I went to get weighed in today, and I didn’t take my usual “precautions” – ie., I wore more clothing than usual. I didn’t go in empty – ie without breakfast. It’s a hormonal time. But I knew I wouldn’t be able to go this week, so I thought, I might as well.
WOW. I haven’t been up that much since before I began. THAT was sort of alarming. There are all sorts of explanations. If I hadn’t had breakfast, had worn my usual WI outfit, I’d probably be within the 2 lb range. My leader’s face was like, “Whoa.”
I’m not completely freaked or anything, but that was… not fun.
Yesterday I had an all-day training for this big work event. I was in a big rush. I’d ordered bagels and coffee and sandwiches for them. I didn’t bring my Own Food, I just ate what everyone else did. Including the cookie. (OOPS)
So. There IS an explanation.
Minor pity party as I once again mourn the fact that I can’t just eat what “everyone else” is eating. Ah well.
Second lesson of the week! (#1 was the rice) I think I can safely say I am ready to be done with these Lessons.

the horrible part about lessons, is that they keep coming back until you learn them. Think of it as an allergy, there are just some foods you can’t eat, because they cause weight gain.
I found a solution for my chocolate…I am allowed a piece of dark chocolate (yuk!) with 10 walnuts and a small handful of raisons after a brisk workout….at least it tastes like chocolate. It makes me workout…
Be creative, sometimes you have to

Well that just sucks! Of course, it should make it easier for you to drop some weight this week!

I’m confident that you will lose it all again this week! This was bound to happen some time or the other and now that it has, you can handle it. I know you will do beautifully!

That’s a bummer, why must there always be lessons to be learned? I think I’ve learned enough for a lifetime.

Yeah, lessons often suck while you are learning them. You’ll be back down to normal next weigh-in. You know what to do, and more importantly, you actually DO it!

Next week will be a better weight-inn I’m sure!
Hope you’ve enjoyed the food yesterday!

Don’t sweat it – I am sure its the clothes. At least that’s what I would tell myself if I had a gain at WI – that and “I just drank 20 ounces of water, that must be it!”
Hope you had a good weekend! 😀
