R5 Day 7 120.7 (+.1, +4 LDW)

Day 4 of either a gain or minuscule change. I have enough apples to do an apple day. I think I may hold off on that for 1 more day. If I don't see a significant drop tomorrow, for my own sanity (which is beginning to shake), I'll do an apple day.

My tummy is still distended. Is it possible this is the first round I've started while during my cycle? This is the only explanation I can come up with for the distended tummy. The weight I could very well see given how close to my goal I am, but the distended tummy is something else for certain.

I had my grissini yesterday for the first time. They didn't have plain, so I opted for the garlic flavor and I must say it was a treat. I took mustard, mixed a little tobasco and a drop of plain stevia and made sweet hot mustard dip for it. Yummmmm.

Le sigh. I know I should know better (and I do) but I can't hide my disappointment. I just want to go back to bed. Today is cleaning day though and I vowed to exercise every day. Maybe I'll just go back to bed for a little while.

Off to check on you guys (though most of you seem too busy with the weekends to update).

XOXOX

I think you were right, hormones... try the apple day tomorrow, but if its your cycle, you may have to ride it out. .1 is just a blip in the round!! You will get down! Enjoy the day!!

Thanks Lis - I'll try! I'm so frustrated.

Lis is right: this is a blip in the round- Don't lose heart- Keep doing what you're doing. Keep drinking your water, and sticking to protocol. The weight WILL release.

Go back to bed, rest some more.

Stay focused.

love you!

I'm with you on fighting to lose weight. It's been a battle to lose 2 ounces the past few days.
Keep moving forward!

Stay srong, stay focused, keep the faith. You will most likely see a large release soon. From what I remember of your other rounds - this has happened before, right -no loss one or two days and then on the third the scale show a really nice release. Sending you good releasing vibes - K.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Kathryn, yes that has been a familiar pattern but NEVER in the 1st week. This is a first for me!

Think good thoughts for me... RELEASE, RELEASE, RELEASE!

This is definitely strange for your first week??? Maybe the apple day will be just enough for you to break thru the stall. Let me know how it goes.

Maybe you are just so close to releasing all your abnormal fat stores? How are your measurements? Thats the only explanation I can think of, though Ive been having a crazy 1st ten days as well, so it could be something else. I am not enjoying this round.

Keep going, you can do it!
