LHusibeers
Quite a small group this time: jump the ladder, Breaker, Breaker's mate, TPD, priestess, and brief appearances from Phage and a mate of pre's. Got a bit chilly outside the Anchor, and was jammed inside, so ended up at another pub.

Operation Become Less Fat
CW: 12st 1
SW: 14st 4
Loss: 31 pounds
Weeks: 21
Loss per week: 1.5 pounds

Gained a pound since last week. Bit unexpected: there was the LHusibeers, but I'd cut down my mid-week drinks so shouldn't have been much more alcohol than in previous weeks. Had a pub lunch of pie and a Ginsters sausage roll to soak up the beer on Friday though, and had some fried food earlier in the week. Even so it's a bit weird. Losing/gaining a pound takes 3,500 kcal; so going from the 2-pound losses of recent weeks to a 1-pound gain should mean I've consumed an extra 10,500 kcal this week. That's the equivalent of 19 big macs or 46 pints of Stella Artois.

Maybe it's some kind of dehydration thing, or my cheap old scales are acting up. I noticed last time it got a lot more difficult to lose weight after 12 stone though.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. by calla (4.00 / 3) #1 Sat Apr 29, 2006 at 08:36:17 AM EST
You might have hit a plateau. Just keep watching what you eat. Soon you'll start losing again.

Aren't you doing the Hacker's Diet rolling average thing?

One or two individual weighings are always going to be plus or minus a couple pounds because of "undigestible mass" moving through your system and hydration differences.

Also, there is generally a weight where your body starts sending "oh shit! My fat reserves are almost gone!" signals. (A weight that is essentially your ideal weight.) If your weight is in the range that is considered healthy, you may be there. How far are you from where you intend to be?

Me, I'm starting my diet today. :-(

Weighing myself once a week at the same time has been fairly consistent up to now. Didn't bother in the first month though as that's too erratic. Got the same weight this morning, so either I've reached a new stage or last week's reading was too low.
