Before I stopped walking in mid July I used to walk long distances every single day. I only stopped for a month and a half, is it normal then that the body has to readjust? I thought that doing nothing for a month wouldn't have affected my body that much..
@Sunset011 When I go on and off in training then my weight fluctuates as well. Body grabs onto water when exercising again, perhaps you sometimes even feel your feet, ankles etc swelling a little. That's what walking often does.
Depends... Muscle tends to degrade over about 4-6 weeks, so likely you lost some.. and as for your cardio ability that starts to decline after a week or so, your body will have to readjust... another factor i missed out was heat, if its hot and you are not drinking enough water you will store water, so make sure you drink what you need (it won't make the scales make you bigger, your body regulates how much water it needs)
Yeah, I'm actually not drinking enough and I can tell I'm retaining water because my ring fits tighter than usual and when I wake up I have indentations in the skin from bedsheets and they don't go away immediately
You are better off doing measurements... i know everyone says dont trust scales.. its true! but i tend to use the scales only as a "trend"... so this week my lowest was 200lbs, two weeks ago it was 202lbs.. then next week i might see 199! never had that before.. also if you stay the same weight but notice your jeans no longer fit.. well thats progress!
I eat less than 1000 and burn at least 500 a day.. I think that's a deficit for sure.
No it isn't. Defeciet is burning more than you take in. If you eat 1000 calories and burn 1500 that calorie deficet
I do agree with this, You need a life style change rather than a "fad" else you will drift back... If you want to eat at such a deficit then if you are really hungry then please eat, listen to your body it knows whats good for it! :)
