When leaving for vacation on this Alaskan cruise, I was concerned about gaining some of the weight back which I have worked hard to lose in the past six months. While on the cruise, I was pleased to see so many wonderful food choices. However, I did seem to be thirsty much of the time.
The result of mild dehydration was water retention and I did weigh-in at 11 pounds higher than when I left after the 10-day vacation. In the post linked below, I share that the morning after I returned already some of that weight was 'lost.' On Monday, more dropped. The scale continued to go down on Tuesday and even today.
So far I am back to 242.9 lbs which is only 1.7 lbs heavier than my lowest weight in the past month (or several years for that matter). I'll take it. If the most I gained after eating well (yes, I did enjoy cheesecake and plenty of tasty goodies) was 2 pounds, then I'd call this a success!!
Water weight is interesting. It can come on quickly, but it also goes away quickly. Folks who are watching their weight might get frustrated with the up-and-down, but this is one reason why you really should only weigh once a week under the same circumstances.
