I stepped on the scale this morning and had to scold it for going the wrong way! The darn thing insisted on going up, when it's supposed to be going down! The audacity of it!!
Exclamation points aside, it has been very disheartening this past week, watching the weight gradually creep back on, after I've worked so hard to get it off. My diet hasn't changed much. I had a few bad days, but not enough to account for the gains like this. My exercise hasn't decreased significantly, although I am doing less intense workouts to accomodate my knee right now. What has changed is the medication I'm on.
The listed side effects of the medication include "May cause bloating and weight gain". What a terrible thing to prescribe to someone who's trying to lose weight! At least I'm only on it for two weeks. Hopefully I won't need another round of it after this one is done. I'm one week into the prescription, so one more week to go. I can hold out that long. But being up 3 lbs in one week is rather disheartening.
