Welcome back, TraceyElaine!
I also decided to give myself a break during December. I didn't really plan to stop counting AND stop exercising, but that's kind of what happened. I was maintaining just fine for a couple of weeks, and then one morning--BOOM--I was up 5 pounds. I didn't worry because I was sure it was sodium. I mean, nobody really gains 5 pounds over night, right?
Well, the 5 pounds has been here for a good week now so yes, apparently you CAN gain it overnight! LOL. Anyway, I'm back on the wagon as well. Lucky for us, we caught it early, right? And we know what to do, so we just have to start doing that again.
