Good day all,
I've spent this week weighing myself now and then. The previous 8 weeks I was just doing it weekly. I'm not going to do that again because its been an emotional roller coaster.
36 hours after last Monday's weigh-in I weighed 0.8kg more without doing anything differently and since then my weight has gone up and down during the week. I guess I knew that it did but it seems quite dramatic.
The bit I would like someone to hopefully explain is this... yesterday evening I weighed 78.0kg which was the same as last week's weigh in (so I felt deflated). However, I was still quite a way from my daily calorie limit and I forced down a chunk of greengage crumble that bloated me out (I haven't been eating once to the "feel bloated stage"). I was scared of doing this as I couldn't see how I would weigh less in the morning as I was adding to my already "wrong" weight.
I weigh myself this morning and I'm 77.4kg. ???????. Whilst asleep I've lost 0.6kg plus the weight of the crumble. I'm guessing its all fluid but that seems so much. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't be happier (really happy) but I'm definitely going back to weighing myself weekly.
ps. I've got two identical digital scales (overkill... I know) and they concur with each other.
