    finally moving back down from 8st 12 (124lbs)

    After a refined carb-fest I have finally managed to get back on the wagon. Even with a lovely guest for a long weekend I have managed to fight the temptation better than could in previous weeks since returning from the ski break. I am amazed how much fluid I hold when consuming refined carbs. Summer is here and I am looking forward to getting out on the bike more. Happy to be back on my cottage cheese, sliced meats , baby toms, lentils , veg. (very little cooking and washing up too!).

    odd weight gain

    I can't fully account for an overall gain of 5 lbs to 9st - 126 lbs this past two weeks. I lost a transient 3 lbs overnight due to flights and fluid retention digestion etc leaving effective jump from 8st 7 end of Feb - to - 8st 9 - 121lbs first of March an overall jump to last night the 9st-126lbs last night [every day i gain and lose 2 lbs fluid without exception] = 8st 12- 124lbs realistically a 3 lbs gain during this ski trip. Incidentally exactly the same as my husband. But a 5lbs overall gain from days before the trip Daily burn would predict with my conservative exersice log and generous food intake log a predicted loss of 4.6lbs. Obviously not the case here!!! Estimated 6 half days on the slopes (probably real time 1+ hrs per day of actual hard core real skiing). What are the options for an explanation ? Looking at my graph in detail there is a correlation over the past 2 weeks +, with a significant drop in protein in my diet, especially in French Switzerland where I had to reply on eggs/processed poultry slices for protein instead of cottage cheese and had to try to eat only lentils for carbs (difficult to do) . I'm afraid that bread/chocolate consumption crept up as hunger increased with exercise. I drank vodka at night and less than 1/4 bottle of beer. My clothes are not as tight as I would have expected but I feel bigger in the stomach area. I have more muscle tone and my cat callipers tell me ..... Can I assume that some of the 5 lbs come from muscle gain, fluid from muscle recovery (I really have to work hard at skiing as newish intermediate skier). At least 2 lbs come from weight gain over last few weeks with chronic horrible headache interfering with died and negating almost all exercise. Time will tell - I must wait and see now how easy it is to come off carbs from the holiday, and get back to a normal eating and exercise routine.... still battling the virus but headache abating. I would like to be back down to 8st 7 or 119lbs by the end of this week, losing only fat not muscle. Fed Up!!!
