Don't Panic

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Don't panic -- track! I knew I had overeatten on Monday eve. Because I tracked I knew it was about 700 calories over and I would have about 1/4 pound to lose. But Tuesday morning I was up more than 3 pounds. I figured it was sodium. Wasn't too worried. But Wednesday morning I was still up over 3 pounds and I'd done so well on Tuesday. Hmmm. I felt persecuted -- like I was being punished for something I hadn't done or more like being punished excessively for a minor infraction.

Well, this morning there it was - 132.4, only 6 tenths of a pound over what I was Monday morning. Don't panic. Just keep on keeping on. Eventually the scale will reward your effort. Okay now. If I stay at the low end of my calorie range or just under, that 6 tenths will be gone in no time!

    Don't panic! Remember that you rode 11 miles yesterday too. You are in the process of changing to muscle which weighs more than fat. Initially I always gain during this process. Then, suddenly your weight will drop back again. Your weight can fluctuate as much as 3-5 pounds in one day depending upon how much sodium you eat. Sometimes upping your calories every once in a while will actually help you lose in the long run so don't worry. You are doing a great job! Keep up the good work!

    That happens to me all the time. It's part of maintenance, but can be frustrating. I'm getting used to it.

    I would go nuts if I weighed every day. No more than every two weeks for me and I'm trying to get to once a month.
