Yes, definitely - bodies can feel overloaded with water, carbs, protein, anything. Your mind may even be playing tricks on you because of your feelings of guilt over what you thought was too much chicken.

Scales are fickle - even to the point of where on the floor it is.

And, yes, it does matter - keep moving forward. I have been through a very rough patch during the past 6 months, but since the beginning of the year, the one thing I had control over was my FOOD. Remember that - family can hurt you, other things can derail your life - finances, friends, you name it. "Getting over it" sounds a lot easier than it is.


But, you can control what you eat. You are a bright lady, you're continually reflecting, analyzing, wondering - so, I would suggest, take control of planning what goes in your mouth. If you feel like you need to take a mental break from the stress - go to your food tracker and figure out your meals for the next week. Treat your food tracker like a video game - do some what if scenarios. Maybe once you figure out your meals, then plop it into a grocery list for upcoming shopping. Maybe look up some recipes and add them to your food tracker (I know you don't cook much, but there might be a few things that interest you).

I find it relaxing to detach myself from what I am eating and plan what I WILL eat - I have fitnesss pal set up through the end of the week and will tweak as I go along. It also allows me to speculate my weight loss based on deficit.
Don't worry about momentary cheats or stumbles, focus on succeeding in the long run. Always keep your eye on the target and if you stumble, get back up and stay in the race.

What we weigh is the result of a meal, a day, a week, a month, a year of choices...

Psssst...Nothing tastes as good as ketosis feels!
