Well, guess my weekend wasn't as fool proof as I thought! emoticon When I weighed in at WW this am (before breakfast) I was up .4 which means I weighed 128.6 instead of 128.2 like last Monday. No. that doesn't bother me. Our weight changes from day to day anyway by a little bit or a lot...depends on what you have eaten. Saturday I did pretty well at taking a teaspoon of what looked good to me at the church dinner. I did allow myself desert though. I figured I probably went into the weekly bonus points but I hadn't used any all week. Sunday us quite another story. But I'm still ok with what happened because I still had weekly bonus pts. left at the end of the night. Here's what happened. At the Ice cream social at church I had 2 small scoops of ice cream and no cake. Had some choc syrup, peanuts, strawberries and a little dab of ready whip. I brought some cake home for my hubby. He has have ice cream about 10 pm nightly and I let myself have it on Sunday nights as a treat. Well, he dished his out and brought me mine saying, "A serving is a cup, right?" And along side of it was half of his piece of cake he was sharing with me. Prior to that while watching the football game, he fixed some pop corn which I ate happily. But I only had a cup of it. So all in all this sounds like a disaster, but it wasn't really. Not with the 45 weekly bonus points. So did it contribute to my being up .4 this morning? I sincerely doubt it. It was just something that happened. I'm back on tract for a new week today and will be working out 6 days this week and we'll see what happens next Monday. I also have to remember that as I gain muscle, it weights more than fat. I could find myself gaining a little but then begin to lose fat again. All in due time....One day, one mouthful, one pound or one inch at a time...Slow and steady wins the race. emoticon Happy Monday to all.

    Elayne, I also think it was fluid retention. It'll go down again... don't worry. emoticon emoticon

    It's not that much... I also was surprised when I read various labels. Many ice-creams are 1/2 cup a serving and pasta is small too. For example my husband eats a plate of spaghetti which might be 4 servings. It's also tricky if the the servings are dry or cooked.

    For me when I want that stuff, I either eat less during another meal or do a little extra exercise.

    I think snacks are tricky. For example it's hard to eat only 1/4 -1/2 cup of trail mix or sesame sticks.

    You really didn't have a weight gain, Elayne. That small of an amount could have been fluid retention from the popcorn. I think you did just emoticon This is a new day and a new week! Keep up the good work!

    You have a great and smart attitude about your weight and the scale. I know so many people that get so upset with any little change. I weigh myself the last day of every month so I don't become obsessed with it and see my changes as living healthily. So good for you! emoticon

    You will lose that very quickly, I am sure. It could just be a little water retention. I bet that will be gone before you know it along with more. God bless your afternoon. Judi
