    Need To Rant

    I just started Total Body Dumbbell Fix and I love it! I just need to rant with people who will understand. I'm trying to lose 20lbs I have stayed in my calorie range even on Thanksgiving day going out of my way to eat mindful, healthy, no seconds and using an 8 inch plate. I weighed today expecting to lose at least a pound and was shocked to find that I have gained two pounds. I'm frustrated and disgusted to say the least. I could have eaten junk food, seconds and sat in my chair to gain weight without working as hard as I did this past week. Thank you for listening rant over and back to working hard.

    Did you weigh everything that went on your plate? Doesn't really matter how big the plate was. Seeing a water weight increase after thanksgiving is not shocking at all. Carry on as usual unless it becomes a trend over several weeks, then you can reassess.

    "No seconds and an 8" plate" are meaningless if you have no idea of exactly how many calories were on it.

    How many grams of turkey? Dressing? Potatoes?

    How many calories per gram were the various dishes?

    For example; a 100g serving of "Mashed potatoes" could have essentially anywhere from about 100 calories (plain potatoes, steamed, mashed up + a dash of salt only) to 700+ calories depending upon just how much butter, cream, cheese, Etc. were added to the plain potatoes themselves.

    Adding to that the potential of variable water retention from multiple high sodium dishes and some degree of "weight" gain would all but be inevitable.

    You have no idea how weight loss really works. Its about a consistent calorie deficit OVER TIME, not about 1 meal, weight loss is not linear. Salt, carbs, etc all can result in water retention making the scale shoot up. As others have mentioned as well, its not about the portion sizes if you have no idea how many calories are on the plate, but regardless, 1 meal does not mean you gained 2 lbs of fat.

    This is what weight loss really looks like if you graphed it out.

    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    People who understand can see what a pile that is.

    Eating healthy sucks. If it were easy, we wouldn’t be fat. If you ate a typical 5k calorie thanksgiving meal, you would have probably gained a pound. So staying stagnant in the midst of temptation might not be bad.

    It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
