Check-in Wednesday

Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansI did great with the fruits and veggies goal I spelled out in my last two posts until Sunday, but I struggled a little yesterday and Monday. They were busy days where what could be most easily grabbed out of the fridge or cupboard got eaten. Monday was particularly bad for veggies. (And for a bit of over-eating, I'll admit. But no bingeing!!) And that pesky TOM arrived yesterday, so I'm up a bit from Sunday's starting weight.

Okay, quite a bit, actually.

Alright, I'll be honest ~ I was shocked.

Let's just say, it was a lot of weight to gain in the mere 48 hours that separated Sunday's weigh-in from my regular weekly one yesterday morning. So, I'm not sure whether this is allowed or not, but I've decided I'm not recording a weight this week. It's so very obviously a water weight and next week's should be much more normal again.


This coming week will be a challenge as I'll be spending most of it at a campsite. And everyone knows camping means eating somewhat LESS healthy than when you're at home. (Just a little!) And lots LOTS of snacking. At least two of the suppers I've planned will include salad, and I'm bringing bags of oranges, carrot sticks, and fresh-picked green beans for snacking, but it will be hard to choose those things over chips and chocolate-covered granola bars!!

Wish me luck!

I hate those fluctuations, too. So frustrating when you know you are making decent choices but the scale decides to mess with you. Drink tons of water and it will be gone soon.

That happened to me last week! I think I gained 3 from silly old ToH! Don't let it get you down! Good job with fruits and veggies and good luck with camping!

Keep your chin up, girl. It will come off :)

You can make your own rules as far as recording weights -- that's the beauty of doing it on your own this time! :)

Good luck while camping. At least you're packing health stuff -- I don't even usually do THAT when going away!
