I weighed in at Weight Watchers on Wednesday and my weigh in showed a gain....
of 7 lbs!!
This was my reaction:
yeah....Even factoring in that I was probably wearing an extra lb or 2 in heavy clothing after a busy work day without being able to change into weigh in clothes- and I haven't weighed in for 2 weeks.....7 lbs is nuts.
I busted my tail while in Phoenix- with double workouts nearly every day and I did 2 strength training workouts during the week, including 2 ab ripper X from P90X! This is a great improvement over my lackluster strength training routine over the past couple months. Overall I did a good job with my food choices. I only had desert once a day, if that- and I tried to walk as much as possible when not sitting. Also, I was feeling thin all week- and kept hearing from everyone how great I looked. I can usually tell when I'm a few lbs over in the way my clothes feel- but not at all here!
I felt like I had literally been punched in the stomach. Quite literally, actually. I was nauseous all night that night- not sure if it's from the stress or those peanut butter M&Ms at my work meeting on Wednesday (yeah, I had some candy- but it was in moderation!)
I am trying to keep my head on straight this week, I'm doing a week of simply filling- which focuses on eating whole, clean foods. Something I already do, but with the simply filling program you only count points for the food that is NOT a power food. And power foods are foods I typically eat a lot of- fruits, veggies, lean protein, fat free dairy, whole grains, etc.
What do you do when you see something you weren't expecting on the scale?
