    My weight loss is weird.
    So was 126.70kg last friday morning but this morning I'm 127.10kgs so added 0.40kgs, so added just under a lb.
    I might weigh again in a mo. I feel in my clothes smaller but scales saying added less than a lb?
    Like @Contralto said which part is water retention?
    So should i take this as a loss due to water tummy or just accept it for what it is and move on?

    What i will do is accept 127.10kg and see what next friday says.
    Like our bgs it is to be looked upon as which direction I'm heading rather than by how much, i guess.

    Roll on next friday weigh-in.
    Maybe less stress this week and less extreme heat!

    So lost compared to my mondays weight. By today I've only added 0.4kg rather than this 0.9kg.
    So lost since monday but added since friday???
    Confused? Me too.

    It can only be water retention which can cause such fluctuations?

    I was told to weigh first thing in the morning after a good night sleep because it reflects your real weight when food has digested.

    Think this is going to be my last posting as very few seem to acknowledge any of my posts, thanks to all for your support and I wish everyone luck on their weight loss journeys.

    Hi @rainbow79 :) - I have been a member of this Forum since 2014 and there's a lot of my postings 'unrated'! A lot of members just post without reading previous postings.
    I will be sad to see you not posting.

    I agree :). The Diabetes Nurse told me to weigh myself first thing on a morning in just underwear and empty my bladder too.

    @rainbow79 thank you for your encouragement. I hope you continue to post. Even though you have achieved your target weight I'm sure you will monitor your weight still. :)

    @rainbow79 I'm sorry on occasion I haven't rated. I have 4yr old in tow when I'm posting so can get distracted. I do read your posts, yours especially. Sorry I've taken you for granted on this thread. I feel I can rely on you. I'll ensure I rate yours first in future. I don't mind if it makes a diffrrence to our friendship. Don't leave us. Please?

    Weighed for FLO and lost since last monday morning. Just 0.10kg but still a loss. ;)
    I need to be strict for a few weeks to kick my loss into place.
