While I know it'sstill a bit early for me to be concerned about this, I figured I would ask anyway.
I started my little weight loss journey this past Friday. On Thursday, I weighed myself and I was 172.5lbs. I figured I might have been retaining some water (that well...I just gained weight), so I decided to start to drink a lot more water and cut calories/exercise, etc. The next day (Friday), I weighed myself and I was 170lbs. I assumed the 2.5lbs I lost was due to water retention, as I drank a lot of water on Thursday and peed it all out.
Well, it's now Wendsday, and I weighed myself today--164.5lbs.
My question is am I really doubting the power of water weight or am I going a bit too extreme with counting calories and exercise? I take in about 1250 calories everyday (usually slightly less), drinking about 50-70oz of water a day, and I've been doing Tae Bo for 20 minutes for the past 4 days.
I didn't think I was retaining THAT much water because it is not TOM for me, I don't have any problems with swelling, and I have low blood pressure.
Thank you =)
