Stepped on the scale this AM and it slapped me in the face. 208.2 yep that much. I felt ill. Of course metaphorically ill I had been physically Ill in the days before. Friday had fever, chills, and aches in horrible quantities. Saturday, woke with a cluster headache and had to take nausea meds just to get that under control. Made some poor choices those days and yesterday. Up 10 pounds in those 3 days. I can blame it on water weight, or ill ness but it all boils down to personal accountability. So today I am doing a 5 day no refined anything challenge. I intend to make it through it, but if all else fails I will do my best and will at least feel better for it. Not liking the mirror right now. Need to fix myself and the mirror will follow.

    Yeah... I feel you. I just took 4 days to refocus and gained 11. I am back on now though and leaving no room in my mind for "ifs." We can do it! I'm sorry you were feeling so bad. Don't even think about it anymore, King_Slayer gave great advice!

    Don't you just hate it when you have a few days of being completely lax about your food and WHAM! it smacks you right in the kisser with a nice big gain? I know I hate it. I was quite upset when I came home from vacation and saw that I was up 12 lbs. If I hadn't walked so many miles each day I'm sure it would have been so much worse. But, we know what we need to do, so we get back into our groove and keep trying to do what we know is right. Eventually it all pays off.

    Best of luck with the no refined anything challenge. 5 days like that should make for a quick turn around in what the scale has to say!
