Yesterday's menu:

D: teriyaki chicken and cabbage, an apple

I was pretty surprised to see a gain this morning until I realized what I ate for dinner last night. I made some of my teriyaki marinade that has a soy sauce base and instead of using it as a marinade, I used it as a seasoning sauce for my cabbage. I knew it tasted really salty while I was eating it, but since it was late, I was hungry, & I didn't feel like cooking again... I just went ahead and ate it, not thinking how that salt would affect me. Well, at least I know what the cause was. So today I decided to eat cucumbers, celery, coffee (all natural diuretics) & put absolutely no salt on my food as well as get in plenty of water... take THAT water weight!! Hopefully my little plan works...

Until tomorrow then
