Well, my crazy week of dieting has come to an end. At some points last weekend I weighed myself. I got 199 and 201. That was probably after I ate and drank quite a bit. I just weighed myself, and depending where on the floor I put the scale, I came in between 189 and 191. I'd have to say a few pounds of that was just sheer liquid, since I've been drinking so little.
I cannot continue what I've done this week. I probably had less than 700 caories each day, excluding hamburger night when I had a whopping ~900. That just isn't safe. And, I don't want my body to get used to so little. But I did want to lose a good few pounds for a nice emotional boost. It seems to have worked, and I am very happy at the outcome.
Next week I'll probably go for 1600 calories a day. When eating non-snack foods, that can be quite a bit fof food. So, I should be happy with it. My only fear is that I'll hold lots of liquid next week and gain a pound or two. But, if so, so be it, overall I'll be ahead.
