5th week rendezvous

by juliusi on 20 Apr 2013, 09:04

Today for me is the official weigh day since I started this diet on a Saturday. I finished my 5th week and can't believe how fast the time passes and how easy (most of the times) this WOE is.
Today the scale verdict is 76kg.
Since I started this is a net loss of 3.4kg, an average of 680g per week, which is just a bit above the lb the majority is experiencing here on the site. Probably this is due to the fact that I have a quite heavy training regime that allows me to loose a bit more even if sometimes I, not counting calories on feed days, exceed my TDEE.
I have taken the six saturday's data and can see the slow descent of weight:
1- 79.4
2- 77.7
3- 76.5 (friday data. didn' tweight on Saturday)
5- 76.2
4- 76.9
5- 76
It seems to me that the weight loss is quite steady apart the first week in which I lost a lot, but that is normal, and an increase last week which I can't really explain.
Important thing is that overall the diet seems to work and the weight is steadlily going down. What I need to do is to be a bit more careful on my feed days. I have always thought that my training helps me a lot in keeping the weight under control. Infact everytime I stop training, such as in winter for a prolonged period, I gain weight meaning that I usually tend to eat more than I am allowed. Only when I really counted my calories precisely I dropped about 8kg (was 84 went to 74), but most of the time I find it difficult to count them and eat what has already been prepared.
So let's start for another 5:2 week and hopefully hit another PB as it has happened this week. Hopefully today and tomorrow I don't do too many damages so that Monday fast will be a great one to look for.
Have a lovely fast and non fast week end.
