Yesterday morning was my weekly weigh in for the Biggest Winner progress check and after my challenging ride I got on the scale. The number wasn't quite what i had expected - 423.4. I had hoped for it to be less, but it wasn't. I was back to where I had been 2 weeks before (before Easter weekend and the feeding frenzy).
This morning I didn't ride as when the alarm went off, I was just too tired to get my butt up and out there. Imagine my surprise, then when I got on the scale and it showed 420.4. I couldn't believe it so I got off and back on to double check. Yep 420.4. I had lost 3 pounds overnight by not exercising.
OK, I realize that the weight is probably mostly water weight and that there is no way I could truly lose that much fat overnight, but I was very happy to see that number on the scale!
Now we did change our eating this week. We went back to the low-cab Atkins type eating plan. I know this works for me and from he scale I would say its true. For the duration of the Biggest Winner, we are going to stick to low-carb and see how much we can melt away.
