So, for "funsies" today, I decided to step on the scale... I gained some weight back. Only a few pounds (but more than a couple), but it's in the wrong direction. I think there are a few explanations. I really was super-strict right before my assessment and didn't it up to the same degree after. So, there probably is a component of water weight involved (maybe both extra lost for the assessment and gained now).
The funny thing is, I'm okay with it. Not stressing at all... I wanted to let you all know since so many of you were hopeful I'd have lost those extra 3lbs by Thanksgiving, but it's not meant to be. It'll come off eventually. I haven't really decided on my next goal... it is either 100lb down by Christmas or just not to have gained anything come my next assessment (which is conveniently right after New Years). I'm determined not to drive myself crazy stressing about my weight, especially over the holidays. I'm just going to be mindful not to undo all of the hard work I have accomplished so far!
Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys their short work week.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
