    Apparently my adding two 1 hour rows (10K meters) is what I needed. I've dropped close to 7 pounds in one week. I can't do 1 hour KB snatch or LongCycle sessions nonstop often, though we DO that occasionally. My lifting sessions are usually 30 minutes (with breaks) and my body seems to need some slightly longer endurance sessions than that. 126 today

    Good job Catrin.

    I have now been back on track for a week and *may* have actually lost a pound- 121.9 today but I need to see the scale stay below 122 for a couple of days before I believe it.

    Discouraged. In the danger zone. Things that had no effect on my weight 2 weeks ago seem to be doing stuff now. This seems to be related to the end of the cycling season... while I am still do just as much exercise, I guess my body knows the difference.

    I've learned that stress or lack of sleep has just as much effect on my weight as what I eat. Right now am experiencing wild 5 lb swings from day to day which is a clear sign of increased inflammation from eating things I know my body is sensitive to. This causes good old water retention.

    Autoimmune conditions makes me more susceptible. I KNOW I will fall to some temptations over the holidays but I need to be more intentional about it. The sad thing is the amounts I've eaten of those foods have been very small.

    I am actually wondering if pre-menopause hormone swings cause random water weight gain. I've had various episodes of water retention that have lasted several weeks, with no changes in diet, sleep, etc. I have an appointment with the doctor this week and planned to ask him if it's possible.

    I've had a lot of sleep and no more stress than usual. But, I have been sick. Hoping that is it. I kind of lost my appetite when I saw the scale this morning!

    So, when I made my rule that I would get up and take a walk every time something annoys me at work, I did not plan for the scenario that something else would annoy me as soon as I got back to my desk after walking around.

    Looks like I will be getting plenty of indoor exercise today.

    I wish I could have that plan!

    For the 97th time I have explained that "drawing a conclusion" has nothing to do with drawing.

    Ha! That could be an interesting assignment for art students.

    I think I'm down about a pound.

    Just got confirmation from my doctor that the random bouts of water retention that add 3 or more pounds for 1-3 weeks are most likely caused by wacked-out hormones. (He also explained why a break in the hot flashes mean it's time to get the tampons ready, and told me that the 3D mammogram is worth doing despite the unseemly marketing efforts of the radiology place.)

    After Tuesday, my weight did go down to 107.6, which is a decent winter "normal," although I am still trying to get it back down to 106.5 on a more regular basis.

    I am not certain what I'm doing since I've only been cycling small distances to and from work this wk. ..after not cycling at all for 2 wks. prior. Have had some decadent pre-Christmas snacks, no big meals yet for last 3 wks. But definitely less activity.

    Just eating normal to me and making sure I eat before 7:00 pm. Probably stress and thinking about my dad (I'm right now back at home, thousands of km. away from parents' home city.) is burning extra fuel?? Now he's move into palliative care unit.

    I have not gained weight that is sticking yet.
