I rounded up to 154 this morning. Looking less and less like dehydrated low spikes; I think I really am in the low 150s. It just seems like I went through the mid 150s too fast. I guess I was doing/eating something that made me retain a lot of water when I was upper 150s not long ago.

@Mountaindewed - Yes, that has to be fluids; it would take 28,000 excess calories to gain 8 pounds.

I felt horrible all day. I ended up eating around 1000 calories or so. Iíve been peeing water every 15 minutes, and not drinking much of anything. Iím thinking I'll see a pretty drastic decrease in the scale tomorrow, but Iím not sure. Iíll just have to wait and see.

I went a little overboard with late snacking last night. I did 90 minutes of arc trainer this morning and logged it as yesterday and just have to stick to my calorie budget today as if I had no exercise.

Welcome! I always liked getting the first few under (or out from under) my belt. It made me feel like I had a "lead to protect" and was really doing this.

I am currently enjoying my longest period of successful maintenance ever after losing over 65 pounds. I took my BMI from 34 to under 25 and have kept it below 25 for ten and a half months. I track calories; everything I eat, every day. I did not stop after I got to goal. I have had several ups and downs in weight over the past few decades. I just turned 60 in the best shape I have been since my 20s, largely driven by fear of being old and unhealthy. Now I will just be old.

Thank you for the warm welcome and sharing what works for you. I have lost weight in the past and kept it off for 15 years. 3-4 years ago I gained weight very rapidly and I tipped the scales at that 202.5. I couldnít believe I weighed that much when I stepped on the scale. It was so easy to lose the weight when I was 23... but not so much now (Iíll be 40 in a couple months) thanks to age and women hormone issues. I am getting discouraged at how slow it can be, but Iím going to keep pushing forward.

After using the bathroom nonstop yesterday while barely drinking anything after 2AM, and also eating a low calorie diet, I weighed myself this morning and I was 147.6. I still feel kind of sick from everything though, but at least the water weight is gone. My calories today will equal to about 1150-1200.

Tomorrow's weigh in might be ugly. I went *way* over today for no good reason. I can do the math and I know when the dust settles it might be a quarter pound, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a 2 pound spike.

As predicted, a spike of a couple of pounds - 154.8 this morning. I usually don't track tenths, but noting it is still barely in the bottom half of the 150s (my maintenance range).
