I wasn't expecting a loss this week.
But I certainly wasn't expecting a 3 lb gain, either.
This week has been a little spotty in terms of tracking. I have been watching what I've been eating, but not writing it down. Obviously this is still important for me to do! We spent the weekend at my Mom and Dad's house, where I did indulge in some lazing around on the couch and eating what I felt like.
But I'm not going to let this bother me - and here's why:
I ate dinner really late last night - much later than normal.
Dinner was pretty high in sodium.
I didn't drink a ton of water this week. Being stuck in a workshop with limited bathroom breaks isn't really conducive to chugging back litres of water.
I took my measurements again this morning and I lost 2 inches in total from various parts of me.
I'm not sure what's up with the scale, but this week I'm just going to ignore it and carry on. That's the problem with doing a weekly weigh-in, I think: it's so easy to get hung up on that number, to schedule my week around trying to see the biggest loss possible - eating less on Monday and Tuesday, and allowing myself 'treats' on Wednesday and Thursday, for example. To me, it feels like it's just not an accurate representation of the work I'm doing all the time!
