    Thank you all for the advice, and tarheelgrl u are right I do think sum of it had something to do w/weighing n the evening. Unfortunately I cant get to their office till the evening (at least for now) so I may weigh myself n the a.m. I was like, "No im not thinkn Im gettn cute and Im not" :blabla:

    The scale can flucatuate & drive you batty. I suggest that you don't weigh until after TOM. Can you also change the time that you weigh in at the doctors? I think that most of us weigh more in the evenings.

    I too get discouraged. I have only been on Phen for 2 weeks today. I lost 9 poouds the 1st week. Gained back 2llbs and today the scale showed a total of 10 lbs. I guess that is good, but I think I expected more.

    With TOM being so close my guess it that is the reason your scale is off. Don't sweat it. Try to stay away from the scale until TOM has been gone for a few days. Most importantly do not get discouraged.

    Unhappy Confused and Discouraged

    Ok, at first I was going to keep this to myself, then I thought okay that's what we r here for in the forum to share our ups and downs so here goes. The last time I weighed I had lost a total of 10lbs. That was on 7/3. Now I know I wasn't the best over the 4th weekend but I got right back on it Monday. Yesterday I went to doc for my phenD and their scale said I only lost 4lbs in one month. I was like what? That cant be. Now TOM will start on Monday and I did go around 5pm and was on a water pill yesterday. So I didnt know if that was a factor, which the nurse said it probably was.

    Well this morning when I got to work I went and got on a scale (I work at a med school so scales all over) and it showed me at a 9lbs loss from where I originally started. So I am confused and maybe discouraged because I dont know if I have really lost what I thought.
    I went straight to Walmart and bought slimfast and fish and veggies because I know I have been eating salad but a lil of what I make the kiddos at nite, so I can see y I havent lost anymore. I also started dancing to music videos for an hour and I sweated more than I did on Taebo cardio.
    I am definately kicken up a noch but I am still wondering about the scale reading. What do you all think?
