Water = good
Sunday, January 29, 2012
That's what I'm telling myself.
I don't really have a problem with drinking my 8 glasses a day (and I'm usually drinking out of a 400ml glass rather than a 250ml one, so I'm getting plenty). I was pretty pleased with myself because the weight was dropping - mid-week I was down to 66.3kg. Then I had a couple of meals out - nothing too OTT, just went over my allowance by 100 calories over those two days (in total, not each day), and I didn't get to the gym or do pilates for those two days either. Woomph, I shot up by a kilo yesterday. Sad face. That's come back down today to where I was this time last week (66.9). BUT, in the first couple of weeks my scales kept reporting my water levels as crazy low, and now they seem to have evened out to slightly low to normal, so I know that is better for me overall. I've also been pretty good at getting lots of exercise, so I would expect that I'm building muscle as well, which will make weight loss look slower - and that's what the tape measure is for. And looking in the mirror and noticing a hint of definition in the tummy and calves.
On the really up-side, apart from yesterday's anomaly, I've been not overweight for a week now!
And yes, I know I'm not *supposed* to weigh everyday, but it's part of how I keep myself motivated.
