Please, I don't want to sabotage myself again...

I did something really stupid this past weekend and I'm really hating myself for it. And no, it wasn't eating the Texas sheet cake. :)

Sunday night I fixed a big bowl of air popped popcorn. Good, right? Well, not the way I fixed it. I usually spray it with butter flavored Pam and a little salt. But this time, I sprayed it with alot of Pam and a TON of salt. It was SOOO good!!! Just like I like it.

But now I'm retaining water!! I'm up 4 pounds!!!

I have been doing great other than that. I only had 22 points on Saturday and 21 points on Sunday, not counting the chocolate cake and popcorn. Those I put towards my 36 flex points. Yesterday and today, both 21 points. No salt at all. Just fresh fruits, whole grains, oils, dairy, and protein & fiber. I've been drinking a little extra water trying to flush the sodium out of my system, too.

I really hope the salt lets go of me soon. I don't want to carry these 4 pounds through the end of this week.

I've really set myself up for failure, you know? All I have is 4/10ths of a pound to my goal and I've brag all about how I'm GOING to do it this week. Ugh!! Why do I keep doing that to myself!!!???

Well, you know it's not 4 lbs of fat, only water. I'm thinking if you increase your water intake, you should be able to flush it out relatively quickly?

If you had eaten a lot of that Texas sheet cake and tons of regular popcorn smothered in butter, then it would seem you were self-sabotaging, but it doesn't sound like you were self-sabotaging with salt...but what do I know?

You are going to hit your goal! You are! And truly, if it is delayed by a couple of days, then so be it!

You will get there really, really soon :)

If it's just water weight, no need to stress. It is just a number on the scale not the true weight.

You still have a few more days - sometimes it takes longer than we expect. Try to drink as much water as you can. It helps!

You are still doing great... Why not try adding a little lemon to your water. The juice does wonders to detox and what not.
