Draglist's Journal, 09 Sep 17

Woke at 223.0, down 2.6 after being up all night losing water with the help of Lasix and no C-meds. Popped another dose this morning and continued to drop water, often visiting the bathroom every 20 minutes! Got an amazing 216.6 weigh in before dinner, but that wasn't the weird part. The drastic water loss really threw the Tanita for a loop -- it registered 13.7 percent body fat and a body fat total of 29.7 pounds (down nearly 5 pounds from yesterday). I don't believe it of course; the loss was clearly water and not body fat. I am keeping yesterday's body fat reading and editing the stats to show water loss instead. Will check the morning weigh in to see if I normalize. Also, will do another dose of Lasix tomorrow. May have to save it for the weekends as I won't be able to get through a workday in 20 minute increments! Didn't hit my radically reduced calorie goal today but I'll continue adjusting on Sunday. UPDATE: Weighed in before bed and confirmed that the body weight shown below is valid. Must have misread the scale earlier.

I have Tanita scales but they only show my weight. I think I might drive myself a bit crazy if they were the type that showed body fat, etc. You're wise not to take too much notice of this recording since you know it was water loss. Good luck with keeping the calories down today.

All I am jealous is this Body fat. Amazing! I must learn how much weight have to lose to reduce 1% body fat (crazy). Nice job Bill, take care :-)

Thanks, Doobrie, Poppycom, Glen, John, and Amanda! Don't be too jealous, Amanda. I'm sure it's much closer to 33-34 pounds. (And remember, that as a man, I will be at least ten percentage points lower than an equivalent woman)! I can help with the math if you like, but it has been very challenging for me to lose this last bit myself!

Glad the water weight is leaving you. I know how bad it can make you feel.

I know you are so busy but if you have time I would like to know how much weight have I to lose to have 25-31 body fat for women (I saw a chart). I am so sad now reading about Irma in Florida. Thank you Bill :-)

Thanks, Mom! Hi Amanda. I'll send you a PM asking for a bit more info and I'll be happy to.
