Hey I just realized it has been more then a week since my last post! I am so sorry! Keep me accountable if I don’t write every couple of days tell me on facebook www.facebook.com/IdealProteinEdmonton or twitter www.twitter.com/IdealProteinEdm So I have been back on Ideal Protein for 13 day now and have lost 12lbs! I am so freakin excited!! But what I am really struggling with is the scale. I am stepping on it everyday and that is not a good thing at all. For example yesterday I stepped on it and I was up 2 lbs and today I was down 4lbs. CRAZY! And this is why you should not way everyday, it will drive you CRAZY! Now alot of people will ask you how a big fluctuation like that is possible, well it can be any number of things. For me it was water retention. I did not drink near enough water the day before and it showed on the scale. I know it sounds crazy that your body retains water from not having enough but it does. The less water you drink the more it will retain. Some other reasons why the scale can go up are constipation, deviation from the program or that you are weighing at a different time or in different clothes. So all your chronic weighers out there STOP IT! Your mental well being will thank you!And I say that to myself as much as anyone else! Have a great day! Happy losing!
