Monday After Easter

Well sadly I am up 2 pounds, but Im pretty sure that it is TOM and a result of yesterday. I had a wonderful easter, and ate on plan, but I know the fact that I was eating heavier starches is playing into my weighin.

I saved both of my starches for the meal, and had some salad, ham, and one serv of mashed potatoes. Then for dessert I had angel food cake with fresh strawberries. So I think I did really well, but I know that my choices of starches are lot heavier than usual, like the mashed potatoes. I also forgot to put a meal replacement shake in the fridge last night so I didnt have that for breakfast as usual and Im sure the lack of soy that I usually get from those didnt move things out as fast as usual if you get my drift.

So we will see where I am at on Wed. Not happy that I am up, but I know its not "real" and that I will be back down. I enjoyed myself and was glad I could enjoy the meal. I wore some new clothes and felt really good about myself. Got a few compliments on how I looked and my hair, so it was a nice day.

You're doing great! I think everyone's scales are up today. Mine told me I gained THREE pounds! I decided to not listen :)

Holly said...

Hey I'm still waiting for a pic of your new hair! And don't worry, your gain will be gone in no time. Glad you had a nice Easter! :)

I wouldn't worry too much about those 2 pounds. I'm sure the salty ham had something to do with that.

I agree with Holly... we want pics! hehe

It is expected when TOM comes around to be up a few pounds temporarily! Don't let it get you down!! ;) I'm up a few pounds as well because TOM is here too lol.

Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday, Heather. Can't wait to see your new hair, which I bet looked awesome in your new clothes.

Have a great week!

Ditto ditto ditto what everyone else has said...

Of course numbers go up on the days after holidays...(even when we behave ourselves). It's going to come right off again, because you're kicking butt! :)

You will see a slight water weight gain, especially if you had ham (so so tasty and salty).

I have been away on Spring Break and missed your new hair cut post - so I'm off to read it.

Have a great day.

I agree, those aren't real weight gains. I though I'd be up because I've been sick but instead was down.

Those scales can really give us a run for the money. Darn that TOM!

I can't wait to see photos of your new hair (and slimmer face) You are doing such a fabulous job!!

The scale is just messing with you - don't think twice about it.

It sounds like you had a great Easter - I'm glad.

Nothing much girl, not compared to what you have lost and you know - next week they will be gone!
