25,000-29,999 SparkPoints 25,580


Sunday, January 17, 2010

Yesterday was the halfway point for my January Bootcamp and I was planning to weigh in and do my measurements today. When I stepped on the scale I discovered that my weight had gone up 2 pounds in less than 24 hours. Yep, I think the salt got me again!

I went out for a nice meal with my husband last night and I was quite proud of myself for managing to eat just enough of everything to satisfy my appetite and enjoy the taste. I did really well, but I forgot about my enemy. Sodium. One of my Spark friends recently pointed how much of it is in just about everything and I've been keeping an eye on my sodium intake ever since.

Today I've been trying to drink extra water and I'm hoping that the water retention will sort itself out in the next day or two. In the meantime I've decided to postpone my weigh in for a couple of days when I'm feeling less salty!

This week I'll make an effort to stay away from processed foods. Wish me luck!

    Oh yes! Sodium! It's in everything we eat at restaurants...

    My body definitely does not react well to salt, so I totally understand! Good job eating just to satisfaction - That's a big accomplishment!

    Ah, the old sodium nemesis. I don't know if there is any real science behind this trick, but it works for me. I eat watermelon along with the extra water when I am really puffy. And it seems to push the water out of the tissues well. Congrats on the Bootcamp!
    Have a great day.

    Yep! Salt is a hard one for me. I'll go along beautifully for a while, then BAM! So "I pick myself up and get back in the race". emoticon
