I can back from vacation in August up about three pounds, which seemed about right. Since then I have gained another four pounds or so. September was a tough month and I didn't eat lite, at all. I continued to follow my normal plan of logging my food and exercising, but I was probably eating about 1,600 calories a day on average, which is a little more than I would need to eat to lose.
All of October was spent really working at it, but at the end of the month, I was still up. I weighed 158 at my last weigh in.
Usually when I am not satisfied with my weigh in, I can look at my habits and see why. It will be too many high-calorie coffee drinks or too many desserts or something obvious. I just looked at MFP and saw that I was about 600 calories under my goal for the current week, 900 under for the previous week and 1,100 under for the week before that.
Now, I do know that this time of the year is when I am more likely to gain weight. It has happened before and it usually starts with Summer vacation. The first time, I gained about 15 pounds, the second about six. I'm at seven or eight this time around. This is dangerous ground for me. I feel like my body isn't responding or I am delusional or something.
