Can You Believe I Lost Eight Pounds in One Day?

Weighed in at 150 pounds this morning, down 4 pounds from my last post on Wednesday.

So hey! I finally reached my weight loss goal of 150!

Well, it's sort of anti-climactic. Believe it or not, I had gained weight earlier this week, going up as high as 158 yesterday morning. So technically, I lost 8 pounds in a day? Is that even possible?

Well here's what happened. Wednesday, I went out with some friends to a tavern in the evening, and I had two 22oz bottles of beer. Afterwards, we hit up a mexican restaurant and I had a large margarita. The next morning I had gained weight to 156 pounds.

Then Thursday, I took a motorcycle ride with another friend, and ended up at a bar where I had one 22oz bottle of beer. After that, I picked up the wife and we went out to a Oggi's Pizza Brewery, and I had two 16oz glasses of beer, and a pizza.

So Friday morning, I weighed in at 158 pounds. I figured I still had a lot of water in me. So I limited my water intake. In fact, I didn't drink much of anything. The only liquid I had was 1/2 cup of kefir in the morning, which is basically a drinkable yogurt. Then in the evening I had a pint of frozen yogurt. Otherwise, I spent that whole day pissing all the water out of me.

But the frozen yogurt was a bad call. I guess it didn't mix well with the 4oz of beef jerky I had in the afternoon. It gave me the runs that night. So all in all, I pissed out the beer I drank the past two days, and then lost a bunch more water from the diarrhea.

That's how I lost 8 pounds in one day.

So this weight loss is actually about a loss of 6-7 pounds of water, and then another 1-2 pounds of fat, just by keeping my calories below 800.

I'm not sure if that really counts as true weight loss, since much of it was losing water.
