I was going to post last night to declare that I do believe 150 may be my 'I could live with it if I had to but I don't want to' weight. I felt smaller. My clothes fit bigger. I was sure I had a big drop and I would be below the 150 mark this morning.
The reason I'm posting is because not only did I not clear that milestone, but I seem to have inched UP ever so slightly.
However, here is why I'm sharing: I know that in actuality, that is impossible. I've told this to clients so many times! If you are eating 500 calories per day, drinking your water and sleeping well, there's no way that it is possible to gain weight on this program, no matter how it appears. Hang in there!
This is my 'hang in there' post for my own sanity.
I know that a two zero days, even followed by what appears to be a gain will be followed by a big drop. I know that if I were taking my measurements, I'd likely see what I currently feel...that I am shrinking.
I had sauerkraut two days in a row, an then tomatoes last night for my veggie. Maybe that water still needs to be released? I haven't been sleeping well, last night mainly because my leg ached and it kept me awake wondering if I could continue to do my job because this is just using muscles I don't usually use, or I'd have to stop because hours of sitting is backing up circulation in my leg. If it is my leg and there is water backing up, that would show up on the scale too. I'm going to try to make today a very short day and get a lot of walking in, and hopefully tomorrow is my last day of dictation.
What gives me hope is that I see my collar bones and shoulders with more distinction again. My hands feel like mine again and I could probably comfortably put my rings back on. My ankles and feet look slender again. My curves are far more noticeable, which I know isn't just me deluding myself because my husband noticed too.
I will keep doing what I'm doing because I know it works. (I am ever so glad I wasn't weighing on the Wii yet!)
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.
