How the scale can (almost) lead you astray...

I weighed myself on Thursday morning to see- 180.5. 
Fine, fine. weekly and daily fluctuations but I was sure it would go back to normal (normal right now is 179.5).
No sweat.  Not a problem. "See you tomorrow scale!"
Ran late on Friday and forgot to weigh in and instead weighed myself on monday morning.


In pounds.


There's not enough water a person can drink to make THAT number happen (oh its just water weight!). 
6 lbs in 3 days?? I better be 5 months pregnant (Jesus's baby, obviously).

Sure I  had movie popcorn with butter and chocolates on friday followed by a BBQ smorgasbord on saturday and then butter chicken sunday with friends but SIX POUNDS!!

One thing to say about pregnant women is that at least they're GUARANTEED to drop 10lbs in 9 months.  This last 20 is taking me forever! That's like 2 babies, wah!

How was I supposed to wedge my butt into my size 9 jeans with 6 extra pounds down there?

How was I supposed to wear the form fitting slinky dress/shirt over leggings when I had a muffin top to get rid of first?

How people, how???

Luckily, I didn't have to worry. In fact, everything is actually fitting BETTER than before. 

I don't know why, I don't understand it either and I sure as hell ain't gonna question it either. 
However, to be on the safe side, I'm still going to keep the healthy eating going till this Friday's OFFICIAL weigh in.


Oh and lunch today was this! 
Avocado, strawberries, poppyseed dressing, spring mix salad, carrots and cucumber.
Added two boiled eggs on the side (protein) and 3 cups air popped popcorn (fibre)
Yay to salads! we're best friends again. ;) ...for now.

Happy eating!

LOL!!! You are funny!!! The body can do some strange things sometimes. I'm glad the clothes are fitting better though and no wonder with those lovely salads you are feeding yourself. Yummy!!! Keep up the good fight.

Glad to have you as a new buddy!!!

@Silver, lol! Thanks. I'm working on the 'feeling' like I look great part first. the 'actual' is subject to opinion. But you gave me an idea though, i should add some more pics on here.

@Kas - agreed! If I can't lose any weight, the least I can do is not GAIN any either.

@Nona - I'm happy the clothes r fitting better too. Puts less pressure on me and I can worry a lil less about it. Nice to meet you too my dear! ;)
