Just weighed in.Only a slight 18 lb weight gain.My first weight gain of any weigh-in in 2 years of doing this.Has been a rough month but not really sure why the gain,have not changed eating habit that much but I have taken in more sodium and a lot less water.One month left to turn it around.

Lost a few more pounds which is good.Should be able to start some lite exercise this month which should help me have a good month.I am shooting for 10 lbs this month and a good tan.
