Well, it was bound to happen, I had my first real gain this week: 2.2 lbs. They asked me if I was prepared for this, and the truth was, no, I am not.
I had a hell of a week. I got a minimum of 4 AP's every single day, which is their recommended number. Two days (Saturday and Thursday) I had way more than that. I was very strict with points, and stayed within my daily number every day.
So what happened?
Well, my speculations are these:
I had 3 weeks of really, really good losses. 4+ lbs. twice and nearly 2 pounds the other week. During those 3 weeks, my AP's were way down and I didn't track all that closely. I knew I was within range, so I didn't keep close track.
I'm guessing that this week is a bodily reaction to really "getting with the program". Kind of a hit-the-brakes type of thing from a very confused system which doesn't like radical change.
My other theory is that I've now been on the pill for 2 straight weeks and maybe it has something to do with that. I've come to this conclusion from Amy's blog about her experiences with her patches. If this turns out to be the case, I'm going to kiss the pill goodbye and go back to dealing with it. But I'll take a full course of it over the next 3 months to be sure.
So anyway, I'm going to continue to track carefully and do my 4 AP's per day and just keep at it as best I can and hope this week was a fluke. I thought I would be majorly bent out of shape about it, but I'm not. I was more upset by that .1 gain a few weeks ago.
