When is losing to much weight bad?

Thursday, July 19, 2012

So yesturday I was 252. Today I did the body test on the wii like I do every day. Something has me concerned. When I did the body test this morning I weighed 250. Is this healthy? Am I pushing my self to hard?

I weigh my self in the morning only after drinking 1 glass of water. I do it around 8 am each morning.

    Everyone's weight fluctuates back and forth especially if your just starting to lose weight. I wouldn't worry about it . emoticon

    Depending on the time of day, how much water you have consumed, and your food consumption you can fluctuate up to 5lbs in a single day. That's why you should weigh yourself at the same time every time (I like Mondays midmorning: after breakfast and my pot of tea). If you've consumed a lot of sodium one day, you might retain water too.

If you had an entire week of losing 2lbs/day that would be worrying, but for just one day, you should be fine :) Also, like Elaine said, at a higher weight, in a % loss, 2lbs is a far smaller percent than in a lower-weight (that's why in shows like the biggest loser they can present 6-9lbs weight loss every week). But if your loss is that high in a week, you should also be monitoring with a Dr.

    Don't worry, if you're more than 200lbs, you will lose more than someone say, 125lbs per week becoz you have more to lose. Does that make sense?
