Weight loss but gained inches


Full Member
I've just had my 10th weigh in and have lost another 5 lb.I've now lost 53 lbs in 10 weeks which i'm sooo pleased about.
But this week i've actually gained weight around my waist.Has any one else experienced this and does it come back of quickly.It is my totm so thinking it must be water retention.
Any ideas ??

Hi Poppy,
Congratulations on your amazing weight loss. The added inches are bound to be water retention. I've never measured myself so have not had the problem of inches increasing. Water retention can really be the only answer.
How often do you get measured?

It sounds like totm - I normally gain 2 inches around my abdomen and a couple of pounds in water.
It always goes by the following week - so I tend not too worry too much.
Good luck with the fabulous weight losses - you're doing great. X
