My apologies to **Khadaji ** if he feels I am stepping on his toes in starting this month’s thread but I had a question and thought I would go ahead and start June’s thread while I was at it.
Due to various factors, my diet has sucked the past few weeks and somehow wound up gaining fifteen pounds, going from 197 to 212, in just over a week. I was overeating in that time but not to levels that would make me gain that much weight so quickly so I assumed a good portion of it was due to food still in my system, water retention, and whatever else and my theory seemed to be proven when the scale said I rapidly went from 212 to 208 after getting back on track but, two days later, I’ve supposedly lost another six pounds and am weighing in at 202.
Needless to say, I’m a little skeptical of my scale and weighed myself at least a half dozen times in different areas to make sure that it wasn’t a temporary glitch but it gave me same exact number every time I stepped on it. Is this possible? I’ve been using the bathroom pretty often the past few days while also restricting my intake but is there any way I actually had ten pounds of food and water in system or do I need to get a new scale?
Assuming the best (I am going to try to be optimistic for once) :
Initial Weight: 360 lbs
Current Weight: 202 lbs
Goal Weight: 150 lbs
158 lbs down; 52 to go.
