I'm doing good, exercise and healthy diet. The scale continues to show higher numbers just the same. I wasn't too concerned when it crept to 3. It happens.
At four I was getting a little concerned. I attributed it to the sweats and socks I was wearing. The bathroom is much too cold in the morning to weigh in with skimpy clothing on. Not to mention doing new exercises involving previously underused muscles. Ok, that could account for a bit.
6 lbs up. This is concerning. Was it the meds I took? Did I remember to take my slippers off when I weighed? (every ounce counts, ha ha) I feel bloated and things aren't fitting right.
Yes I'm counting my veg and fruits. Yes I'm getting adequate fiber and plenty of water. Yes I'm in calorie range. Yes, I stay active every waking hour. I walk in place doing dishes for crying out loud. I even find myself mindlessly doing knee-ups when the political commercials come on.
Seasonal storage. I truly believe our bodies are designed so we store up for winter like any other animal. That, to me, would be refusal to let go of the weight, not gain.
Granted, I was off track for a few weeks but not overly so. I can see a few pounds to maybe 4.
Yesterday I showed a gain of 9 lbs, today it hit 10. Alarms are sounding.
This has not happened over several weeks. This is in about 2. I'm going to monitor. Come Tues I will get an official weigh and consultation with my doc.
***I will continue in healthy ways, even during this glitch***
