A very dehydrated 92kg (203lb) after this morning's ride.

Was about 93.5kg (206) pre-ride, so we'll see what I am after breakfast and a few more glasses of water!

I didn't post last week, and won't this week because my vacation threw off my ability to weigh in on my regular day. I'm a once-a-week weigher, no more, and I'm trying to stick with that to avoid what for me can be a lot of psychological hills and valleys if I do it daily.

Rest assured, when I weigh in again this Saturday, and post next week with the results, you'll the the other effect of the vacation - too much BBQ and pie.

Sorry for being late to the party. I missed checking in the past few weeks because I was doing my first multi-day tour. The tour was a great learning experience, though it skewed my weigh-in results a little bit. I (like many others, I'm sure) tend to retain a lot of water weight when I do long rides. It usually takes a few days, but then the weight literally falls off. You can see what I mean if you check out my numbers for the week immediately following the 6 day tour:



10/2 = 290.0 This is the day I left for the trip. I'd be riding from 10/3 - 10/8.


10/9 = 283.0 The morning after I returned home.

10/10 = 286.2
10/11 = 290.6

10/12 = 286.4
10/13 = 283.0
10/14 = 279.8
10/15 = 279.4
This morning.


Yes, it literally took about a week for my fluid levels (and therefore my weight) to stabilize again. Weird, huh? This is one of the reasons I weigh myself every day. Otherwise I might have been a little freaked out by the weird weight fluctuations. In fact, some months ago was when I discovered this anomaly and I was pretty weirded out by it. But the experience has helped me better understand how my body works.


Anyways... tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the arbitrary day I decided to lose weight and get my life back. I will post a tearful summary of the journey thus far as well as begin discussing what I hope to accomplish in 2011. Hopefully when I start discussing the topic of "goals" it won't degrade into what the last thread on the topic turned into.
