Thank you Sparkfriends for your logical responses and calming words. After being down to 178.6, seeing 187.0 only a few days later was really a shock to my system.
But as you all said, it was a lot of bloat that is slowly coming off. This morning, I saw 181.2, down 3 pounds since yesterday morning's weigh in.
It's amazing that after almost 2 years of doing this, I still let the scale affect me mentally.
How many blogs have I written about my love-hate relationship with the scale, and how many of my sparkfriends have told me not to worry.
I knew yesterday looking in the mirror that I didn't actually gain 7 pounds. I could still see the difference in my face and pants. I just didn't like how close I was getting back to the 190s after almost a year there. But I'm almost back in the 170s and am going to fight to get there by next week.
Long story short, you, my Sparkfriends, are awesome. You keep me grounded and focused when I feel like I'm going crazy. And I really appreciate that.
