>Damnit. Seriously. This is what derails me faster than anything.

I was feeling pretty good this morning. Went downstairs to check the scale. Um. A gain of 3 pounds??? Okay, yeah, yeah, I haven’t gained 3 pounds of fat. There’s no way I have consummed enough calories for that to have happened over the past few days. BUT damnit…this is supposed to be the anti-bloat diet…how am I retaining water??? Am I doing it wrong??? I’m following the rules…WTF?

Okay…deep breath.

Non-scale victories…

Be consistent…don’t give up…that “water weight” could drop off next week.

Go to yoga tonight.


What was my mantra? Look better, live better, feel better, be better.

The scale doesn’t mean crap…right?!
