Just when I thought I knew everything

Posted by: turbomammoth In: General


IT’S FRIDAYYYY! *gotta get down on friday* Holy molly that was a long week. I’m glad it is almost over… *ceeeelebration time, COME ON!!* (okay, the musical is over now. I promise :-P)

So, to go with my title, this morning I was strucked with the thought of :

”Just when I thought I knew/understood pretty much e-ve-ry-THING about weight loss”, I still managed to get baffle this morning.

I mean, I started dieting at some point in May 2011 (can’t remember the exact date), so I have been dieting for fairly a whole year now. And, darnit, I still don’t understand how my body reacts from time to time.


I did not weight myself this week before tuesday. I knew I ate super salty last weekend so I wanted to give some times to the body to take a bit of the water out before jumping on the scale ;-) When I weighed in on tuesday morning, I was up to 136 lbs. Which was okay with me.

The next day, wednesday, I was up to 136.6 lbs. I ate carbs the night before. Make sense. Plus TOM was supposed to come at anytime now.

Yesterday morning, I was up to 137.6 lbs, and as I said yesterday, I wasn’t happy about it. Freakin’ TOM, freakin’ waterweight, etc, etc. Just before my official friday weight in day.

However, I don’t know what happened yesterday. Was it the work out? The low carb meals we had? The fact that I *TMI* pied and pooped my life away during the day? I don’t know. Maybe it was a bit of everything. Go figure.

All of this to say that finally this morning, my scale told me 135.0 lbs. After being up to 137.6 lbs yesterday (overall, -1.0 lbs from last friday official weigh in).


Don’t get me wrong. I’M SUUUUPER happy with the weigh in.

I’m just… baffled! Seriously, why is it always when you expect the less of your body that the most cool things happened? (Like even if I would maintain a 1200 calories a day for 2 weeks, that’s probably result in a 3 lbs gain) (That was an exemple : I really don’t want that to happen. You did hear that, body, right?)

Oh well. Still an excellent way to start the weekend!

The boyfriend is leaving in the night between saturday and sunday and I told him to pick anything that he wants to have for dinner friday night. He still haven’t decide.

Two choices : I cooked way too many wonderful things for him to decide OR it’s the opposite and there’s nothing in my cuisine that he likes that much. I HOPE it’s the first one LOL

Have a great weekend everyone! :-)

I know exactly what you mean. I think I know exactly how
My body works,and what works for me,then BAM! Something always throws me off. Like sometimes I eat like complete shit,and I lose like 3 pounds. Very strange! Sometimes I have a completely perfect eating week, and I gain. Our bodies are crazy machines that I don’t think we will ever fully understand. Just when I figure out what works,and what is the right combination of things for me. It doesn’t work anymore and I have to switch it up. So weird!
