So why am I even posting today? Pretty much as a 'rah, rah' pep talk for myself. Or encouragement to 'get back on that horse when you screw up' or 'keep on keepin' on' sort to yadda yadda. Because I ate no more than 500 calories yesterday and there is NO WAY you can actually gain weight on 500 calories. Right?
I did have sauerkraut yesterday, which I shouldn't have since I didn't now if I'd recouped from Friday yet and the salt was likely to make me retain water. It may also just be that I have weighed everywhere from 5 am to 9:30 am and places in between for the last several days. .2 could just reflect that. Who knows? I just know I have to keep going and see where the averages fall.
Valentines Day will be the soonest I would stop. The first of March is the furthest I'd push it I think.
Last night was the first day I felt really very hungry. At 10:30 pm I was still working on a project that required my full attention and I was just too hungry. Almost painfully hungry. I wanted a big scoop of peanut butter! Really. It was that specific. But it wasn't a craving. It was a painful, gnawing hunger.
I had a coconut oil 'chocolate' and 8-10 oz. water and went to bed.
I did mix new Hcg yesterday, and I did not do a skip day. I measured the product I had left in the bottle I'd been using and their was a week's worth still in it! I'm glad I mixed new though, because I think perhaps I'm running on not so much. And it's not like I'd be adding that extra week onto what I'm already doing. I hope the new product works wonders.
Well, at work today I forgot to eat all of my food. I ended up eating my cucumber slices on the way home so I could still have my veggie at dinner and not have everything all lumped up or end up skipping one by default. It is almost 5 pm and I'm seriously just not hungry. I suspect DH will want to go for a walk when he gets home. I might if it's not windy. The temperature is moderate; 37* with tomorrow supposedly up to 40* or better. Without wind, it would be like spring. With wind, it could still be chilly. We'll see.
But I am once again feeling energetic and completely satisfied with the amount of food.
DH and I did a couple of mile walk-n-talk and I think I know what's going on here. I think after the wine, even though I drank lots of water, the big drop reflected dehydration. The gains have simply been indicative of RE-hydration. I may very well be releasing fat in increments that are smaller than the weight from the water. These might have seemed significant if I could see them. But I can't because they are hidden in the water.
That feels right anyway.
