Is It The Moon???

After glancing at a few blog updates, I'm feeling a little bit better about what the scale showed me this morning.  Let's just say it wasn't good.  Seems to have happened to several folks these past couple of days and for no apparent reason.  Is the moon in some kind of weird cycle that makes one gain weight???  I could have made some better choices yesterday, but did nothing that should have resulted in a two pound gain overnight.  That's three pounds in two days.  Yikes!   And I have no idea why - but I'm here to tell you, it hard not to feel discouraged.  The good news is that unless the trend continues tomorrow (heaven help!!), I will still show a slight loss for the week.  That's the beauty in weighing every day, but averaging the previous seven days and only paying attention the the average.  This method is what works for me and will lessen the pain of today's inexplicable gain. 

We had a really nice day visiting the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Park areas of eastern Kentucky.  We were smart and got a very early start so we could get our hiking in before it got unbearably hot.  The Red River Gorge area boasts over 100 natural arches claiming to have more than anywhere else in the world outside of Arches National Park.  We saw a few of them and would love to return.  This would be an incredibly beautiful area in the fall. 

We will head home early in the morning and although we've had a wonderful week in Lexington, we love our home and are always excited to return.  


  1. Sharon,
    Have you tried taking b-6/b-12. They help flush out water weight, which is probably what you have. There is no way you ate that many calories.

    Good luck,

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog and offering your words of encouragement. I like the moon thought...and am hoping it all goes back to normal soon. :)
