All things equal is there any reasonable explanation as to why I gain a couple of pounds every time I do a century ride? (which is about once/month)
I have sometimes -again all things being more or less equal (intake etc.)- lost weight during sedentary periods.
I am not referring to fleeting alterations of the scale reading as occurs in relation to fluid volume changes. I am talking 2 or 3 lbs extra that show up on the scale for up to a week after.
Because it always happens and yet I continue my overall decline in weight, I have learned not to get too discouraged.
However, it does drive me nuts as far as it just not making sense!!!
Anyone relate or understand???
