R3P3D11 Damn Scale From Hell!!

Round 3 Phase 3 Day 11
LIW: 161.4 04.02.08
Yesterday's Wt: 164.6
Today's Wt: 164.0
0.6 lbs LOSS from yesterday
2.6 lb OVER LIW

Okay, my scale was acting up again this morning. I stepped on it and it said 165.0, huh? Then I adjusted it and it said 161.8. Oh yeah, I just miraculously dropped nearly 4 pounds in a matter of seconds. I finally settled with the 164 since I really don't know what my weight is this morning. After I got home from work yesterday, I sat on the sofa and was ready to take a power nap. I sat upright, went and got dressed and went walking around the neighborhood. Since I forgot to bring my clothes with me, I had to go home to change and I almost didn't go walking. My normal routine of going around my neighborhood used to take me 30 minutes and yesterday the same route took me 20 minutes. I guess since I'm not lugging around the extra 30 pounds, it has gotten a lot easier. I don't feel pain in my shins as I walk like before. I did bring my clothes today so I should have no excuse except that it may be very windy by the time I leave work.

Yesterday's Menu:
B: coffee and 1/2 a glazed donut
L: South Beach Living roasted turkey w/brown rice and green beans
S: macadamian nuts, guacamole w/a few blue corn chips
D: 2 fried tilapia fillets and mexican squash sauteed in butter

Crystal, yes, I have missed you!!! Best of luck to ya restarting P2.

Becca, I can't do steak days and I completely forgot about the eggs!! I'll just hang on!!

Lili, I didn't think about the sodium but I am drinking lots of water. I knew I would probably gain but I'll just keep to walking and indulging less during the week, we'll see.

Biz, I agree with you completely, I'm sure there is a KFC in hell!! Luckily I didn't order any of the sides or I would have gained about 10 pounds!! I'll just take it with a grain of salt (or a ton) and settle down the rest of the week.

B, I took some B-Complex vitamins and that should help flush out any excess. I can only hope!!

I would have banged that sucker up against the wall and called it a day! ROFL

Do the dandelion tea or the capsules to help flush out that extra water.
