To get up and weigh 1.5 pounds more than yesterday after eating only 1000 calories yesterday. Yep, I know it was the low calorie but heavy in salt jarred jalapeņo peppers, the Light Newman's Sesame Ginger dressing, oh and not salt but sugar in the one cup of delicious green grapes. I never use a salt shaker and never put salt in my food....but just indulge in processed food and there is so much salt it makes a difference. I will continue to drink lots of water today and flush it out and get rid of it. I guess I just wanted more flavor to my food yesterday. I keep telling myself as well that it is just a number and not to let it ruin my day but this maintenance thing keeps me focused on that blasted number. I guess that is better than ignoring it and all of the sudden you are up 10 pounds with a real challenge a head. I know there are pros and cons to weighting daily but for me it just keeps me thinking about eating right each day when I start out weighing myself. the old me, by the way would have seen a 1.5 gain and given up and would go on a binge thinking it's not worth the efforts. Instead the stupid number just gives me more strength to adjust today's eating. Do any of you have such big fluctuations in weight when you think you are being "good"?
Hope all my buddies are doing just great today.
