It's water weight, right? Mamavation Monday

Watch Lives ChangeHey everyone! I am so sorry I have been MIA. I visited the ER on Thursday night, and was diagnosed with Colitis and possibly Crohn's Diesase. Yikes. I have been pretty miserable since. Most days my body just would not allow me to eat at all. I have been keeping myself hydrated by drinking lots of water and drinking G2 Gatorade to keep my electrolytes in balance. In the midst of all this excitement, I was accepted into the Mamavation Sistahood!! I am so excited, and as soon as doc says, "GO!" I will be back on my weight loss path. Unfortunately my scale is being very ugly right now and is showing a 6 lb gain. I am hoping this is just water retention. There is NO possible way I gained 6 lbs of fat, I didn't eat enough food in this past week for that.

So my goal for this week is to get back into my regular, non-sick eating habits and start exercising again. Slow and steady wins the race, right?

If you ate ANY hospital food at all, I'm sure it was loaded with sodium, which would contribute to water retention too. Praying for a speedy recovery and a "go!" from your doctor!

It could be water retention, it could be your body was in starvation mode so it converted every calorie it got into fat because it was freaked out and scared.

Doesn't matter - you need to take care of your health and if you gain a few during because of what or how little you can come back from it when you have a plan to make sure your body is ready for a routine and regime it can handle.

I have faith in you :)
