The good thing was that I did have a loss this week. The, um, less exciting part of it was that I lost .2 pounds to get to 153.2 pounds. I was hoping to be back to 153 and was annoyed that I wasn’t. From what I weighed at home, it should have been there. And, when I weighed in the reading sort of bounced around and then settled at 153.2 instead of 153.
I think the biggest part of it was that Friday I ate slightly higher carbs (98 versus 73 the day before). While net carbs where still only 75 grams, I know that the body has more water in it when you eat more carbs and releases them when you eat fewer carbs. So, that couple of pounds isn’t real weight. I think had I eaten Friday like I did Thursday then I probably would have weighed a little less Saturday.
Still, I want to focus on the fact that I had a great week and I was glad to have any loss.
Afterward, we had a family meal out to celebrate an occasion. We went to Red Lobster and what I ate ended up being higher calorie than I really thought it was. I did look it up, but the nutritional info I pulled up (from the Red Lobster web page) was lower than the information on another Red Lobster page of more recent date. Still, I should be fine for the rest of the week as a whole as long as I am careful for the next 6 days.
