I think my carbo loading of last week has caught up to me

Last week when I had to carbo load for a couple days and increase my calorie intake some I thought I got away with it. Today I think it caught up with me. No this was my bathroom scale and not the WII scale I use for my official weight but it shows me up about two lbs today. I am hoping its water weight as I tend to hold water during full moons (how weird is that?) and I hope it sheds quickly but it was discouraging lol.
So this am even thought I was already above my fitness minutes and my fitness calories for the week I hoofed it out for a walk :)
The weight is taking its sweet time thats for sure but I know part of it is when my porphyria rares its ugly head, or if my daughter has a week long hospital stay (twice in last six months) my eating suffers and my exercise for that matter, so that I have lost 22 (well 20 now lol) in 8 months isnt bad, it just isnt where I had hopped to be.
Not all is lost as my mother, who never has anything nice to say, actually said I didn't look so much like death warmed over and my health had to be improving, that my dark circles were better. I also ran into one of my volunteers and they told me I looked fabulous :)so like the engine that could (can you tell my volunteer job is with kids books) I will keep trudging along and saying "I think I can, I think I can, I know I can!"
