Hurt back, stopped biking... lost weight?!
So long story short, lost 100 pounds last year, slipped over the winter and gained 40 back. Got earnestly back into cycling in April, stopped the upward climb... but there was no downward movement. Increased my distance from 300 a month in April to being well on my way to hitting 600 in June, but no matter how hard I exercise or how much I cut from my diet, my weight has been rock steady and unchanging for 3 months.
Then last week I did my first really hilly ride of the season, and ended up hurting my back. I think all the standing did me in, not sure. But rather than risk making it worse, I've stayed off the bike and done nothing for the past 6 days. Over these 6 days I've lost 8 pounds.
What. the. heck.
Anyone know how this could possibly occur?
