Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Weekly Weigh In — Up 3 Pounds

I'm up 3 pounds this week. Not great, but not unexpected after eating lots of carbs while sick.

I’m up 3 pounds this week. Not great, but not unexpected after eating lots of carbs while sick.

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve gained 3 pounds. Those misgivings about eating lots of carb-laden soups and soft breads during my strep throat were well-founded. I also ate out a lot this past week — probably because I was cooped-up in the house for 7 days. While I ate the best low-carb friendly foods on the menu, I always do better on the scale when I make my own meals.

It doesn’t help that I’m sore from resuming my lower body workouts. Sore muscles mean water retention. Hopefully I’ll lose the water by next week’s weigh-in along with a few pounds.

While I’m not happy about gaining weight, I’m not freaking out either. I had a great physical and am no longer taking my blood pressure medication. I know I’m on the right path. I just have to keep chugging along.

  1. That is awesome that you aren’t freaking out and that you know exactly why those pounds were gained. I’m sure they will come off more quickly since they are related to water retention mostly.

    • Thanks. I think not having to take blood pressure meds is the big reason for no freakout. I was worried during the week and felt bloated. But the news from my doc put me on cloud 9.
