Day Twenty-Eight: fourth weigh-in, WTF!?!?

I did my weekly weigh in, and it showed 178.5, a loss of four pounds in one week, and an INCREASE in bodyfat of .5% to 19%. I am pretty sure this is an anomalous reading, but for certain I am still losing too fast. Perhaps this has to do with hydration or a lack of carbs. I am going to try eating 20 full blocks today and see what the scale has to say tomorrow: I do see some more definition and my measurements are down, not to mention my clothes being looser, so I am not sure what is going on. For sure, you cannot lose 4 lbs of bodyfat in a week, so a lot of that would be muscle, but I don't think this is accurate.

Here I am a few years back at 196 and 30% bodyfat, busting out of size 38 jeans.

And here I am today at perhaps 17% bodyfat, badly in need of a trip to Lululemon as these 38 shorts really don't fit me. They fit when I started this blog at 189 lbs one month ago.

8AM 1 cup milk = 1 block

11AM 1.5 chicken sausage, 2 eggs, 2 cup veggies, 1/2 cup potato, 1 oz figs, 1/2 tablespoon butter, 12 almonds = 5 blocks + 5 fat blocks

3PM 2 cups 2% yogurt, 1 oz almonds, 1 apple, sprinkle sesame seeds = 2 blocks + extra carb + 5 extra fat blocks

5PM 1 cup milk = 1 block

7PM 22 almonds (1 oz) 14 blocks of fat

8PM 4 oz chicken leg with skin, 2 cups veg, 1/4 cup potato, bit of coconut milk, 1/3 tablespoon butter, 1/2 nectar bar = 3 blocks + 3 blocks fat

10PM 1 cups milk, 4 oz chicken leg with skin, 2 cups veg, bit of coconut milk, 1/3 tablespoon butter, 1 non-alcohol beer = 4 blocks

Well, only 16 blocks, but I did manage to eat a lot of extra fat, so we shall see what the scale says tomorrow.

Way to go Max!
You are very inspiring. It is useful to see your progress monitored so thoroughly. Thanks for being so helpful and earnest.
Do you think some of the fast weight loss could be possibly be water weight?
Keep up!!

Yes, I think it is either a hydration of inadequate carb issue, which is related.
