Is this normal?

I just became soda free about a week ago. Well, last night I weighed myself and I weighed a couple pounds more than usual...WTHeck???? Even though I feel like I've lost a couple of pounds. So my question it normal to first gain a pound or two then lose? I don't feel as bloated either, but the scale says different, LOL

  • It could be something as simple as a full bladder or your bowels are full.

  • Just give it time. Going soda free is a wonderful way to loose weight. Before I got married I gave up soda and the weight just melted off, I lost 4 dress sizes before I got married and pregnant and I was told to stop loosing weight.

  • Your body may be adjusting. Keep off the soda, like you're doing. Are you substituting the sugar with something else? Give it more time. Great decision, keep it up!! =)

  • Depends what time of the day you weighed yourself OR what you ate over the week to compensate for those blood sugar dips you'll have had since coming off the soda. It'll level out. Keep going! x

  • Yeah just keep with it. Our body weight can vary up to 8 pounds in ONE DAY! Giving up the sugary soda is a start, but you aren't going to see immediate results from that alone.

  • Yes, bowels can have something to do with it, your weight is said two decrease and increase by two pounds daily. If you feel good, then don't pay attention to what the scale saids so much.
    good luck!
