But it is what it is, and knowing that helped me understand one reason why I gained over the years. I ate pretty healthy (or what I considered to be heathy at the time...vegetarian) and only ate 'junk' once in a great while. But it was one step forward, two steps back every time I did. Now that I know, I may still make the choice, but far LESS often (and I rarely order the pasta or starch-based dishes these days) so it's two steps forward, one step back.
In any case, I expected a small loss. I ate hundreds of calories less than I burned yesterday, no sugar, no wine, no starch. I had tuna and 1/2 oz of cheese for lunch and 100 g. chicken breast with 1/2 oz of cheese for dinner. I had 1 tbsp. of organic, no sugar peanut butter before our walk, and I had sugar-free organic cocoa/coconut oil chocolate after. (Seriously, that is the best way to get your heart healthy coconut oil in!)
So yeah. I'm not sure what's up with that.
I am sore, still, from the hike up the hill and the weight training. And I'll have to get some more of that in today to continue progress. So it could be I built a little muscle or am retaining a little water in the repair process and that is offsetting what little loss I might have actually had. As the summer gets more active and I built more muscle, gauging just by the scale may not work. I may have to judge by how my clothes fit. I could take measurements I guess. I don't really care what my measurements are, as long as I fit into stuff I like and feel good in my skin, so I haven't.
