Monday and Tuesday weren't good days for me. I had a lot on my mind, very emotional and add the fact that on Monday, I was up .2 lbs and on Tuesday, I was up .6 lbs....I was really emotional.
My support, Stacey called me on Monday to get my morning weight and I told her that I was up .2 lbs. We started trying to figure out why.
The only thing we can figure is (1) my body is resisting or trying to plateau (2) lack of sleep plays a big role, (3) when you stay up later, you tend to drink more liquids which the body doesn't have time to process and get rid of by the time you get up the next morning, (4) having the same protein for both meals and eating the same fruits in the same day....you need to vary them. I have varied them up until this week. I only had about 5 hours sleep Sunday night to Monday morning, had beef for both meals on Monday and Tuesday, increased my salt intake and had apples for both snack on those days as well.
With other things on my mind, I wasn't able to go to sleep once I got in the bed...which was very late to begin with.
Monday night, I was in bed and asleep by 11 PM and up at 6:30 AM. This is good for me but might not be good enough on my weight loss.
Over the weekend, we stayed up late but also slept in...so I got 8 hours sleep and lost 1.6 lbs in 2 days. Plus, we were outside, walking and riding bikes.
My current weight is 168.6. I gained .8 lbs over my lowest weight during this process. I am trying to not stress out about it but it is frustrating when you are trying to follow the program, not eat all the yummy foods that you miss and still gain. Ughhh!
I am counting down the days to being able to add other foods back into my lifestyle and having more variety.
At this point...as of Tuesday morning...I've lost 15 lbs.
