    April GW: 140 lbs

    April Weigh-Ins:
    4/1: 148.8
    4/2: NWI
    4/3: NWI
    4/4: 148.2 | Hoping to be back at 145.6 by next Monday!
    4/5: 147.4
    4/6: 146.2 | I'm definitely not complaining about my losses, but I am used to multiple 1.5- to 2-lb whooshes during my first week of LC, and I don't seem to be getting them this time around. Might be linked to it being my fertile week. In any case, I am definitely less bloated, so bring on 145.6 or less tomorrow, please!
    4/7: 145.6 | Got my wish! It took a whole 10 days to get back here, so I need to keep that in mind.

    LC is a one time thing for whoosh. It will help you slowly lose fat also but the big whoosh is due to dumping glycogen and the water that is used to store it. Once gone you get no more whooshes and once you eat carbs back, you get the opposite affect and will overnight gain a couple of lbs. I think it is a good tool to help with slow fat loss, but the whooshes are due to what I described and won't repeat unless you gain it back by eating carbs and then lose it again eating LC. You can see that affect in Brenda's old LC cycling. It always gets her back to her low but the succeeding lows do show a small downward trend also which is the long-term affect. Good luck.

    Bob is right about the whooshes, whenever I have a big loss its after my high carb days.

    Thanks, ladies! I can't wait to get to 139! Hopefully by the end of the month since I know I will gain during my period in 2 weeks.

    Keep it up and your April goal is in the bag. I see you in the 130's before month's end.

    Britt those numbers are so awesome! I agree, 130's are right around the corner!

    I need to kick it up a notch and get it in gear so I can see the 140's by the end of the month. My consistency has just not been there. The up and down has got to end. 140's by the end of the month or bust. I am nearing the 30 day mark in my 60 day goal to reach 145 pounds. I will commence my 30-day countdown come Saturday.
