The trip continues.

Thursday, May 12, 2011

The trip is continuing. I have not had any sweets since Easter. I mean candy, cakes, ice cream or like that. I do have one tablespoon of honey a day. It keeps my allergies under control. I usually put it on my popcorn with a little cinnamon. I have been holding fluid this week for some reason. I may not be working out hard enough to sweat. I am watching my salt intake and cut back all the time. I gained four pounds this week. How? I ate the same calories, did the same exercise. I count all my calories. I guess I am holding fluid. I have lost 10 pounds overnight from fluid. Well I weigh on Thursday and I will just have to wait and see what next week brings. Its so weird. I will not lose anything one week and next week I'll lose five pounds. I know your weight fluctuates so I'm trying not to worry about it. I am eating healthy from now on and I know as long as I am counting my calories and exercising I will eventually lose this weight. I have made progress. Before I would get disgusted when I did not lose like thought I should and I would go off on a binge. I would get so hungry I could not stand it. Since I started this in April I have not done that. I understand my body is adjusting to my new life. No sugar is a biggie. My mind is clearer and I'm calmer. That is so nice.

    There are many reasons why we gain fluid. Sometimes it has to do with our period. Personally, I can gain five pounds in a week, I hate it. Sometimes it is things we eat.
That is one of the reasons why blogging is so awesome. Even just using the note portion on our daily nutrition. Soooo many reasons.

    Yeah, the scale definitely fluctuates for me too!

I'm glad you're having the honey. We need a certain amount of carbohydrates in a day, and the honey cinnamon popcorn sounds like a great idea!!!

I'm glad you're seeing the results too.
