I knew when I got on the scale Monday morning; the scale was going to go up. It went from 160 to 163 over the weekend. I was not worried. I knew I did not eat 3 pounds worth of extra food over the weekend. What happened was that I baked bread on Thursday night and I ate a little more of it than I should have. The extra bread caused me to retain water which increased my weight temporary.
This was one of the most valuable lessons I have learned this year. Do not let the small increments affect you. If you did not thing different to cause the increase, it will go away in a few days. If the weight is still there after about 3 weeks, it is time to adjust.
How do you deal with temporary increases in your weight?
