Day 9 LM - 117.7 (+3.3, +1 of LDW)

Yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyikes! I knew there'd be damage... I fully expected a 2 pound or so gain, but 3.3? Eeek. Well, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. I truly high carbed it yesterday, including bad carbs such as a caramel, peanut butter m&m, and 2 sesame candies. I'm sure that's not what caused the gain. I'm thinking the smoked (salty) salmon and the handful of cashews (salty) with wine at 11 at night caused the gain. :) I also went way over on the calories. That can be a good thing for the metabolism though. I'm still within my range despite the gain.

Today, however, WILL be a LOW carb day on my carb cycling! Eggs, chicken, fish, cheese, and LOTS of water and iced tea today!

Nothing much else to report. I've got to attack this house! It's a disaster.

I see many of you updated so I'm going to check y'all out!

You are right about the carb levelling. It will even out and at the same time be helpful in tricking your metabolism.

Also want to say thanks HH for your comments. Your support and knowing that you *get it* is of so much help to me. You understand exaclty where the reactions I had are coming from. I am able to move on now and having the undertanding from someone like yourself put it in perspective for me. Hugs to you and thanks for being you. Back to guzzling my water now!

I reread what I wrote you and realized I wrote that I was furious with you. I didn't mean I was furious at you, but that I'm with you and furious! :) I totally get it. *HUG*

Its the salt. I can assure you most of that is water weight. I'll just bet you that when you do the low carb day tomorrow, the following day you are going to see a very nice drop. Are you going to do high-carb, low-carb, then high-carb again? how does this work? How long will you cycle like this?

love you!

LD, :) I have NO idea what I'm doing!! :D I guess it depends on where my weight is. When I drop way low, I'll do high carb. When I zip up (like today), low carb. :)

Have I mentioned how grateful I am to have you as a friend?
