Question How did this happen?

I have gone on a binge lately - stress, stress, stress. But anyway, I have been eating and drinking everything in site, and so today, because I can't let myself fall into this slump (it is very difficult to get out of it), I decided to weigh myself - and low and behold, I had only gained 2 pounds - I am back up to 177.5, but that is amazing that I did not put on more weight - especially since I have been doing this for almost three weeks now

What gives? Am I at a new set point? Is it the bowl movement attack that is giving me false readings? I probably had it, because the body is rebelling - lol

If you have been under stress your body could have been burning alot of calories. Our bodies go very hyper when we experience stress so that could be part of it. Did you continue to excersise whilst 'binging'? that can save you as well. Last christmas I went off my regular eating plan for about 3-4 weeks (all the functions!) and I only gained about 4 pounds as well. the body is a beautiful thing! If you have been 'dieting' and excersing for a little while, your body is at a pretty good fat burning stage, so going away from the norm for alittle while will not sabotoge you too bad! Kinda makes sense eh? Well, good luck getting back on your program. You can do it! Makes you see that piece of cake really won't kill us now doesn't it!!!!!
