Scale Won't Budge

I knew this would happen at some point, I was just hoping it wouldn't be so soon. After several very successful weeks of losing pounds, the scale has decided to declare a mutiny against me. It has been stuck at 268 for days. Trying not to be frustrated, and I know that it will start moving again, but boy it sure does suck right now. I know it can't be calorie intake, so it has to be water retention and that will subside.

On a positive note, I have been enjoying moving through the mushies stage and I am so ready to start "real" foods next week. Although I still have fears about the dreaded PB's and getting stuck as I continue to add more substantial foods. It's like a time bomb waiting to go off, you don't know how or when, but you know at some point in the future it will happen.


  1. I use a baby spoon and fork to eat with. It was my doctor's suggestion after my one and only Pb and has kept me with tiny bites. I have never had any more.

  2. That is a drag! I know it happened to me before my first fill. Hopefully the scale will move soon!

    I agree, small bites will help ward off the PBs.

  3. The scale WILL move (down). It really will! Eat small bites and chew well, as you know. But, I'd still expect a pb or two. Yesterday, I actually pb'ed UP (similar to throwing up)- for the VERY FIRST TIME (and I'm out over 8 mos)- don't know where THAT came from, but there it was. The band is still WAY worth it.
