Saturday, weigh in and a theory

It's Saturday , and our weigh in day. I think I should look at getting a picture of a screaming monkey to put with my weigh ins of late.

Me- GAIN 3.4 pounds. Yep, let us celebratethe incomprehensible way my body is working lately !!!
Hubby -GAIN 1.4
Son LOST 2.6 pounds -WHOOP WHOOP boy !!!

I have watched points, calories, carbs and all that. I have certainly got enough exercise ! So it is time to look at other theories. One, I may actually be getting a period. My last one was in September when the geese were leaving, they are returning and I think my ovaries are attracted to their flight patterns or something. Yeah, that's the ticket ! Two, I may be pregnant. I don't feel pregnant, but I have not had a period in a few months and I am gaining weight. It would be the ultimate irony that after 8 years of infertility and then conceeving under nearly home lab type conditions involving charts, tempurature readings and feats of engineering that in my old age I simply become pregnant just by having sex. It makes me laugh at the absurdity of it, but I think I will buy a test tomorrow to rule out that possibility. And then there is possibility three- I have become a magnet for at least some of the pounds shed by Team Angie. Let's face it. We work hard to get them off our bodies, they get off in normal cases, but they have to go somewhere ! Nothing in the universe ever really goes away, but instead changes energy. All these pounds shed by all of you great people has to go somewhere. Perhaps it is on my frame. It's gotta be one of the above. Either that or it is affirmation that I am just not eating enough ice cream and drinking enough booze like I speculated yesterday.

Well if it makes you feel better I gained more than you and hubby this week. However, today is a new day to start over. Have a great weekend.

I am sorry that you had a gain this week after all your hard work and healthy eating! My gain was due entirely to eating hershey's kisses, so I know who to blame!

I hope things work out better for you next week!

I am so baffled by this, I don't get it. You eat sooo well. I'm frustrated for you :(

I know you drink lots of water but I saw you drink 2 diet pops a day, have you tried not drinking them for a week? Did it make a difference?

I have tried giving up diet sodas, and it has absolutely no impact on my weight loss. Stimulating, ,isn't it ?
