Default I hope so

I hope so, cos I am thirsty like I wandered in the desert for days. So a 100 oz or so being downed every day on average, and oddly, I pee maybe 30-40.
I hope water is displacing fat. And soon it should go too.
Thanks.
Srinath.

I hope some of the water is gone, cos in just about a week, I lost 14 lbs.
So my advice is - the painful part where you shed the fat has no visible reward. Then at the time you get frustrated, your body decides to dump all the water if you stayed on the plan. That can happen in as little as 1 week like in my case. 1 more belt size down and 14 lbs down.

Thanks.
Srinath.

That's great to hear Srinath. Congratulations with sticking to it, as yes, it can seem discouraging.
I'm marching onward as well... no real sucesses yet other than maybe a little better fitting pants! 4 weeks in I am feeling marvellous in so many other ways!

I just came across this great article (even though its over a year old).
The writer weighed himself every hour (yes, hour) over a three-day weekend, and then analysed the results and discussed the reasons behind those results, complete with graph.

Why-your-bathroom-scales-are-lying-to-you-and-how-to-find-your-true-weight]

The final part, about how to gauge your true weight, won't be particularly useful for losers, but might be good for maintainers. Its almost enough to make me want to buy some scales for myself!

I have an official weigh in day/time. I've been officially weighing myself, in the same spot, on the sale scales on sunday right after I wake up and hit the bathroom, wearing only a pair of shorts. Now that I brought those scales to my current house - I am standing on it every day ~ random times, but all that does not count. Its now reading 191, and its on a carpet with crawl space (this scale used to read 4lbs lower when on concrete with vinyl vs carpet) but, sunday it read 195-196. So my weight for this week is 196 (about the same as last weeks 197).
Weighing yourself every hour can be entertaining, and frustrating to say the least. LOL.

Thanks.
Srinath.

Some days I'm quite firm and tight, others I'm super wobbly. Scales fluctuating around this time.

Bloody hate the wobbly days, and try to keep focused that it is water.

Down 30lb in 2.5 months.

I'm type 2 diabetic.

From Dr. Robert Lustig:
"The best way to determine whether or not you've got metabolic dysfunction or not is your waist circumference, not your weight. I tell people, the scale lies more than you do. When you stand on the scale, you're measuring four compartments at once. Bone, more is better. Muscle, more is better. Subcutaneous fat, big butt fat, if you will, turns out more is better....And the fourth compartment is the visceral, or the big belly fat. So, as far as I'm concerned, it's not about weight, it's about waist. Measuring waist circumference is probably the single-best thing you can do for yourself. It's cheap, and when you exercise, you don't lose weight, you actually gain weight because you're gaining muscle. But what you're doing is, you're making mitochondria, and you're losing that visceral fat, and that's why exercise improves health, not because of weight loss."

Full transcript at: http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2...d-obesity-and-d

There have been large studies that a Waist half Height is the best predictor of long term health. That should be everyone's goal, not BMI or scale weight.

This thread, old and new additions, has been incredibly helpful.

My thanks to all of you experienced and knowledgable low-carbers who have shared your research and personal discoveries. I feel much better prepared to face periods without weight loss (as measured by the scale) with patience and understanding for my complex body doing what it needs to do.

I've benefitted so much from those of you who have posted encouragement and research over the years, I have read back almost decades in the threads -- thanks for your dedication in supporting others.
