11 pounds of water weight?!!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Last weekend I went to my mom's house for a belated birthday dinner. She insisted that I have some of her brazilian fish. And I couldn't help myself from having double helpings for just this once. It was amazing by the way- But when I got home on Monday I stepped on the scale to see I had gained everything I had lost for the last 3 months. 11 pounds! Needless to say I was so upset. My sweet husband just kept telling me it was impossible to gain that much on a weekend and plus I was just getting over TTOM.

So I just kept doing what I was doing and trying not to let the weight gain discourage me. So for the first 4 days my weight was not budging then Strangely these last 2 days I lost 10lbs of apparently water weight. 5 pounds each day- it was very strange. I just wanted to share this with anyone who is banging their head on the wall because of a sudden and huge weight gain in a short amount of time. Just Stay on the path and the fog will eventually clear.

    This has not happened to me but I have known people who have gone through the same thing.

Glad it came off for you, the trick is to NOT give up.

    My goodness. That is horrible. I would never have guessed so much could be gained in water either. I'm so glad that it came back off.

  This has happened to me a few times. The first time it happened I gained 7 pounds overnight. I really thought I was gonna throw up right then and Then I started noticing a pattern. Salt is an evil, evil thing and will make your scale go up. It will eventually come back down but this is a good indicator that your body is telling you you've eaten too much salt. And of course the dreaded menstrual cycle. I always gain a few pounds the week of and those suckers won't fall back off until after I am almost done.
Congrats on your loss!

    I would say it was the scale but since it lasted days I don't know. Glad you lost it again though. It is strange.
