Ok, ready for gales of laughter?!....

k0: Pm 62.4, Am 61.6
wk1: Pm 62.4, Am 60.9
wk2: Pm 62.7, Am 61.1
wk3: Pm: 63.1, Am: 61.1
wk4: Pm: 62.3, Am: 61.1
wk5: Pm: 62.6, Am 61.1 (the gluttony week)
wk6: Pm: 61.5, Am 61.0
wk 7: Pm 62.2, Am 61.1
wk 8: Pm 61.7, Am 61.3
wk9: Pm (forgot), Am 60.7
wk10 Pm 62.2, Am 61.1

Although it sure has been an interesting week in the fluctuation department. For a few days, I scored in the mid/low 60s, but then one day I weighed heavier when I woke up, at a staggering 62.5!! I do know the cause however. I over-trained and had two days of incredible pain - like can't even lift my leg to put my clothes on pain. And when anything like that comes along, my pain syndrome (and migraine) kicks in so its just awful. I figure there was a lot of inflammation which made the scale readings. ANyway, after two days of pain (and high weight measurements) I succumbed to the pain. None of my drugs did the cure. Instead, 2 whole blocks of chocolate made me feel very very WELL; feeling a lot better after the first one, and feeling totally better after the second. And I'm not being funny! The next morning, hey presto, weight was back down...(Not that I'm planning on a chocolate diet!)

How's that for an epic story of fluctuation!!

When you over train your body will retain fluid for muscle production...once finished you will find that the weight will rapidly go back down. You may also find that your chocolate consumption will not show it's face straight away (particularly if masked by fluid expulsion)...it could show up later.

Well another 61.1kg weekly weigh in...my how you love that number! Good work! 8)

I'd love to get excited, but my weight fluctuates wildly all week, so I have to keep a level head! Like this week, I've had 60.4 thru to 61.7 - mostly I can link it to my illnesses so I don't go mental. If I see the scales reading something for 3 days in a row, then I am mildly sure...if the figure stays constant for 2 weekly weigh-ins, then let's celebrate!!

But thanks for your encouragement! I am on the mojo to try harder for this week :)

Gosh...I have bigger fluctuations before and after exercise - each day! Just this morning was a 2.4kg difference! :shock: :lol:

The body naturally will cycle between different weights during a week. The skill is keeping it within a range...not trying to keep it at one steady number. If you body did stay on just one number - better check your pulse - you could be dead! :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

You are doing it well...relax and enjoy you achievement. :)

I can sooooooooooooooo relate to the body fluctuating to extremes!!! :oops:
After reaching my challenge goal LAST WEIGH IN (Sunday) my body has gone up and down, as high as 75.9kg one day and then back to 74.4kg in the morning; that's a whopping 1.5kg loss overnight!!! :shock: Geez....did someone come in and saw a limb off my body while I slept and I didn't notice??!! :roll:

lol...well, those fluctuations I mentioned were all morning weigh ins. If I mentioned the during the day, pre exercise, post exercise, and night time weigh ins (not that these feature in my life, but with a lot of training comes lots of time in the shower...and the bathroom is where the scales are!), then I'd have some seriously impressive and weird ups and downs, some of which have taken time to understand (like weighing in 2 extra kilos heavier after a couple hours of exercise!!).

Sounds like we are all normal and not dead!

Wow Tams just read through your progress posts and can't believe how many times you've weighed in at 61.1!
Good luck with the challenge :)

Ditto on both counts!! Well done Tams!! :wink:

Though, I'm seriously starting to think "it's not you, it's your scales" that are out of whack??!! :? Many years ago, I had an (obviously worn out) set of scales that no matter how much a person weighed, the number shown on the display was always the same!!! :shock: I asked a number of people to stand on it (to check) a equally overweight girlfriend, my 6 ft 2' husband, and my 2 year old toddler and (you guessed it) THEY ALL weighed 60kg (on the knocker!!!) :roll:

Sounds like those scales were a keeper Josie! :lol: :wink:

Don't forget Tams gets other readings from her scales as well. I think it is more the case of rigid determination on Tams' part rather than a rigid reading!
