Today, I will be attempting to lose weight for the 4th day in a row. The last 3 days are so good (lost 2.0 kg) that I would be happy with any amount of weight loss and would not even be all that upset with a breakeven result or slight weight gain. However, because I will not be running on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday morning, it would be nice to have one more good day here, including a Thursday morning run.
30 minutes before the last snack of the day (I’ll still have water but no more food), I weighed in at 79.4. This is shocking, and I have no idea how that happened. I have tried to follow the typical snacks-only diet and do not appear to have made any big mistakes. I am really at a loss for words as to how that happened.
Well, there is nothing I can do about this now. Maybe it is water that is still in my body but will be gone by morning. At any rate, I am not going to skip the last snack. Regardless of what happens here, I knew a day like this was bound to come because of the large weight loss the past 3 days. Just the other day, I said I would never be shocked again at low overnight weight loss. Yet, here I am shocked again, although this is a different situation. Yes, I used to increase like this a lot during the day under my old diet. But this is far and away the most I have ever seen on a snacks-only diet day. The day is not even over yet, and the 2.2 is already .4 over the previous (estimated) high mark of about 1.8. Disaster unless this weight comes off naturally in the next 16 hours.
The last snack was delayed for about an hour, and I did manage to lose approximately .4 kg over that time. I was at about 79.1 and then had a final snack.
Wakeup time was an unmitigated disaster. I was still at 78.8 even after a large pee. I don’t even know how that is possible. But I said I would never be surprised at a low overnight weight low in this situation.
Due to a scheduling change, I cannot run, either. So I am going to have a huge weight gain today, but I might fit in a run tomorrow to make up for this disaster at least a little.
I did have 4 hours left after the 78.8 weigh-in. But that’s not likely going to help all that much. With 2 hours to go, I had gotten down to 78.6. That still had me at a huge 1.4 over for the day. On the bright side, I lost so much the past 3 days that I am still .6 kg under if including this disastrous day. It’s still a nice step in the right direction, and I have to get used to this kind of thing happening. This wild swing is supposed to occur and cannot be avoided short of starvation or dehydration.
Things got even better after going to the bathroom again. I shot down to about 78.3, so a huge, potentially unprecedented disaster is turning into a regular disaster. Even if I do still gain about 1 kg today, it is more than offset by the past 3 days of excellent results. It does put me back in the 78 range, which is the most disappointing part. But that will be fixed next week.
I did not go down any more and finished at 78.3 kg. It is odd that the last 4 hours showed more weight loss than overnight, which included a full night’s sleep. At any rate, I refuse to be surprised any further about those kinds of weird things and will focus on overall results.
I gained 1.1 kg today, rising from 77.2 to 78.3. But since I was 79.2 4 days ago, that is an overall weight loss of .9 kg in 4 days. That is a solid average of over .2 kg per day when including this terrible day. All in all, I am happy.
