I'm so upset! For the past couple of days, my weight has started going back up! I've been trying to narrow it down and I think I have it figured out. The dessert I've been making for my husband and I seems to be culprit. He doesn't seem to be too affected by it, but I am. I was down to 127 the other day and since then it's gone up to 128.4 and then 128.8 today. I'm going to cut out this dessert and see if that helps tomorrow. I'm going to do perfect on my diet today!

As an upside to this problem, I'm starting to develop a sense for staying away from something I crave if I know it's going to make my weight go up. It's amazing what happens when you know exactly what foods make you gain weight. It's a lot easier to resist them when you see their daily effect on you.

It's great that you are adjusting your diet based on it's affect on you, BUT be cautious of relying too heavily on weight loss or gain on a day to day basis. There are a lot of factors associated with normal fluctuations in weight daily. Time of day, type of clothes, amount of food and or beverages you've had prior to weighing in, time of month, etc. Just be aware that it's not always that you've done something wrong the day before. There is really not anything wrong with weighing in each day, but pick a weekly way in day and measure yourself more against that than the day to day weight when you are looking at actual weight loss. Also remember if you've added any exercise to the bargain recently that in the beginning you may actually gain weight as you trade a bit of fat for muscle. In the long run though, that muscle might weigh more, but it burns of fat and calories faster as you progress. Don't get discoraged!!!

I agree with Melinda. I weigh myself every day as well but I'm trying to focus on the big picture which is the weekly weigh in. Good luck!!
