I was right. The flavored water was the reason I was stalled at 149 for a few days. I didnít drink any yesterday and today I weighed myself and I was 147.8.

Today my calories are going to equal to around 1130-1200. Although currently I have only had 80 calories.

@MountainDewed - I suspect it was just water weight in general. We tend to drink a lot more when it is flavored.

153 this morning, lowest I have seen in a while. One week until shoulder surgery. I really want it low before that. I am hopeful I will have a reduced appetite with reduced activity.

I went over yesterday by a few hundred. I had a really rich donut in the morning. I had some topped ice cream as an afternoon snack and salty soup last night. I worked out early afternoon. I was expecting a spike this morning, but I didn't get it. 153 again.

Kind of iffy, but I may come in under my limit and then go exercise so late that I might not eat before bed, which would mean a big deficit. Maybe too big; I might go over a couple of hundred on purpose before going to the gym. Without going into too much detail a "pipeline event" makes it unlikely that tomorrow's weigh in will be more than today's. I really hope my last couple of weights aren't low spike flukes. I want to be way down in my range before Friday's shoulder surgery. Seeking comfort in food is a bad general policy, but I would like to have a little leeway next weekend. Because of substance abuse history, I am not getting any pain meds. Ibuprofen and a stick to bite. A cup cake and ice cream might help.

Was up crazy late last night; had to pick up a kid an hour away at 2 am. I did 80 minutes of Arc trainer at 11, but I munched quite a bit before and after. Yet this morning I weighed 152. I did feel very dehydrated but I think the downward trend is very legit. I am going to try to get in as much gym time as I can between now and Friday before surgery.

Last night I went out to dinner and I really pigged out. I ate a serving of mozzarella sticks, some bread, a salad, some garlic bread, half a lasagna, soup, cheesecake with chocolate sauce, and ice cream with chocolate sauce. The waitress was probably thinking Iím one of those people that can magically eat whatever they want to and not gain a pound.

Anyways, Iíve gotten about 3 hours of sleep and Iíve been up since 12 chugging water since Iím so thirsty. I think I drank about 60oz of water in 2 hours. I look like Iím 4 months pregnant. Iím already wearing big pants and my stomach is sticking out. Iím wondering if I should be worried with all the water Iíve been drinking. Iím still really thirsty too. I donít plan on eating again like that for weeks.

I just weighed myself and I was 154. Thatís 8 pounds since Saturday. I defiantly have some sort of retention going on. I feel horrible. My heart is pounding and I have anxiety. Plus Iím still incredibly thirsty. I donít think itís worth going to the doctor for. But I am kind of worried.
