carb retention much?

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I almost thought I'd gained 2kg - now I know better. Argh what a confusing week!

I'm actually 65.4kgs right now - checked again and the stats match the ones with 38-28-38.

I put it down to carb retention and not drinking enough water, though I had the impression I was.

Anyhow, I'm glad I hadn't put on 2kgs - 1kg I can live with.

I've upped my strength training - ow, what sore muscles I have! But it feels good and I feel great!

I didn't know water retention could add so many inches all over too! Wow!

I'm back to eating normally and exercising. Can say I missed it a lot - feel so much lighter and refreshed living this way.

I didn't think I'd ever say I missed weight loss/maintenance mode, but there you are!

It's addictive once you get into it. I love sparkpeople and I love feeling the way I do after eating something I've put together by being imaginative and creative, rather than ordering in junk food.

    You might also start noticing gains because of gains in muscle mass! Which is so GOOD! emoticon

    Yes, carbs from grains and sugar make me retain at least 2 lbs of water overnight!
