Weigh In 7-22-13: Really?!?!

Starting Over Weight: 182
Last Week: 179
This Week: 183.5
Change: +4.5

What the what?!?!?  First...I'm fairly certain given how I did this week that this is a mathematical impossibility.  I was spot on with my choices Mon-Fri.  Saturday brought a lot of alcohol and an single scoop ice cream cone.  Sunday brought a couple breakfast potatoes, a dinner roll and little fried cheese goodness (but not lots of it).  You cannot tell me that I went that batshit crazy!  I'd have to consumer an extra 15,750 calories to gain that!  It's impossible!  And I know it's impossible.  I know I'm retaining water because I'm dehydrated.  I know all of this and yet I still feel frustration.  I hate not seeing good work rewarded on the scale.  But here's what else I know.  I know I'm feeling better.  I know that when I do eat something fried, my body almost immediately rejects it.  It's remember how good it feels to eat healthy so wtf is the problem here?!?!?

Anyway, I shall not be deterred.  It's Monday and it's back to stricter eating and working out.  I know I'm doing the right things.  OK...OK...the drinking part not so much but there are going to be weekends like that.  The scale will catch up.  I just need to keep keeping on.'s coffee, grapefruit for breakfast, hummus and... I'm not sure yet for lunch, meatloaf with mashed cauliflower for breakfast.  Working out once Hubby's home.  I WILL not fail...regardless of what the scale says.  I FEEL better, healthier and that's what matters most.

My sentiments exactly...

Dehydration is a definite issue with the scale - I can gain up to 3 or 4 pounds when dehydrated even if I've been 100% on plan! I often gain over the weekend, too, but I try to minimize it and make sure I am still on a downward trend generally (so I might weigh more on Monday than on Friday, but still weigh less than the Monday previously!). Keep at it - you're doing good work :D
