I normally have my weight bounce around in a 2 pound range (191-193) from day to day. Over the weekend, I was at the low end of the range (191.4)
Sunday was a gorgeous autumn day here in Philadelphia; my husband and I went out for a 16 mile ride with hills that used to feel hard, but were delightfully easier than we remembered.
Monday, I normally go to Fencing class -- but I had company and stayed home.
Tuesday, I normally go to the gym -- but I had company and stayed home.
Wednesday, I normally go to the gym -- but I had to catch up on all the chores that I didn't do Monday or Tuesday!
So, after 3 days without exercise, I got on the scale: 197.4
Same scale, same time of day, same clothes...
Before I started losing weight last year, I had been steady for about 2 years; but I remember times when it seemed like I just gained 10 pounds in a week or two, and it never came off.
All I can say is, this had *better* come off quickly; and no Halloween candy for me this year!
