Puzzled by the scale;
Seven hundred calories
isn't much to eat.

Your body gets used to however much you eat, that is why you don’t want to get down too far. I can only eat 1100 calories and not gain after eating that way for so long. It doesn’t make sense because eating 200 calories should make me gain when I work out, but it does.

I hear you. I am trying to stay off the scale, I feel like putting it out in the garage or something. I gained a pound this week, and there is no way I went 3,500 calories over. No way at all. It is so bizarre, and it brings me down. It's probably water retention, but ugh. Let's both keep doing what we are doing, but stay off the scale. Maybe weigh once a month.

It took me a long time to realize that the scale is not my friend, but I put mine away and weigh very infrequently. A nice loss made me euphoric and an unexpected stall or gain made me think "what the hell" and often start to overeat. My mantra now is "Have I done everything I could today to eat on plan and totally clean? Have I exercised? Then the weight will come off when it comes off." Giving up the constant weighing really helped me lose weight. Could possibly help you at this point. Good luck! You are doing so well!
