I decided to try again in the morning and see if there would be a difference. I lost two pounds. 366...
I sat down and just stared at the wall. I went over the entire week. I ate Wendy's on Saturday and that wasn't too bad compared to what I expelled from hiking. Sunday we ate at a Chinese buffet, but I didn't gorge myself. Two plates and I was done. Monday was another fast food day but I didn't go out of control. At least I didn't think I did... Tuesday happened but it's impossible to gain 17 pounds in two days. That's 59,000 calories more than what I put out to gain that much weight.
Thursday a thought dawned on me. Water. The thought was inspired more by the feeling in my legs. Around my ankles the skin was tight and I had that tingling feeling on the top of my feet. I was retaining water. I thought back and I realized that Wednesday I didn't properly reacquaint my body with water after the heavy night Tuesday. Come to think of it, I didn't really drink water throughout the days at the canyon. Only during and immediately after hiking did I drink water. So this was a problem building. I propped my feet up after work and the pee came. Not immediately, but without drinking water I started getting the urge to go. Thursday night I hit the gym and after working out I stepped on the scale I had lost six more pounds. So then I'm down to 360. I took my measurements and besides my hips, all of my measurements had gone down in size which reassured me that I hadn't completely relapsed over the past week. I weighed myself on Friday and I'm down to 357 pounds. 11 pounds down over three days. I haven't stepped on a scale since. Partially cause I'm afraid what I'll see and partially because I don't want to become scale obsessed. I think tomorrow morning I'll I'll try again and then update the weight on the page to my current results because 368 looks very ugly. It's also pretty demotivating. I found myself wanting to eat more this week. It's been a bad week for me. I've been at or below the 2200 calorie goal but before I was consistently hitting 1600-1800. My goal this week is to get back to that standard so that I can continue to move at the pace that I have been.
That's all for now! I'm off to watch some FOOTBALL! (Thank God for the NFL) I'm still working on the second part of the GRAND adventure! That should be polished up and ready to go tomorrow sometime! With that said, I'm out!
Till the next episode!
