I weighed in on Friday but I didn't record it and I didn't share because it was a gain of more than 2 lbs. You can't gain 2 lbs in a week! So I'm thinking that 144.0 was not real, that maybe I was dehydrated? Or maybe the higher weight is due to retention from my period? Who knows.
What I DO know is that I ended up joining the MMA gym, and to went to my complementary fitness assessment. Basically you stand on a fancy scale and it does your body fat %. I'll post a picture of my print out, but basically it said this...
Weight 150 (6 lbs more than the last time I weighed in)
Body Fat 26.2% (3% more than my at home scale)
Fat to lose 11.8 lbs.
ELEVEN POINT EIGHT POUNDS OF FAT!!!!
I verified the weight at home, and determined that it must be caused by a combination of my period and drinking a lot of water. My scale still said my bf% was in the 23% range, so now I'm not sure what to trust. It's Monday morning now and my stomach still feels off so I won't weigh in until Thursday.
I guess all I can do is wait for my next assessment in 6 weeks, and bust my butt until then. I mean, my goal is 140 and so if I lost all fat in that weight, I would be really close to what the machine said I should be.
