Why does food that you love have to hate you back?????

Sunday I went to a chinese restaurant and should have known better. I had a very small bowl (maybe 1/2 cup) of peking soup and they had mongolian barbecue so I picked veggies and shrimp, salmon and crab meat and had the guy cook it up with a garlic sauce. I didn't eat the whole thing but it was sooooo good. Logged my day's food in, was within my calorie restriction..wohoo right? Got on the scale Monday morning...BAM two pound gain. Sighhhh. Can I NEVER eat chinese food again?
Last week I went to a chinese restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday, and gained 2.5 lbs that took me all week to get off. And now I'm back THERE again. So frustrating. I drink at least 10 glasses of water/diet green tea a day and that doesn't include the caffeinated stuff and it will still take me all week to get the water weight off. Ugh!!!
I know, I know, I should stay away from the stuff. And will try to get it down to once a month or less. Not too many restaurant choices around here and lots of birthday celebrations LOL.
So I shouldn't complain. The good thing is that when I FINALLY got rid of the water weight I was also down a pound from my pre-chinese food weigh in. So I'm losing real weight along with the water retention.
Maybe they use MSG in their food and that is what is making me retain all this water??? Good possibility. Just need to stay away... so weak though... sighhhhhh
