Ugh! Stupid water retention!

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

I am going to have to drink some serious fluids! I am retaining water like mad! I weighed in at 127.4 yesterday and this morning at 129.6! I about fell over! I talked myself down off the ledge by reminding myself that

1. I am retaining water. I have been out of bed over three hours and my ring is still tight.

2. I haven't used the "bathroom" in several days

3. My muscles are sore from PC Fit

And most of all -- IT IS NOT MY TRUE WEIGHT!

I will have to see if the trend continues. The important thing is how my clothes fit. I could be gaining weight as I gain muscle tone? That is a possibility. It is just so hard to tell because of all the loose skin that is hanging around. I can see some definition in my arms, but it is overshadowed by that nasty loose skin.

I took another class yesterday with Coach Mike, and I have to say, I was impressed by this one. I felt I got a good workout, and I was challenged. I also got the new schedule and am super excited that Paul will be taking over the Monday 10:00 slot. I am going to have to make sure to get there for that one because Paul is awesome! I am sore for days after a Paul workout.

Looks like I will mostly have Paul or Anthony according to the new schedule. I like Anthony too, but his workouts are more complicated. They seem to sometimes require more coordination that I have, but hopefully that will come in time. I am going to miss Tony's workout. His workouts were simple and brutal. He used a lot of basic moves that were killer. When you got done with Tony, you knew it!

Anyway, time to get ready for work --

    Perhaps your doctor would give you a diuretic for water retention.

    Girl, those lb are absolutely water. After a hard workout when we have those lovely little micro fibre muscle tears that will grow more muscle, we do retain water. You just need to heal up a bit. It will drop off you in a couple of days. The thing is you are getting stronger and fitter. Glad you like your new trainer better.
    I can pick up 2kg/about 4lb of water overnight and keep it on for two weeks. Hormones.
    But if I stay consistent, eating right working out and staying away from sugar and alcohol it is very rewarding to then lose 4kg in two days when it decides to shift.
    Hope it happens soon for you!

    It definitely could be from gaining some muscle. Keep up the good workouts regardless of who is doing the class and you will see more and more of that. Like you said, go by how your clothes fit.

    Remember that there is a BIG difference between making a DECISION and making a COMMITMENT. God Bless YOU! Vic.
