    4/22

    BW = 210(!)

    With the family gone for Spring Break, Friday was beer and wine day and Saturday was pizza day. As a result, today is water weight day. Maybe, maybe 1/2 pound of actual weight gain, but 9.5 of water and waste. All day yard work yesterday. Looking forward to weighing 200 on Thursday.

    4/24

    BW=203. So just because I am keying in to water retention and carbs and whatnot, I weighed myself several times yesterday and stayed on track with probably 1-1.5 gallons of water. At about 9:30 last night, I weighed 210. Took a very hot shower for 15 minutes and weighed 208. Even after four cups of coffee this morning and a few sips at the drinking fountain during my workout, I'm down to 203 as of 9:15 am, or seven pounds less in 12 hours. I still expect to drop another three by this time tomorrow.

    4/28

    BW = 203 (200 on 4/26)

    I dunno. This is probably within a few % of as lean as I have ever been post-puberty. Math says I can't have stalled out, but I am not losing much. Plan is to go through 5/9, that'll be 12 weeks of a diet. Then I'm taking at least two weeks off from the gym and counting calories, within reason. With 10 days to go I guess I'm hoping to be at 199 without too much funny business.

    Did yardwork most of Friday and half of yesterday until my back went out. I thought I might not be able to go but I woke up feeling cautiously OK. Weird since turning wrong or coughing would have shattered me into a million pieces yesterday afternoon. I had been weed whacking and ran out of string. When I bent down to pick up clippers to cut the string, I had that shot of pain that says "don't move." Tried again and same thing. Then I spent 45 seconds figuring out how to stand fully upright again. As long as I only turned left for the rest of the day I was OK. If you've had your back go out, you know about rolling gingerly off the couch to your knees and then navigating the long process of standing up carefully. This one was not awful but still crippling, yesterday anyway.

    BW=199. After a weird stall my weight is moving again. I can see the difference and you can just kind of feel it when your body is burning as opposed to staying the same.
