The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    I also just weighed myself. Two weeks ago at this time I weighed 165. I just weighed in at 150.0 on the dot. I have no idea what made this weight loss. I'm still eating ~4000 cals a day.

    Haha, thats EXACTLY what my father said. But, I weighed myself twice that day, once at the gym (with clothes on I weighed 155) and when I weighed myself at home right before a shower it was 150 on the dot. I just weighed myself (I've been eating most of the evening and staying hydrated) and I'm at 151.2. I'm going to get back on GOMAD/Bako shakes, and if somehow my weight goes to less than 145 over the next couple days I'll make a doctors appointment for some blood work or something because I'm legitimately scared at this insanely rapid weight loss.

    My weight is fluxuating pretty randomly I've gotten back up to 162 and back down to 155 in the morning after a steamy piss. Definitely headed back in the right direction though!
