Week 71 (2.10)

Weight: 229.4

Weekly Weight gain: 8.2
Total weight lost: 139
Average Weekly Loss: 1.96

Yup.  I gained.  I gained a lot.  In about 12 days.  Now, really, I think that some portion is from my Vegas trip.  And actually, while I ate pretty dang well, it was all restaraunt food, which tends to be over-salted. 

Add to that the fact that in the 46 hours we were in Vegas, we only slept 5.  And we all know that a proper amout of sleep is essential to good weight loss.

And add to that the fact that I had to weigh myself right after I got home from a plane flight.

Yes, those were factors.  But I know I could have done a better job pushing myself.  And while the cartilege strain put a cramp in my goals, again, I know I could have done more.

And this week, I will.

I'm in the same boat! Gaining weight like it's going out of style! ;)

Yikes, that's a rough number to see on the scale. But you know why it's there and what to do so there's no need to panic. ;)

Hope this is a great week for you!

Boy, oh boy Beej, I feel for you. I had a big gain this week too. I bet we can both make up for this behavior this week though.

Oh no Beej, a cartilege strain? That doesn't sound good. I have a lot of blog catching up to do, but am sad to hear that you have an injury! :( Yes, you gained. But you will lose it just as quick as you gained it...of that I am sure. I have missed reading your blog and keeping up with you. I hope you've been well other than your strain. That sounds painful!!!

Yeah, you're all right. I was a little disappointed by the gain, but not worried. Does that make sense?

Yes, I was even tempted to fudge the numbers a bit, but no, it is what it is.
