It was with great relief this morning to see that the scale hadn’t increased from last week. Over the weekend I had a weird weight gain (seriously, how does one gain 3 lbs over night??) and then have been watching the scale inch back down since Saturday morning. Very, very odd. I’m blaming it on hormones.
Anyway, it was a good week over all–I didn’t feel deprived, I felt in control and I attended a swank wedding brunch with the best cheesecake I have ever tasted. It was so rich that *I* was content with 1/3 of a piece.
While I was getting my hair done last week, I read interesting article that talked about how excess calories can start to be stored as fat as soon as 4 hours after eating it!!! Can you believe it?? That once your glycogen store is topped off (what’s used for quick energy), anything excess is stored as fat. Eat an extra 500 calories every day for a week and that’s a pound!! That’s why I knew I hadn’t gained 3lbs from Friday morning to Saturday morning –10,500 extra calories in less than 24hours?? No way.
So now we are onto to week6. 6 weeks down, 6 1/2 lb gone. I’m happy with that!!
