Not sure WTH is going on

My low last week was 223.5, which obviously had me dancing nekkid in the streets. Okay, maybe not literally, but still.

So literally overnight, from Wednesday to Thursday, I was up to 228! WTF?? By Friday morning it was 231.5!!! DOUBLE WTF??? Other than the thought that MAYBE the marinade DH did in his steak and, later his chicken, had soy and the salt latched onto me, I haven't been eating badly! I don't feel I've over-carbed anything, the WORST thing I've had (and that's only been twice since Wednesday) is some Pringles low-fat chips, and this weekend I had some Thai soup which is seasoned with a particular sauce that probably has sodium... but if it's a salt thing, why is the weight still on me even as of this morning? I have NOT eaten anything that is eight pounds' worth of ANYthing. Nor do I feel I've overly under-eaten (except for Sunday when I worked in the yard all day and really didn't eat all that much considering the 3,000 calories I burned off!).

Okay, I'm at a total loss. At first I was just annoyed, but now I'm in alarm mode. WTF WTF WTF???

Another thought: Is THIS what happens after one comes off the pouch test? That I weigh more than I did when I started? :(


  1. My low last week, or maybe the week before, was 243 and I shot back up to 250! What?? I m slowly working it back off and am back down to 246 but man, it was frustrating!!!!!!

  2. Scale-watching sucks! As women, we have to really get a handle on the water weight thing. It makes such a difference and changes day-to-day or hour-to-hour depending on where we are in our cycles or what we have eaten. Beth, you're doing great. Hang in there and no more of hubby's marinades :)

  3. HAHAHA, so true.

    But I can say I haven't been getting on every day, and even took a few days' break to give myself a rest from watching it, but this morning I got on and only lost 3 of the 8! That's more than water weight... HAS to be. Which then begs the question, WTF?? :(

  4. I'm going through the same thing this week...sucks!

  5. It could be a couple of things. Personally, I think analog scales are much more accurate much more often than digital ones. Plus, if you've been exercising (working in the yard or whatever) you're building muscle. And muscle weighs more than fat. Go back to your measurements when you're feeling WTF. Just my 2 pence.
