This is our 7th weigh in for our 10 week weigh in.
Weight Loss Results-Week 7
- Laura 0.0 lbs (Goal: 2 lbs/week)
- Kerry -7.4 lbs (Goal: 2.5 lbs/week)
- Cindy -3.0 (Goal: 5.0 lbs/week)
I googled water retention during your period and found an article on the Mayo Clinic’s website here. Basically, they say they think it’s hormones that causes it and you need to reduce your salt, exercise some and eat your veggies to help get rid of the excess water. I went on about 5 message boards that came up on the search and many women report seeing a 4-10 lb gain on the scale right before their periods. I had no idea. I felt like I should have seen a 1-2 lb loss this week so I’m blaming it on Aunt Flow.
Kerry finally saw the scale move in a very big way. She spent the past 2 weekends in Disney with her kids. I believe cupcakes and caramel apples were a daily indulgence. So this past week she got back on track and also was sick for a couple days and didn’t eat much.
Cindy has 2 more weeks left on her HCG diet. I’m trying to convince her to read Cinch and give it a try. She doesn’t feel she will get the results she wants like she’s been getting with HCG. I bet she would lose 10 lbs on the Fast Forward Phase.
