No fair

I've been counting kcals and exercise and have been, on average, a few thousand kcals under maintenance for the last 2-3 weeks.  Thing is, I did see a dip in weight in the first week, but then a bloaty, post-takeaway (still within kcals!) day just hasn't really dropped away again since.  And I'm still bloaty, pretty badly.

I've never suffered from bloaty in the past and I've not changed diet consistency recently.  So I have no idea what's going on there.  And it's making me grumpy.  I really will look like a sofa for the next sprint tri.  Meh.


  1. I feel your pain. I look like a beach ball at present with wobble and bloat. I have no idea why, and it's been going on for the past couple of weeks. In my case I think it's a mix of some sort of virus, mild gastritis and too much coffee and general stress.

    No help at all. But sympathies.

  2. I can empathise with the bloat - I thought I had found a way to eat that suited me but it seems not :-/ Hope you find a solution but 100% positive you will not look like a sofa!
