Chicago Mike 's Journal, 18 May 2013

Big drop this week. Not sure why. Not complaining. Did work out a bit harder, but not enough to cause a 4lb weight loss in one week. Surprised that I'm more curious about why I lost 4lbs, then I am excited about it.
303.0 lb Lost so far: 47.0 lb.    Still to go: 53.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Wow, that's amazing! Our bodies work in strange ways. We have weeks where we don't lose on the scale, but if you measure yourself, you might see fat/inches lost. There are weeks of overeating and seeing a big loss on the scale. Maybe the extra food kicks starts the metabolism. I think consistency has a lot to do with it. Upping protein can cause more water loss. So many factors cause the scale to go up and down. But a big "whoo hooo" for you on your loss!!!!

Thanks. I'm going to review my food and exercise journal. I've read some things on shaking up your metabolism during/after weight loss plateaus. Changing work out routine, high calorie day-low calorie day etc. But for now woo-hoo is correct :) Avoiding temptation for a reward is the next challenge. Hopefully in a couple of weeks, I'm resetting my goal to a lower number.
