i’ve been struggling at the same weight for several months now. i’ve seen a cyclical effect happening where i’m down on weigh-in day, then go back up for the rest of the week. i just can’t break out of it, and i don’t know why. just when i thought i’ve broken this horrible plateau (although can it really be called a plateau when it’s your starting weight?), i hit the same number again. and, instead of daily fluctuations my weight stays the same every day. but, i’ve really noticed how much more muscular my legs have gotten, and i think i may have dropped an inch or two in several places (i checked yesterday, but it doesn’t really count until joe measures me). it’s so confusing and depressing. i’m really looking forward to my doctor’s appointment on monday. i’m hoping i’ll get some answers or, at the very least, be referred to a nutritionist. part of me thinks that maybe this is the weight i am supposed to be, but the other part hopes that’s not true. i’d like to change a little.
