Stress Bloat Panic

You know, when you have three days in a row of nice loss (almost 3 lbs in 3 days) and then go stagnant for a couple of days, that’s acceptable. But then to step on the scale day 4 after that big loss and you’re UP 3 lbs is just…disheartening.

I know it’s stress and, well, with stress I get a bit stopped up to say it nicely… I’ll drink my herbal tea and should be fine in a day or two, but I have got to say, seeing the scale UP just sends a streak of panic through me.

I run to my computer and get on My Fitness Pal to make sure the last two days were good days. I didn’t overeat, I didn’t eat anything bad…

Once the panic subsides, I realize it’s been a few days since I had a good movement. TMI? well, it’s common on this diet.

Last week was the week from hell, and even during that time the weight melted off. But it seems now that I’m slightly more relaxed and calm, everything tensed up.

Just a reminder not to panic over a little UP movement in the scale. It happens, and it’s NOT real weight gain. There’s something else causing it…
