Easy come Easy go

I gained 7 pounds in 7 days while on vacation. That part was super easy.
Ok, so the "easy go" part is a big ole fat lie.

It has not been easy...but, I lost those 7 pounds in the past 7 days.

Ok, the first 4 pounds were pretty easy...all I had to do was pee...and poop....a lot. Apparently it is important that I take my Lasix (fluid pill) every day. I didn't take it while I was at the beach and I guess all that salt (and just maybe a little alcohol) made me have a little water retention. As far as the pooping part...I told body goes on lockdown as soon as I leave town.

Those last 3 pounds took a little more work. I got back on track drinking my water. I logged on MFP every day. I swam laps in the pool every day. I didn't indulge in fried foods, sugary drinks, alcohol, or bread.

Today, after seeing those 7 pounds gone again, I am very thankful for my band. In the past I would have seen that 7 pound gain and just said "oh well, I blew it"....but this time, I knew I could get right back on track.

Hope all of y'all have a fab Father's Day!!!

Wow ... congrats on the loss! I'm having my surgery in 10 days. I'm just over the moon excited.

COngrats on getting that 7 to disappear, you are right it was not a real gain at all, just water.

Isn't that great to understand, so you can just get right back at doing all the right things?
