Win some lose some

After the dizzy heights of last weeks stunning 900gm loss I came crashing back to earth (with a resounding THUD) after tonights weigh in.

It is my second worst result since I started this journey, but hey I did lose wieght at least so I am still under 70kgs, not by much but I am there. I have not yet hit the low point of having no loss at all or worse, gaining weight and I am feverently hoping that is something I won't have to deal with.

So why exactly was my result so bad this week? Well I have a theory.
But if you want to know more you need to head into TMI territory, are you sure we are well enough acquainted for that?

OK, here goes. Usually every night I take a probitoic/IBS supplement which seems to do wonders for keeping me *ahem* regular. However, this week I took the box into the bedroom to look up the ingredients on the net and then forgot to return it to it's usual place on the microwave so I've been forgetting to take it each night.

I also have had another bad week with water, I'm really struggling with adequete water intake during this cooler weather. If anyone has any tips for keeping up your water intake I would be most appreciative.

So anyway, the result of no gut supplement and not enough water? Without getting into the nitty gritty lets just say that out of everything that has gone into my mouth this week, I'd estimate only about a third of it has come out the other end.

So, yes, some people have long suspected, but now I am about to confirm it; I am full of shit.

  1. Hilarious! I might need to check that supplement out.

    I can't seem to get enough water either. I used to drink 100 oz. a day, but now barely get 20. That's baaaad. Especially since I was put on a water pill for HBP. I think I need to get serious and FORCE myself to drink it.

  2. I think you are right---being regular really helps us shed toxins from our body and utilize the calories we ingest. Drinking water does the same. Good for you for recognizing that and good luck for the future. Great blog
