Glad you are feeling motivated. I always celebrate when I don't experience a gain when I am away or celebrating - seems it often happens even when I eat "normally". Changes in company, sleeping patterns, weather, bowel movements, sodium content of my foods, etc. all disrupt my weight. I am pretty mellow now about the whole thing and recognize that the weight I gain is NOT really ALL weight gains, but a whole host of other factors at work.

Like you NOT gaining, and especially losing - even a little - is a great motivator for me - I feel empowered and ready to kick butt for a while.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Hi SHAMPA2,

Know that our weight is not a static number. In other words, it can and will vary throughout the day, week and month--the reason, our body is made up of well over 50% water, therefore any change in your diet, hydration, workouts and even hormones can affect the number on the scale. Weight loss is a trend over a period of time, not just a single day.

It is quite possible that the 'weight gain' was probably fluid retention and/or maybe your bowels weren't working like they normally do. I can tell you from experience (o.k., I have a very inquisitive mind :-) that THAT weight can be even MORE than the 1kg.

Lucky you to be able to get away for a holiday - You obviously enjoyed it :-D

Last September I went on a holiday and gained 1 kg in four days. this time we were away for 5 days and lo, no weight gain, rather 200 gram lesser ! How could I manage this? I guess the mountain and the cold but sunny weather has done the wonder! I feel genuinely motivated today emoticon
