I have gained .5 kg over the past 2 days after a crazy drop of .9 kg the day before that. So over the past 3 days, I have still done well by losing .4 kg. However, 3 days in a row of gaining weight is not a good sign. It would be nice to at least break even today or hopefully lose a little.
My start was not so good. I rose to 78.3 kg after the first meal and rehydration from running. I did drink quite a bit of water. So a good portion of this initial weight gain was from the water. But that’s still not a great start. I’ll have to slow it down now. Yesterday, I topped out at 79.0 kg. That’s a bit too much.
At 5:30 in the afternoon, I was 78.5 kg. That is 1.7 kg over the day’s starting weight of 76.8. We are getting close to that 2.0 Danger Zone. But I should be okay with just one more small meal of about .2 kg. And I will eat that at about 6 in the evening.
Well, I have now done it 2 days in a row. I rose to 79.2 kg, which amounted to a 2.4 kg increase. That is the exact same amount of increase as yesterday. But yet again, I see no reason to complain about it. It seemed like the right amount. I had to keep eating a little more because my body felt the need.
This may just be a temporary thing. But if this trend continues, I will not be able to continue with 60-minute workouts. It won’t be enough. At any rate, it is probably due to the fact that I maxed out at only 1.3 kg right before this downswing. Maybe my body is just readjusting to a more appropriate level of food intake. And while water is obviously a good thing overall, it can cause a temporary weight gain. I have definitely drunk more water the past couple of days.
By 6:30 in the morning, I had dropped to 78.2 kg. That 1.0 kg drop from 79.2 occurred in roughly 12 hours. It’s a similar drop to what occurred yesterday. I weighed .3 kg more when waking up today, but that wakeup time was a little earlier. So it’s all pretty close. I do have about 6 hours before the official weigh-in. So all is not lost yet. It depends on whether my weight keeps dropping naturally over that period of time.
I had a pretty low drop to 77.8 by 12 noon. And my run was around average, with a loss of .8 kg. That gave me a final daily weigh-in of 77.0 kg. Just like yesterday, I gained .2 kg when rising to a max of 2.4 kg throughout the day. That 2.4 must come down, or I am destined to keep gaining weight.
