Good morning!

Daaaaaaamn... if it wasn't because I truly believe that FULL EXCLOSURE is the way to go when it comes to weight-loss accountability, then I would NOT register this weigh-in.

This morning, I am literally the heaviest I have been in half a year. I am honestly shocked.

I am happy that I have my Über Smart Smartscale, though. It keeps me from panicking.

You see, my bodyfat% is the same as it was a about two weeks ago - 10.5%. It was a high day too, so I think the numbers are comparable.

What IS a significant change is water percentage and muscle mass, which go hand in hand. What I "suffer" from is (mostly) excess fluid, and it will come off fast, when I do right. And do right I will.


I did good yesterday. I had a large meal of fried liver with onions, and the sides that go with it for lunch. It was all accounted for and entered. I needed plenty of post-workout meat - I could tell that my body was asking for it.

Dinner was a pita with a good chunk of chicken.

I had no snacks whatsoever.

My calorie intake for the day was 1900 calories. My meals were large, and I had chili oil in my pita. Still, I was under my 2,000 calorie RDI. I set the RDI myself, putting it about 500 calories lower than what FS and my food calculator suggests. It should be plenty.

I have today's meals planned already, and today will be a Low Cal Day. I really want one, as I think it'll help me push a little towards goal, and it'll help me shed some fluid.

My lunch today is leftover picadillo from Wife's dinner yesterday. Dinner will be chicken soup. Super low calorie meals.


Yesterday was a crazy days. We had the toughest storm since 2005 hitting Denmark. I was teaching my classes yesterday, or should I say I was supposed to... as nobody showed up. That was probably a smart move from everyone.

I teach the classes at the gym, and it was virtually empty too.


I slept horrible last night, because of the winds - it was howling all night, and it was just hard to sleep. It sounded like the house was being torn apart, and obviously it makes one a little paranoid.

Nothing happened, though, it was just the sounds of the wind pulling in our old building.


So, today is a "take-it-easy"-kinda day.

I will definitely try to get some sleep tonight. I was tired from get-go, and I don't expect it to get much better, unfortunately.

Today is not a workout day, but I do need my steps. My walk was a little shorter than expected, but I have managed to get about 6,000 steps of my 10,000 goal in already. I will make sure to be at AT LEAST 10,000 before I go home today. I need to reach my goals. Every day. EVERY SINGLE DAY until surgery.


The surgery is on December 5th. It's soon. Obviously, this is stressing me out a little, whether I want it to or not.

I am not really concerned about it, but I think it would be unnatural if there wasn't just a little butterflies about it. Of course there is.

I think one of the stress factors have been that I weigh too much right now. It's something I can fix, and something I am already fixing, but it is a real stress factor. And, of course, the trouble is double as I tend to want to eat when I stress out, as many of us do.

Still, I have the tools to fix it, I just gotta be better at applying them every single time.


I can't believe that I weighed in at 87 today. I am truly shocked about this, fat gain or not. This is NOT what I expected, after all. Damn.

I'm glad I am already in the mindset to drop weight NOW, or I'd be S.O.L. I just gotta do good.


Today, I'm thankful for:
- Focus.
- Wife.
- Walking, for a small calorie burn, and for mindfulness.
- Music. Music. Music.

Have a great day. Life is good!

I so admire your honesty. When I see the scales going up I tend to stay away, which is a seriously bad ostrich-like move. You're doing good so you know it'll show in time, keep at it.

The storms were horrible... Glad you didn't get any damage. 5 people were killed in the UK, because of the weather (trees falling on buildings, cars etc) lots of structural damage too. We were lucky and missed the worse (right on the edge of it, just got lots of rain). Blah about the weight gain... At least you have your smart scale, so know it isn't there to stay :-)

Glad you and your house are ok. Moving forward and you will prevail-I'm sure of it!!!

S**t happens. It will be gone in a day or two. But when it happens, we panic. Well, I do. Interesting isn't it how we can gain so much weight over a short period of time. I did 5lbs in 4 days. And didn't eat 8 pizzas and 4 cakes to get up there. Don't think I went above 2000 or 2500K/day. And yet, BBBBBBBBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMM. It was there, but came off after I went back to dieting. Could it be from your past days of indulging?

It is MOST CERTAINLY from a few days of excess calories and not taking care of anything. This happens on a regular basis, but just not as extreme as this. Everyone's right - no need to panic. I don't panice. It's just REALLY extreme, and very tedious. I did good yesterday, doing good today, and will do good most days the next LONG time.

It's so frustrating when the weight comes on in ways - or amounts - that are unexpected. We attach so much significance to that one number, and when it surprises us, it's hard. I think the thing to remember is that it is only one of the numbers, and not the most important to our health, maybe not even in the top five! It's just the easiest to measure accurately.

You are probably still 'paying' for previous sins. Relax, breathe, and pray for better tomorrow.
