Well...here I am...I knew it was going to happen.
I knew last night that the scale would be up this morning...and it was...3 pounds. I know most of it is water weight...I mean...How can you gain 3 pounds in one day? I guess you could, but it would be pretty damn hard.
When I woke up this morning, I felt it in my hands and feet and I had a headache - almost like a hangover.
But I am frustrated. I listed my starting weight as 285 - it's probably closer to the 289 number of the previous, but who knows. In a 2 weeks, I'm down less than 2 pounds...and I'm hung up on it today. I will never get the weight off at this rate. I've just got to stick with it. The other thing that irritates me is that I don't have a thyroid and due to thyroid cancer, I stay hyperthyroid, so I should be thin. What the hell is up with that?!?!?!?!
Over the last two weeks, I've been good. Last evening was the only 'setback' and it wasn't horrendous. In trying to find an "excuse" for this, I wonder if eating out so much has a big impact on my efforts - even though I make good decisions when I do eat out.
I'm going to make a big effort this week to eat at home. Perhaps this will help. Besides, it will save money too! Since I'm going to eat at home, I'm also going to more accurately track what I'm eating - I've been tracking, but it's been spotty - more as a check to make sure I'm maintaining the low sugar intake.
For breakfast this morning...late morning, I had an omelette with bacon, onions, mushrooms, and some cheese. Low carb, no sugar. I also had some coffee with cream - perhaps a tsp...and yes, it's a real tsp.
When I got hungry this afternoon, I made blueberry smoothie with my normal ingredients, except the blueberries replaced the strawberries. The blueberries were whole blueberries with nothing else in it. So there's some sugar from the blueberries, but it's not added sugar. I also had 4 little mozzarella balls in herbed olive oil.
