Double Joy At My 2nd Weigh In

Well today was the end of week 2 and my second weigh in. After losing 14lbs in the first week (albeit getting weighed on day 9), i was hoping for a decent loss this week as well (albeit getting weighed only 6 days since the last one), so I was happy with another 5 lb loss. 19 lbs in 2 weeks is unrivalled by any other diet, I just love LT.

So for my double whammy bonus prize. When I first got weighed the Pharmacy said I was 18 1/2 stone, last week I lost a stone and they said I was 17 1/2 stone, and this is how they wrote it in my card. Today they told me I was 16.9 1/2 stone and that I had lost 5 lb. Curious I said that I have lost more as the difference between 17 1/2 stone and 16.9 1/2 stone is indeed 11 1/2lb. Imagine my surprise when she tole me I didn't weigh 18 1/2 stone at first weigh in but 18 stone and 1/2 a pound. Likewise last week I weighed 17 stone and a 1/2 pound. Making it a loss of 5lb this week and meaning that I wasn't as heavy as I thought when I started, which means my goal of 15.7stone is acheivable in the next 3 weeks!

Now that is a bonus!!

Well done. That's a flying start. BTW, I copied the below from Jenhen's 'Exercise' thread as I wasn't sure if you'd see it. Can you advise me please? Thanks.

As long as you are hydrated before you exercise and properley hydrate afterwards you will be fine. Yes you retain water, but only for a few hours, you wake up the next morning with it having fell off again (if you hydrated properley afterwards).
If I wanted to exercise first thing in the morning, which is really the only time I'll be able to fit it in, how much will I have to drink and how soon before exercising to be hydrated enough? Am thinking of starting the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. Feel ill just thinking about it! :eek:

nice loss and really nice bonus as well - 3 weeks will be a doddle for you - good luck xx
Thanks for your great support, it really is uplifting coming on this forum.

Cate, believe it or not, the morning time is the best time to exercise and on an empty stomach wether your on LT or not!

You will not be dehydrated because as you sleep your body keeps some water to function. Hydrate properley the evening before and take some water in a bottle with you, sipping through your exercise routine. You must focus on hydrating properley and immediatly afterwards though. I cannot explain the feeling of being in Ketosis and having all your endorphines released during exercise at the same time, I feel really good afterwards, add the effect that you know all the exercise you have just done has been burnt straight off your body and it really is a great feeling. Your physical performance may be effected gradually as to maintain a high physical performance you are actually supposed to be on a high protein, high fat, low carb diet. Did I say high fat, yes I did and of course I mean good fat that you find in meats etc. Remember when you refeed that not all fat is bad fat and these are easily explained on the internet.

I hope that was of some help, I am by no means an expert but hope that helped a bit.

Good luck !!!
