YIKES!! Christmas-time eating & your WEIGHT!!
Ever seen Supersize-Me? How much did he put on in that month? (Answer: 25lbs).
Well I haven't been to McD's or eaten any "junk food", but I just gained an ASTONISHING 17lbs IN 2 1/2 WEEKS!! YIKES!
I weigh myself regularly and the first week of December (I'll say the 8th), I weighed 164lbs. This is about normal for me, I'd say I've varied +/- 3lbs over the last 5 years or so. I'm 5'6 and stocky with low body fat and I've always had a fast metabolism. Anyhow, last January (I'd been ill for a while so was slightly underweight), I wrote this here at RFD in a thread about weight-training:
I weighed myself earlier this evening -- and had to check it on a 2nd pair of scales (confirmed 1st was correct) .. post-Christmas-eating, I NOW WEIGH 181lbs -- as I said at the top, that's an ASTONISHING 17lbs IN 2 1/2 WEEKS!!I maxxed at 175lbs (@5'6) back in '94 when I left highschool but since then I haven't worked out for any longer than a solid month, and probably only 4 or 5 months total in 10 years. It may well have been due to my 'early' training, but my body is very responsive to physical activity and I get asked all the time if I work out - I'm currently 158lbs and less than 4% body fat.
Anyone else noticed a dramatical weight increase?!
