Weigh-in #9 – Back Up to 333

Wheel full 70px Well, it looks like the hot streak has ended.


Wheel full 70px My weight’s back up to 333 pounds/just over 150 kg, which is where it was two weeks ago.  I’m not freaking out, mind you.  It’s likely that there’s enough variation between scales where neither this week’s result nor last week’s was on the money.  I’m pretty much religiously counting caloric intake on MyFitnessPal [linkie] and, to the extent my expenditure of calories when I am riding as calculated by RidewithGPS [linkie] is even remotely accurate, I am still well below the net intake that would be required to maintain my weight at a particular point.  So I can deal with that, and I’m guessing that there’ll be a return next Monday to the glide path downward I’ve been on the past couple of months.  Or not.

Wheel full 70px We’ll see.

Wheel full 70px Oh, and of far more immediate concern… it’s pouring rain.

  1. Congrats on the proper hydration 🙂

    For now, the 326 is an outlier, and the anomolous measurement was very likely due to a combination of factors, none of which are related to fat loss or gain. Factors would include dehydration, and perhaps even the lower body glycogen stores that you’ll get if you lay off of physical activity and cut food intake. Just to be clear, yes, I’m saying that pausing vigorous exercise for a few days or a couple weeks can cause a temporary weight loss, although that won’t reflect on your waist.

    The way things are going, you may well leave 326 lbs behind you for GOOD some time next month. And when you get there, I bet your waist will be a touch smaller than it was the last time you weighed 326.

    As you probably know now that you’re an MFP user, losing enough fat to close the 7 lbs separating your current weight from 326 lbs needs a cumulative caloric deficit of around 7×3500=24,500 calories. Which is great info to keep in mind… but also keep in mind that nobody, and particularly not MFP, can accurately estimate your body’s calorie usage without special equipment (nothing you could take on a cross country bike ride).

    • Counting expenditure of calories is tough. But if over the weeks the weight does not go down eat less. I would give it three more weeks or so to really establish a good trend. Looks like cooler weather is helping the riding.
