My scale lied to me this morning

I hate it when it does that to me.  I’ve been really good at getting in my 10,000 steps every day, watching what I’ve been eating and soaking up that 64 ounces of water every day.  I feel waterlogged like a camel.  How did I go up a pound?  Ugh!  Back to the grind.

    Preach. I went to the lake, avoided snacking, walked up and down umpteen steps to the dock twice every day, and didn’t even gorge on Easter candy. My scale hates me.

    Anyhow a pound is not much muscles weigh more plus with all that water that’s probably why.

    It can actually only be a little bit of fluids or you are building muscles 😉 Just keep it up!

      I think it’s the gallon of water that I’m drinking every day.

    I fight this too. It’s frustrating. All Nick wanted to do was cuddle on the couch his last few months. He kept losing….I kept gaining. Bike it out and I’ll be riding it tonight!

    Scales can be tricky. I wouldn’t worry over a pound fluctuation. We retain water at different times for different reasons. If weight progression continues then adjustments may need to be made. Some people need to add calories if the have lost weight and are exercising more. Some have to cut calories, even for a short time if they plateau. I usually play with about 200-300 calories that I add or subtract as time goes by. Sometimes it’s just an add or subtract of 50 calories. Be careful you are eating enough. People make the mistake sometimes of cutting back too much.
