I did SS about 8 years ago and did not have any results until the 8th week (frustrating for sure), but after that I lost 26 lbs I then stopped. I am back on it again, not cheating AT ALL, and gained about 1 1/2 lbs. I am dumbfounded! What the heck is going on??? Is it age, menopause, or what. I just don't get it. I don't want to give up, but seeing the scale creep in the direction I wish to avoid is killing my self esteem. Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong?
No sugars, funky foods, caffeine, or chocolate of any kind. I do, however, use splenda, but only 2 or 3 packets a day. Should I stop? Helllllp meeeeee.
