at least I don't feel like a beach ball anymore

I gained 12lbs over the last 3 weeks! well actually I gained it the week before and the week of Christmas, I did't weigh in last week because of my schedule. I was so annoyed with myself because the week before Christmas I was eating the right things and I was went to the gym more and thought I was going to have a good week, then I went to my weight watchers meeting and I gained! I was so pissed that I don't even remember anything about the meeting. I do remember trying to figure out what I did wrong and the only thing I could think of was my body probably thought I was starving it. See I was on vacation and so I was not using an alarm clock so I slept later which means I ate breakfast later then I went to the gym never really ate anything for lunch because I wasn't hungry after working out and then a couple hours later I would eat dinner, I would still fill in the gaps with fruit and veggies but that I guess that wasn't enough. I was still not happy and apparently that reflected in my food choices the following week because I gained twice as much! The fact that the WW app on my phone was not cooperating like all week did not help me in the least. The day before Christmas I splurged for lunch, thought I did good on Christmas day and then weighed in the next day huge mistake. The last week I basically didn't follow points or anything I did pass on some things I know I shouldn't have but some other stuff I was not so good with. New Years eve the hubby and I threw everything out the window and pigged out, and then did it again New years day to get all the junk out of the house ;) I have behaved since then, even got the hubby to go to the gym with me on New years day and he did a challenge thing with me tonight so I think he is serious about this weight loss thing too. I didn't weigh in this week but I am optimistic about my meeting this thursday! Fingers crossed! Even if I do gain this week too at least I don't feel like a beach ball, I feel better that I am back on track. Although I hope this 12 lbs comes off as quick as it went on I know that it probably will not so I really hope that I am back to my pre-holiday weight before Valentine's day emoticon emoticon

I hope everyone has a Happy and Healthy 2015!!!!

    I don't know how much I fluctuate during the day I usually just weigh in Thursdays after work...the last 2x I weighed in it was morning so I am thinking I really did gain emoticon usually I drink at least 80 oz of water a dayso iI don't think that was it...I was thinking salt and a differed eating schedule probably had something to do with it :)

    i don't know about you, but my weight can fluctuate up to 8 pounds just by the time of day. I can weigh one thing in the morning, and same day weight 5 pounds more at night and not have gone over calories, etc. How much water you drink, not enough, you bloat, etc...so many factors.

    Sounds like you are back on track and that's the important thing. When we slip up we need to keep moving forward and not get down on ourselves when we make a mistake.

    Thanks! I weigh in on Thursdays so hopefully by this Thursday all the water weight and any other possible scenario will have passed and I will have lost all 12 lol...that would be a miracle but I would be happy as long as I see the scale goes down.

    It's always easier to put it on than to take it off, but it can be done.
