I haven't weighed in with Tales From the Scales in two weeks. Two weeks ago I kept forgetting until later in the day -- and for me, probably for most of us, my weight is up then, so I didn't want to use that total! When I did weigh then, I was up four lbs. I don't remember what was going on last week and why I wasn't here, but I was down by one pound.
Today I am back where I was three weeks ago.
But both the gain and the loss weren't a result of any deliberate action. I thought the gain might have indicated That Time of the Month was coming -- I never know when it's coming any more -- it has been anywhere from 23 to 49 days in the last year. I have found through these weigh-ins that my weight is up then, but it hasn't come in that time period.
So, I don't know if the gains and losses were just fluctuations or what.
I do need to do better about tracking what I eat. I make note of what I eat in the mornings because that's when I am at the computer. But throughout the day I don't think about coming back to do that. I would guess that I am probably taking in more calories than I realize on those weeks when my weight is up.
