Water Weight Gain

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

We have all heard of it and most of us have had it water weight gain. We get on the scale the morning after a wonderful Chinese food meal and there it is a rise in the numbers on the scale. I freak out and forget about water weight gain. I cry and I mope around all day and I think of what diet I have done in the past that has taken off weight. I did a liquid fast day yesterday so the scale is way down today. I drank a lot of low calorie or no calorie drinks yesterday and flushed out the retained water. The scale went from 178 to 172. I am happy to say the least. Today I am eating healthy and no Chinese food. Nothing against the Chinese I have high respect for them but man their food can make me retain water.

    For me, it's not the salt, it's the carbs - noodles, rice, sugar in the sauces. On my water fast days i add a pinch of Himalayan salt to every cup of water for the balanced minerals and then I get less headaches. I hate the scale any day - if it's down it's lying, if it's up I'm a failure :-/

    So much salt in Chinese food!! I've been looking into making my own, so that ALL that sodium is NOT in it. i do my own Mexican for that reason and love making my own mixes of spices.

    Oh today!! TODAY!!!! Hmm its so rare I go so far over my calories, but it was done knowinly. I mean like no one forced me to eat it ALL. SO GLAD our weigh isn't counting for the team. I NEED to get it back together!!
