Default Does this happen to you?

Hi all,

I've recently recommitted to LC/HF eating to get myself back on track. I have an old Bowflex tread climber that I use for 30 minutes 3-4 times a week. I also do 30 minutes of yoga after each session on the tread climber. The last few months I also do 1-2 hikes per week for an average of 5 miles each on rough terrain. Overall, this all feels good for my body. However, I definitely see impact in terms of weight fluctuations. I know its glycogen stores and related water and it does release after a couple of rest days but it definitely is discouraging sometimes. Do any of you see this as well or have any advice? I make sure to get my water in and watch my carbs...

Yep this happens to me for sure. When I do strength training I hold on to a couple extra lbs for 1-3 days, when I do aerobic activity I usually drop an extra lb the next day. Regardless of temporary gains/losses, I still have an overall downward trend of almost 2 lbs per week (I'm in week 5 but this is not my first go-around).

I gain a bit of weight the day after doing squats or dead lifts.

Same, after pounding on my body in sport and I'm sore, up a as much as a couple Kg - Just make that your new weight and be surprised when it comes down, then goes back up, then goes down again...

having your weight fluctuate like that shows that you are putting in the work
