  • WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY BODY?!?! Whaaaaaaa! So, it's true, I ate a bunch of crap this week (that epic burger) but also I've just been eating a lot! Whenever I significantly increase my activity level (added lifting) I always feel extra hungry and have an easier time "cheating". Yesterday we took the kids to a roller skating party and I did rollers late a bit and then ate a small piece of strawberry shortcake AND a chocolate cupcake. WTF?!?! I know that has high PUFA. I don't give a fck about the flour or sugar, it's the vegetable oil and possibly hydrogenated oil in the frostings that disgust me. I'm all puffy and lumpy now and I weigh the most I can recall weighing outside of pregnancy. Eeep!! I can't even say how much. I know it's probably water and not fat but still. Gross. Because I know the scale is a tricky motherfcker, I did the real test- putting on some too small jeans. I got into them! So now I'm really like WTF?! I'm the heaviest yet somehow smaller. I do have a wicked muffing top, er cupcake top, hanging over these pants- but not too long ago I couldn't even button them.



    So obviously ill not be eating like a careless piglet this week but is there a fast way to lose this water weight? Not the water in my muscles, just the skin fat water puff? I have water pills. I am thinking about taking some. Anything else?

      When I gain some unexplained poundage/bloat from too much eating (generally of crap foods ie cake) I've found the best way to lose the water weight to be a combo of low carb and IF. Basically, fast until dinner - eat a steak with a vegetable. Repeat the next day if necessary. I have not needed more than 2 days for the water weight to be gone. The lack of carbs seems to cause the water weight to be released. Then I go back to eating normally. Of course YMMV.

      • You retain a lot of water in your muscles when you first start exercising in a different way.

        Also I am much heavier now that I lift weights.

          • My "bloating" is really random (I put it in quotes because I don't think fluctuating between raging abs and decent abs is the same level of bloating other people deal with). But there's no real pattern I can discern. My abs were raging after a week of drinking at the Great American Beer Festival last week. But last year after it was over I looked like I had a man baby. And had the worst gas ever.

            As far as it going away, I just keep eating whatever's paleo/primal, and it does. High carb or low carb seems to make no difference. My salt intake varies quite a bit also with no predictable effect on abs status.

            Probably not much help, other than to point out "it happens".

            • I'm so glad you posted this!!! About three weeks ago I gained 7 lbs, but weirdly my measurements are the same, even though I'\m ridiculously bloated. No idea what's causing it (well, probably stress in my case).

              I'm kind of hoping it might be the bloat before a whoosh but I'm not holding my breath...

              • And that goddam body fat analysis scale is still showing 40% body fat.



                Over 32% is obese. My body fat % has not budged. I feel like I need to do something drastic.

                And this is why I shouldn't have access to crappy, unreliable body fat measuring devices.

                I need to remember to have a trainer get the calipers on me at the club next time I go. Which should be today.

                  Agreed, though to be fair when I go off the reservation it is usually more than a cupcake. And, of course, on your worst day you look better than I do on my best

                    • In happier news I deadlifted 155lbs as my 5 rep max today.

                      And some gorgeous young men whom I was openly admiring doing handstand walks and weighted pull-ups (**fans face**) taught me how to use the rubber bands to do pull-ups instead of the weight assisted machine.

                        A body fat machine put me at 28% bf. You've seen my pics. I'm not skinny, but I'm not 28% bf!

                        Those things are affected by how hydrated you are, how inflamed, and how much you're pooping. The way your clothing fits in teh most reliable measurement.

                          • Mo, you're super hot regardless of what your scale says! You look strong, lean, and vibrant.

                            Now, can you please post that chocolate syrup recipe!!

                              Thanks ladies. I have calmed down today as the 5 lbs I gained has magically disappeared overnight. I found out ican get a caliper reading from a trainer so I will do that this week, though am nervous that it will just confirm my obesity and I can't keep using the "those digital scales are inaccurate". But maybe that is just the push I need to get serious about my diet and stop eating cupcakes at every birthday party I go to.

                              My little boys party was last night though, and I had pizza, soda, 3 mini cupcakes and a single serve cup of Hagen Daz. I now have 12 leftover cupcakes taunting me in the house- so I am taking evasive measures. I made a sweet lunch of a slice of cold steamed sweet potato, with a dollop of whipped cottage cheese and a drizzle of THE chocolate syrup and sprinkled with pumpkin pie spice.



                              Finished with a mug of chocolate milk.

                              I also have an applesauce soufflé in the oven.

                              I will not be having any cupcakes today. Promise.

                              As for the chocolate syrup- you must go to raypeatforum.com and search "chocolate syrup" to see all the comments about it. It's legendary. It's one guy's (Bruce maybe?) recipe that gets passed around and talked about a lot. Very charming.

                              I have already forgotten, but I think you just cook together 2 cups sugar, 1 cup cocoa and 1 cup water for a few minutes. Chilled it takes on the consistency of Hershey's syrup in a can. Holy hell is it good.
