The next day the scale was back up to 107.1 kg (236.12 lb)! I returned to normal eating Thursday but still wasn't drinking much water as we were over at the in-laws again waiting for family to arrive from Melbourne. Friday morning I weighed in at 107.6 kg (237.22 lb)! I was so worried because we did a second Christmas when they arrived with essentially the same foods, so I made the same choices. Everyone sat around drinking and munching Christmas treats 'til it was nearly dinner time, and I knew they would bring out the leftovers for dinner. So I made my excuses about needing to take the dog home to feed him and that I was tired and would probably stay home for a rest. I made my usual breakfast for dinner and was so happy to be back on my normal foods again. I also drank lots of water!
I was so worried this would be the first week I had a gain, despite not indulging in any treats. So you can imagine my delight at seeing 105.1 kg (231.71 lb) this morning! I usually take my official weigh-in on Sunday but I am so happy with this drop that I had to share it now.
So that's down 1.4 kg (3.09 lb) from last week, and 25.2 kg (55.56 lb) total in 19 weeks. Was it all the sodium and lack of water? The fact that we've been sitting around a lot and I haven't done much exercise this week? I don't know but I'm happy with today's weigh-in for sure. Hope you all had a good Christmas!
