Oh those scales...

After our Thai meal on Friday we stepped on the scales on Saturday to find we were both a few pounds heavier. We didn't panic. Because we know roughly how many calories we've consumed, we know this gain hasn't come from eating too much. Two pounds in weight is equal to around 7000 calories - which we know we've not eaten. I've searched the internet and found plenty of people experience the same scenario after eating salty food. The water retention that follows is a temporary gain, and should disappear within a couple of days.
For us, being aware of our calorie intake gives us a much better picture of what should be going on with our weight. After standing on the scales again this morning, we can see we were right to ignore temporary fluctuations like this one which has all but disappeared.
