So, this past Tuesday I weighted in at 264.8, a loss of 1.9 lbs. from the prior week - this was more or less what I was expecting.
Then this morning I was feeling good and got tempted and stepped on the scale again, and it said 251.3 lbs.
I thought at first the scale had a low battery so I changed it and weighed again but it was the same.
My clothes fit about the same but I am much less bloated and I realized the only difference in the past 1 1/2 weeks or so is that I've cut my carbs and sugar way down.
I did a little research and learned that the glycogen stored in the liver is held there with a lot of water, and if you decrease sugars the water retention goes down - but 13 pounds down? Could that be accurate?
Anyone ever have this strange experience? I will say I often have swollen feet and calves and they weren't swollen. It seems crazy I should be carrying around this much water weight.
