When you skip meals your metabolism slows down, and you are not burning calories like you should. Your body thinks that you are starving so when you eat again, your body stores away more than usual resulting in more fat.
Throw away the scale, she is a liar! Let mirrors, clothes and your feelings reflect your progress.
