Ovulation is over - wondering where this months whoosh will take me

I was not happy that my weight got to 175 and over during my ovulation water weight gain these last few days. I really had hoped that this particular weight was gone forever and ever, but, alas, there it was yesterday and today.

I knew it was water weight as I was eating right and exercising, but hormones will do what hormones are going to do and for me that means adding water weight. The upside of it all is that in a day or two I should start to see the weight drop and the question is - where will it fall too?

I am dreaming about getting out of the 170s if even only for a few days until I start gaining for my period, but... realistically, it won't. According to my little gizmo, I've been averaging a calorie deficit of about 500 calories a day. So, that would mean about 4 pounds for the month. So, that will get me, maybe, to about 170-171.

At this point, seeing a 4 pound drop a month, unless I really hussle at the gym is about the most I can expect. My metabolism has changed as it has adapted to this weight loss regime and I'm much closer to my ideal weight. My body fat percentage is under 30% (around 27-29%), so it will just take time and patience.

I'm just tired of seeing the 170s. I've been here a long, long, long time and I'm ready to say "adios" to that middle 7 number.

Stats for 3/6/12:

Highest weight: 275  Now: 175
