Default Annoyed…

Hi there, from January 4th until March 1st I lost 7 lb (140 lb to 133 lb) by zig zaging calories. Because I was constantly hungry, I decided to try intuitive eating and went off calorie counting. All March and April I was holding 133 lb, was not counting calories or carbs and was not hungry at all. I was a little upset that I didn’t loose any weight, but happy that I was maintaining with zero effort.

On May 1st I decided to go on low carb to lose last few stubborn pounds. I didn’t count carbs ether; just completely eliminate any sugar, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes and all fruits.

From May 1 to 21 I went down to 129 lb. I was so happy, you have no idea, I didn’t see 129 number on the scale for over the year.

Long weekend come along and I went to cottage with my husband. During 3 days I had 1 ice cream, 1 portion of fish & chips and maybe 20 potato chips, the rest was carb low food. I gained 6 lb in 3 days!!! I think its crazy…

Now I don’t know what to do…ether go back on low carb, but then again, does that mean that every time I have French fries I will end up with such a dramatic weight gain?
Or should I go back with calorie counting?

Any body had similar experience of switching between diets? And, is it normal to gain 6 lb in 3 days (I shed only 3 lb since, which is water, so I did gained 3 lb of fat)?
