it in a month! Promise yourself you won't freak out over such a small amount of gain and then you won't lose control. It will go back down. STAY THE COURSE! YOU ARE AWESOME!

What is 7 stone? I am not familiar with that term. I'm guess the sub 4 hour time is doing the marathon in under 4 hours.

A stone is 14 lb. So 98lb

Psy why don't you go get your body fat % checked. i think it will really change the way you see yourself. Also muscle in denser then fat so realistically you might just have more muscle then you did last time you were under 7 stone. These are things I would really like you to consider.

Youre probably right - I have a lot more muscle definition at this weight 7 1/2 than I last did at this weight, and I am still able to lift weights at gym, run etc. Didn't weigh myself this morning as was sure it would upset me (I've not had a BM for a couple of days) and managed to eat some breakfast as after a fast I feel so dizzy in mornings and as I have a 20minute cycle into work, I need to do something. I then ate a bit of a choc and a biscuit which I know I shouldn't have done but... Feeling better than yesterday; trying to focus on muscle - I've spent a long time building up muscle in my body; do I really want to lose all that to just be 'skinny'? Been there, done that and it didn't help! Thanks for all your kind words, and for letting me share - today is another day, I will try and move forwards (and adjust my goal weight back to what I said originally!)

If it's not too personal: What height are you Psylina? (If it is too personal feel free to tell me to get lost) 7 stone is in the first quarter of the "normal" BMI range for someone who is 5ft (my sister's height), but severely underweight for someone 5'11 (my height). 
01 Feb 13 by member: riocaz
Im 5ft 1.5 and yes, I agree. Target back to 105 and I wont adjust it down! Im fine as I am, just need to.maintain and stay fit! 
01 Feb 13 by member: psylina
Yeah.... So pleased psylina... You are so right, you DEFINATELY don't want to be 'skinny', far better to have muscle definition and look healthy and athletic :-). ...... Mind you stay off the chocolate and biscuits... Far better to have fruit and yoghurt - although not always as tasty LOL 
01 Feb 13 by member: Sk1nnyfuture
I vaguely recalled you mentioning you were close to Zoe's height psylina (though I may have been confusing you with someone else). Yup you are doing the right thing. At that weight I am sure you are already thin (it's really at the beginning of the BMI range) but you are healthy and toned and thats so much more important!!!

Sk1nnyfuture: I dunno. Chocolate is good as a treat so-long as it's occasional & eked out as far as it will go (a tiny bit of very high cocoa solid dark chocolate grated over raspberries and yoghurt goes a very long way and will only add a few calories (Think half a square of lindt 85% = 27cal)... The problem is stopping yourself eating the rest of the bar. But then once it's past 60% cocoa I can't eat it on it's own so it _should_ be safe in the freezer.

LOL riocaz.... The yoghurt and raspberries with the chocolate grated over sounds yummy AND healthy :-)
