Aah, now that's better!
But I know it's only temporary vindication... next week will be water-weight hell again.
There were a couple of differentiating factors this week vs. last, which I'll have to track longer-term to see if they really made a difference.
1) The Flex points.
This week, I ate 15 of my Flex points, whereas in previous weeks I hadn't really been eating them. I wasn't opposed to eating them - I just wasn't eating enough during the day to need them, so it was either not use them or use them for the sake of it to eat crap.
This week, I ate more during the day, so had to dip into Flex points to have enough at supper/evening snack to keep me satisfied till bedtime.
2) The bananas.
Bananas are binding, and last week I ate too many of them (between the daily banana in the afternoon and the Hungry Girl Top Banana Bread I was eating most days for breakfast). As a result, when I weighed in last week, I was feeling a little, well, bound. Haha! This week, not... 'nuff said.
