My brain knows that there are days when my weight will inexplicably go up a bit, and I thought I was prepared to deal with that, but between yesterday when I felt so weak I abandoned my planned interval session, and this AM when I was up a pound without any change in my eating. After weighing in, I am feeling low.
The rational facts are that I had not missed a day of riding in 2 weeks, and I do three hard interval sessions a week. I have been tracking my calories by measuring and entering into a program called Calories 3. Weight has been dropping nicely, 4.5 pounds in a week, which I know is too much and probably water balance. so the last two day, I was the same then up a pound. And rationally thats OK and not unexpected.
But I feel bad and slightly depressed about it. So how do you emotionally deal with the ebbs and flows of weight loss and plateaus?
