Not sure if it will stick, especially with the weekend coming up, but hey, It looks good to me right now!!

Z. . . I'm really curious how your experiment turns out. Then, you can break it down into laymans terms! I'm a dummy sometimes!

Oh so close to the 220's!!

Had a stressful day yesterday, but it ended with several compliments! My boss told me after he left my office that it looked like I had lost weight, when my daughter hugged me good night she said "You're getting so small!", and my hubby made a comment that I can't repeat here. So overall it was a good day.

crazy schedule... I ended up waking up late, and had to eat quick and rush out before I could weigh today. I'm looking forward to hitting the weights hard this morning. I'm starting to see some results from the weight training, and I wouldn't mind missing my target weight by virtue of being too ripped to weigh 155 pounds.

3/1 - 280.6
3/2 - 278.4
3/3 - 279.0
3/4 - disappeared due to 36 hour turnaround day
3/5 - 277.6
3/6 - 282
3/8 - 283.6

Hit the gym yesterday, and the first purported benefit of a carb refeed seems, to me, to be well debunked:

Running on glycogen hasn't made my workouts more explosive, or improved my endurance in any way. In fact, I feel more tired during the workout - like I'm going to hit the wall sooner.

Furthermore, I feel more tired more often - even when not exercising. I'm working nights, 10pm to 8am. The last few days, I've been plain exhausted by 5am (leaving me 3 hours of abject exhaustion to push through)

It's worth pointing out too, that a 24 hour refeed turned into a 3 day vacation. I don't consider myself to have particularly faint willpower, but at the end of day 1, I knew I couldn't go back to LC until I'd crossed ice cream off my list. And a burrito - I finally live like 50 miles from Mexico and I can't even eat Mexican food. And a full sugar chocolate and caramel breve...

I'm eating kielbasa and eggs with cheese for breakfast today, and my half and half latte will be sugar free. But I'm definitely going to be paying the price, in terms of withdrawal symptoms. and since I'm not in ketosis right now - how easy would it be to just have a burger, and worry about getting back to it this weekend?

Too easy.

While the numbers of the coming weeks will tell the tale that I was interested in learning, the non-numerical data seems to tell the entire story: the refeed carries an unusually high probability of long-term backfire.

Still - it will be interesting to see how the rest of the story plays out.

3/9 - 281.4 <- probably just a day or two away from my previous weight - at which point I'll start a 4 week timer to calculate pre and post-feed weight loss velocity. I'm trying not to enter this with any preconceived notions - whatever happens is what I will report. It's the same approach that brought me to LC in the first place.

No assumptions, just experimentation and observation.

Hello all. I have been crazy busy this week but should be back in the US by Tuesday. Eating out every day has been a challenge so I might wait a day or two after I get home to weigh.

Judy- You are doing great this month!

Z- I will look forward to see what your re-feed stats reveal.
