This morning my scale said 172.2. It also, however, gave me a body fat reading that indicated that I had not gained fat since last week but had actually lost fat. I did a fast run yesterday and an hour-long swim workout, and my muscles felt like they had been hit with baseball bats. My excuse about the sore muscles retaining fluid... that's the one I'm going with today. I have to admit that having weights consistently in the 180s for the last few weeks is making me a little panicky. I don't know how accurate these body-fat scales are, but mine does seem to indicate a downward trend in body fat and an upward trend in lean body mass. So that's the small sliver of hope that I am clinging to.
