Draglist's Journal, 10 Jun 14

Despite sub 800 calorie fast day yesterday weighed in at 204.0 this morning. Will eat about 850 calories through the afternoon and then will do an hour on the treadmill when I get home. That should result in a better weigh in. Targeting about 2000 calories today.

I would be so frustrated Bill but you handle the ups and downs very well. Fingers crossed for a more prolonged 'down' soon :)

Thanks, all. I record it all. Not worried about it. Perplexed sometimes, but I know I'm doing the right things. Yesterday was a severe adjustment. I'll begin eating 100 or 200 calories fewer per day starting today and that will defnitely get me where I want to go. I trust the math!

I always find the lower my body fat the more my weight swings. Sounds weird, but I think the body is more likely to store carbs as glycogen and so you get the water retention with the glycogen storage of carbs in the muscle. No water retention if the carb is converted to fats.

That's one more reason to not so focused on the scale and more on the tape and what you see at the end of your journey.

I completely agree with Northern! The "Idiot Box" tells you some information but not the whole picture!

Thanks, Madangen and Derian! JMB, I'm not even frustrated anymore... (until that damned line gets into the green anyway!). I agree with you on all points, NM. It's totally all about the body hydration at this point. I'm convinced that my body fat is at a certain level and the weight swings are the body water/dehydration swings. My clothes from just last summer (at the END of my initial goal) became too loose and also were given away. So the tape is rocking, too!

Thanks, HCB! Yes, if it was JUST the scale, I'd be apoplectic. But the Tanita BIA scale provides a deeper look inside the numbers (although still widely influenced by body hydration).

I get so mad at my scale. I will be doing great, then get on the scale, and here we go. 4 pounds heavier. And for what? I can't stand it.

Thanks for sharing your process and feelings. I know you will find the sweet spot for loss again soon. J
