Whew! That keeps me going. That means down .8 in the last week. At least it's progress! If it was just maintaining or gaining, I wasn't going to keep trying. But not only is it progress, it's significant. If I can do that for a few more days, I'd be happy! I'd be much happier if I could continue it for another week or two and reach that goal.
What I'm thinking is that maybe those adjustments I made that worked for a week only while I was near my TOM. I continued them...sort of. I had the 'chocolate' every night, and the spoonful of peanut butter on the days I walked and yesterday (because I actually was hungry...really hungry...by 3 pm). But when I did, I'd skip either the fruit or veggie; both to keep the calorie count closer to where it should be, and because I'm just sick of my selections.
I do believe I've just got to stop messing around, renew my commitment not experiment with this if I'm going to get anywhere. Keep going it is! (At least for another day.)
Seriously, this nails it. I'm not stopping. My work scale puts me almost TWENTY lb. more than I want to be, and I do not know how that is possible.
The good news is, I put on a pair of pants I love in a size 8 and I shrunk past them before I could even wear them once! Good thing I bought a pair in a size 6 as well. (I loved them that much!)
The other good news is that even though the work scale has me at 9 lb. more than my analog, it also shows my fat percentage as decent. I'm in the 'green' albeit at the higher end.
So that made me wonder if perhaps all that bike riding and yoga and hiking last summer built muscle; maybe I weigh more, but the reason I feel closer to my goal weight than the scale shows (both in body and clothes) is that I really am smaller, but have muscle that weighs more?
I can hope.
I struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I tried everything to lose weight. Yes, I did 'eat less, move more' repeatedly, convinced that doing the same thing over and over would someone yield different results. Desperate, having diligently done all the 'right' things and being told by several doctors that there was nothing wrong with me except that I wasn't trying hard enough, in 2009 I tried what seemed crazy: Dr. Simeons Hcg protocol. I lost 85 lb.
