Water weight

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

It's so humid that my arms are sticking to the table as I type this blog. I'm dealing with water weight, but am losing in spite of it. Last week I gained 1.2 pounds and this week I lost 1.2 pounds. I almost didn't get on the scale at Weight watchers both weeks because of the bloating. Last week I was so grateful to have only gained such a little bit, and this week I'm so grateful to have lost the same little bit! I guess it's all relative. The best part of summer is the air conditioner, and mine is sitting on a chair in front of the window. What a downer!
I switched my food plan back to the "Points Plus" plan because my body needed a little shaking up. I can only eat on one plan for a while and then , not only do I get bored, but I stop losing. So that little switcheroo seems to work for me. I'm in it to win it over the long haul, so I have to keep boredom from setting in. It's the end result that counts.

    Patty,
    It's hot and humid here, too. I'm hoping it rains tonight but there's only a 30% chance. I take blood pressure meds and they help with the water retention. I also try to eat a lot of foods that help encourage your body to release fluids. I don't have the list or site I found it on handy, but I can try to find it if you want me to.
    I do know that eating watermelon actually helps me!
    Stay positive!

    Hope the switch up works and you start to lose again.
    This summer heat only lasts for a while and then before we know it we are looking for summer again.
    It's easy for me to say, for I am sitting in an air conditioned apartment.
    But my car doesn't have air, only the old fashioned kind, rolled down windows.
    Take care,stay positive.

    GIRL I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT THE HEAT, I TOO HAVE BEEN UP AND DOWN AND STUCK AT THE SAME WEIGHT FOR WEEKS, DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON, SO I CHANGED UP MY PLAN AS WELL. SO HOPEFULLY THIS SCALE WILL START MOVING DOWN.
    GOOD LUCK , LETS HOPE THIS WORKS ! emoticon

    Patty, it's great that you can be flexible with your WW plan so as to not get bored and excelerate your losing Weight again. I loved WW when I used to go but never had very much WL success--but that was years ago. . .Their new Plan sounds so much better than the old one I was on.

    Hugs,
