This is the first weight I’ve gotten I don’t understand. Looking back over the week, I don’t see where I went badly wrong. I exercised a bit more, drank enough water, and kept my calories within my range (yes, there was more candy than usual, but I didn’t pig out). On top of that, my clothes are fitting a bit looser than they were a few weeks ago. So I don’t know if my weight has truly gone up or if there is a problem with the scale. I guess I’ll see next week.
