Fell off the bandwagon and wtf

Postby Schteve » Mon Oct 22, 2007 1:53 am

Well, on saturday morning I weighed myself and was 80kg. I 5 kilo drop since I started about a month ago, not too bad considering I've mainly changed my diet not my exercise routine.

But, I knew saturday night would send my diet to hell. It was my 20th, and I drank 16 beers and 16 cans of coke (first coke in 5 weeks). I of course ate junk food; chips, sausage rolls, chicken nuggets, pizzas, other random crap.

So I got up this morning, fearing the worst, and weighed myself... To be 78.5! :o First time I've been in the 70's in a long time. How on earth did I manage to lose 1.5 kilos drinking lots of beer and coke and eating junk?

Is the moral of the story to drink heaps and get drunk more often? lol

I'd actually guess you were dehydrated too... The body works in a strange way, and even if you'd eaten enough to put on 1.5kg in a night (which is a LOT of calories), it wouldn't show up by the next morning like that.. takes a little while!

Very odd! But no, I don't think the moral is to eat junk and drink heaps, unfortunately!!! :) WIsh it was!!

I find that a bad food day can take up to 4 days to show up on the scales for me. I hope that this is a fluke and you get to keep your weight loss!!

Yes it could well have been dehydration I suppose. I drank 2-3 glasses of water, but nowhere near as much as I peed out. ;) I didn't think of that.

I guess I'll wait a few days and see what the scales say. Hopefully I don't put heaps on, it was 79.5 this morning. I always weigh less in the mornings than at night by about a kilo, probably because at night my body digests all the food I've eaten properly.

Yeah it was a fun night. :) I was actually aiming to drink 20 (for my 20th), and fell a little bit short.. Not because I got too drunk, but because the damn things were hitting my stomach hard. Oh well.

Yeah I had a very strange thing happen a couple of months ago too. Although I did keep to roughly my calorie requirements for the day, I had 'something' (it's going to remain nameless) and didn't do anything physical really for the entire evening/morning. Weighed myself the next day and realised I lost 800g.

I can't begin to understand why the hell it happened. I'm assuming it just sped my metabolism up like crazy? god knows. It was weird as hell. After that evening though it went back to my usual 200g weight loss each day, thank god.
