Re: watermelon?

almost impossible to gain 9lbs over the weekend, youd have eat almost 35000 extra calories and no way you got that from a watermelon!

Re: watermelon?

Watermelon is great for you chevy. Low Cal and Very Filling for the amount of calories you get. It probably had nothing to do with the weight gain.

It in all likelyhood Water weight...you must have been very low on water previous to the weekend.

Re: watermelon?

I'd second the water weight, chevy. Watermelon does contain a LOT of water!!

See whether most of it does not come off pretty soon.

Re: watermelon?

oh ok thanks guys.
I guess maybe it is water/fluids??
..I worked out vigersously this last week and might have dehydrated myself a little bit.?
I was supprise when I weigh...because I have been good /faithful as far as counting my calories/working out ect,,ect,,,
I ate watermelon Friday Sat and Sunday..and yeah more than I should have...I love ''watermelon'' especially a good cold red meat sweet Black Dimond.
I guess I did eat way to much of it...I am not going to weigh myself this week(to chicken) but my clothes still fell bout the same..so I hopeing it was just water....I'll weigh next week and let you guys know.

Re: watermelon?

maybe you used a different weighing scale.. or your weighing scale got broken.. i'm not sure, can you really gain 9lbs just from eating watermelons? even though 9lbs could be water weight?
