Low Overnight Weight Loss Contributes to Daily Weight Gain Of .3 KG

Day 482

I felt demoralized for part of today but slightly relieved by the end of it. Ultimately, I gained .3 kg today. However, my run was reduced to 60 minutes instead of the max of 90. In addition, I did not even do a full run for the 60 minutes. Part of the workout session consisted of lunges.

It seemed like I was doing better on diet today, but something happened that was not expected. The day started out fine for diet, with a good (meaning small) increase of only 77.4 to 78.7 before the last meal.

After that, I did not weigh myself again at night. However, I did take a risk by drinking a coke. But it was only a traditional can coke of about .3 to .4 kg. That likely would not have hurt me too badly. But for some reason, I woke up and was shocked to still weigh 78.8 kg. So while I don’t have an actual figure on overnight weight loss this time, it seems like it was not more than about .5 kg. That was a major disappointment and frankly one of the worst results I have ever seen.

The only good thing going for me at the time of the 78.8 weigh-in is that I had 5 more hours to go until the final daily weigh-in. That time, which was to include a running session, gave me some chance to at least reduce the expected weight gain.

Worse yet, though, was the fact that my body was not in shape to run for 90 minutes. It was also raining outside, so the whole day continued to be a mess. I ultimately opted for a 60-minute workout and a had a decent loss of .7 kg for that amount of time. Oddly enough, I did not even run the whole time, so I was surprised to even lose that amount of weight. The lunges I did for close to half of the session would not be expected to promote much weight loss. However, since about half of the session was running (faster than average), there is no way to tell how much I lost from lunges and how much from the actual jogging.

The exercise got my weight down to 78.1, and going to the bathroom twice got that down further to 77.7, along with the additional time remaining between exercising and the final weigh-in. 77.7 as my final weight for the day, which was a gain of .3 kg. Considering that everything except diet seemed to go bad today, I was actually not feeling too bad about that result.

My body will hopefully feel up to the task of running 90 minutes tomorrow. I definitely need it to make up for today’s mess.
