Every night I get up two/three times to P.
I think part of my problem is that I get those snacky urges in the early to mid evening and instead of
I don't think I have any medical issues.. it's a concept of fluid in... fluid out And trying to not take in any more calories in the late evening. The scale has been bouncing around + - 3 lbs, but I am still in onederland so it doesn't bug me. Getting past that number was a biggie for me.
So back to my midnight runs..
The other problem is that by the second or third trip.. I start to wake up .. and of course I am thinking with all of this P'ing, I am going to jump on the scale.
And then I start to do the math for the in between weighing and realize that on average I lose about 0.7 lbs per P. So on an average night I will drop 2 lbs from "last call" to early rise.
Can you believe that I am doing math in the middle of the night.. I even started to think about the specific gravity of P to determine if it was truly a 1cc to 1 ml ratio. (don't ask.. this is the crap that occupies my mind during the day and it haunts me in my sleep).
So here I sit before 5 am, with an empty bladder.. waiting for the coffee to brew..
In no way can I eat anything solid.. that isn't possible till around 10 am or so..
I am finding I can only truly eat between 10 am till about 5 pm, after that .. I tend to tighten back up again, and am taking in only soft foods.. and then back to liquids.
It is very strange.. but this has been a consistent cycle for me since my last fill.. It's like the store is open to eat solids only between 10 to 5.. and then on to liquids.
The band has certainly provided good discipline with my eating, and I am fairly regiment Monday through Friday, on the weekend, I tend to be a bit more exploratory, and will eat different food selections (I don't ban anything from my food list) I just don't go crazy (mainly because the band won't allow that).. and I have to respect that part of the deal (or you know what happens).
I have been a bit lapse with the exercise, but have targeted getting in three days of cardio this week. That should be fairly doable.. I have a B trip all next week, with the highlight of hitting the Pottery Barn outlet on the way home.. love that store (as it also carries Williams Sonoma stuff).
So that's my P story..
btw, the specific gravity of normal urine is between 1.020 to 1.028, which means it is a little heavier than water (makes sense)..
