And it's why losers are told to weigh in weekly. It avoids the gasps and gags of the daily fluctuations. I weigh daily and write each weight on the top of the day in my calendar. I can check back over the months and years and see the REAL weight changes. The "up" creeps as slowly as the "down", but no one ever complained about the slow creep Up!

Have you considered weighing every day and averaging it once a week? Then it will take into account the fluctuations. It's how scientists actually come up with their measurements for many things. emoticon

Note to self "No Chinese b4 weigh in". You will be fine. As long as your keeping to your plan...the scale will catch up. Don't beat yourself up and move on. The strength training will def help you burn calories.

I agree. I have that problem not only with Chinese, but with ANY food I eat at a restaurant. Stay home and do your thing and you will pee it off.

I manage to weigh a couple pounds more throughout hot weather as my body tries to hold onto water so I can sweat, I guess. I know that if I am spending time in a very air conditioned place, like a restaurant or an airport (they're the coldest) or a movie theatre, I have to pee constantly. Then I go outside, heat up, and it all goes back on.

I weigh every day on maintenance (unlike when I was losing) but I can't let the daily scale burps affect me. As long as I am keeping to my plan, I'm fine. the scale with catch up.

Have faith! You're fine.

Sodium content of the Chinese food could easily pile on two pounds overnight. In maintenance we have to use the scale as simply a GPS, telling us where we are on a map. All we have to do is drive home if we get a little off base.

Yes, it is a head game... you see those couple of pounds, you navigate back to where you belong! Those two pounds will be history in just a couple of days!

I weighed in today and gained over 2 lbs this week. I have a feeling a lot of it was the Chinese food we ate for my son's birthday last night. I'm still under my "goal weight," but I guess in my head I set my "new goal weight" to what I was weighing. I have begun doing some weight training to tone up and my jeans are still fitting as usual, but it's still a bit of a "head game" when you see the scale go up a bit.

Have a great weekend all! emoticon
