I went from 197 yesterday to a huge drop of 195.4 today. Don't think I've ever experienced that kind of drop in a day. Could it be that since I was extremely sore from a couple of ramped up days of exercise and one grueling day of yard work last week, I held some water weight there? I was exactly 197 for 5 days before today's drop. Today was also the first day I wasn't sore at all.
I'm really excited about it but I almost don't believe it! At first the scale was going all over the place (I was happy with the 196.4 it gave me once) but then it popped up 195.4 like 6x.
muscle tissue that is repairing/healing will hold on to more water than regular muscles for a day or two, so what you went through is completely normal and 'ok'! congrats on the weigh in!
i don't plan on weighing myself until tuesday, but am hoping the scale will produce a smile
