Last Thursday, I logged in at 2 lbs heavier than I was the week before. While this is not the optimal outcome, it is understandable. Too much eating and too little exercise over a period of a week can lead to weight gain.
Day-to-day, though, is another story.
After last weeks weigh-in, I actually started to drop weight. I thought, “Great. Maybe Thursday was the anomaly and I’m back on track.” However, I weighed myself today and compared it to yesterday – a mere 24 hours – and the scale told me I had gained 3.5 lbs. That’s a lot for one day. I didn’t really change my eating habits that much. I did have a kinda heavy dinner. Yes. I had two small cookies. I also ate a huge Gala apple and just a few slices of ham between two pieces of bread for lunch (no condiments) and some cinnamon grahams for snacking. Nothing totally out of the ordinary. Except, maybe, the dinner.
Still this should not account for a gain of 3.5 lbs. There is something else at work. Either a screwed up scale or I need to go in for colon cleansing or something.
Maybe I should just stop weighing myself day-to-day.
