Weight Fluctuations

After the jubilation of being under 125 pounds last week (124.6 pounds), this morning the scale read 126. I was off my usual vegan until dinner routine while I was away this week which may be one reason for the spike, but I'm not really all that concerned at this point.

Weight does fluctuate a bit for reasons having to nothing to do with actual weight gain. I could be retaining a bit more water, or have more "waste" in my colon (I haven't been as regular for the last few days).

I tend to be more concerned with the general direction the scale is heading in over time than day to day numbers. If I weight myself every day, it's not unusual if I'm up or down a couple of pounds over the course of a week.

I do note, however, if a general reading between 125-127 pounds, starts to move upwards to 128-130 pounds.

Reaching a milestone, like being under 125 pounds, is also noted.

Still, I've always noticed that hitting new low points on the scale tend to be hard to maintain. It's almost as if I have to work hard to maintain that weight for a while so that my body "sets" to it.

Being that I was away with my daughter, I maybe did "enjoy" myself a bit too much.

And, now next week I head to the beach with my whole family for a week-long vacation.

Yep, losing weight after 45 is a bitch. A real bitch.
