Does it show up 3 days later????

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Big question to my spark friends! So you exercise alot- do the result show up 3 days later? You eat more than you should have.... does it show up 3 days later? I've heard this 3 day rule before but not sure where it came from and my mom said today that my exercising this weekend will show up Monday or Tuesday, hence 3 days later. Well if so, then I should have a fantastic weigh in on Monday mornng! We shall see!

Anyone have any feedback on this 3 day rule or mystery number? How about your own personal experiences with it? Thanks SP Friends!!

    I'm inclined to believe in the 3 day rule this week. Looks like last weekend caught up with me mid week! BUT....I've been working really hard at staying on track this week so I'm hoping that payoff arrives soon too! emoticon

    If I eat badly, it shows up the next morning on the scale. If I exercise the way I should, it shows up on the scale slowly but surely.

    I haven't heard of the 3 day rule, but it does help to know that it is possible.

    Hugs, keep up the good work. emoticon

    It's a lovely idea- instant feedback. But I suspect it's one of those sayings which may have some scientific basis, but isn't really true. I think you'd have to look at a longer period of time to have a true idea of how you're doing. But certainly water retention would show up in less than 3 days, so who knows? You just keep up the exercising and the good eating- you'll see those results! Sometimes it kinda sneaks up on the day I pulled an old pair of jeans off after forgetting to unbutton and unzip them!

    I haven't heard that before, but I would be interested if it were true. I have read that you're weight loss or gain won't show up right away, but who knows how long it will be....maybe 3 days. Wish I could give some insight. Hope you have a great weigh in Monday as well. Good Luck! emoticon
