Unchecked baggage from my flight?

I missed my weigh-in Thursday so I did it this morning. I was up quite a bit. I'm hoping it's just water retention from my cross-country flight, because even though I had too many cookies, I don't think I had three pounds worth.

There is a temptation to try to prop up your flagging energy with sugar and caffeine at these training things, especially because it's so conveniently provided for you every few hours. Also, I was seriously craving salt.

It doesn't really matter. I need to start tracking again and paying more attention to my choices, so I am just recording the weight and moving on. I need to remind myself that recording my food in the WW tracker is really not that hard, I just have to take a few seconds and do it right after I eat instead of putting it off.


  1. The good news is that if it is water retention, it will be gone in no time. And, if it's the cookies, that could be gone in no time as well if you stay on track!

    Anyway, good for you on your weigh in. I have a very bad habit of skipping my meeting or using a No Weigh In Pass after coming back from a vacation.

  2. Welcome home :) I agree, it's so easy to grab sugar and caffeine when in a strange environment with scheduled breaks - and with cookies :) But it was a short trip, you're home and did your weigh in, and will be back on track in no time.

    Where do you do your tracking these days? I'm online all the time with work so it's easy for me to use the online version with a lot more consistency than I ever used the paper tracker.

  3. I came across your blog looking for inspiration a sucess story... I'm still on my journey but I'd love your support. Any tips you could provide that help motivate the unmotivated and silence the persistant voice of the inner chubby chick would be welcomed!

  4. I also think it's from the flight and probably not enough water and definitely probably a lack of sleep too.

    You deserve a lot of credit for stepping up on the scale right after a trip and seeing what's there. I hope you have a good time!
