This is common: It is common to have ups and downs with weight loss programs. Your weight may change from day to day. I would recommend you don't weigh yourself more often than once weekly to minimize normal fluctuations. Continue a healthy diet and regular exercise program and you will lose weight. One hint, keep a written log of all you eat. This will make you think about everything you eat. Will help you lose.

Hang in there: Losing weight is a frustrating proposition. In the beginning a lot of the lost weight is water, which comes out readily. After that it becomes a matter of sticking to the diet that you have chosen, trying to increase your exercising and be ready to accept a slow but steady result.
