Today I weighed myself and I was 262.8 lbs. I know they say weight loss is not linear, but this was a little irritating. I would’ve been mad, but I noticed over the past couple weeks that my clothes are fitting a little looser. Plus I’m still showing pink on my Stix, so I’m ok. I actually upped my calories and felt pretty good from last week, but I ruined it because I was out all weekend and had limited food choices (the only keto-friendly food available was sunflower seeds). I also didn’t track my food intake on MFP this week either, because I didn’t really have time to shop at the grocery store.
These past two weeks have been pretty rough and I’m just glad they’re over. When I haven’t been working or handling some kind of ridiculous errand, I’ve been trying to catch up on sleep. I apologize for missing last week’s update. I had actually gained 1.5 lbs back, but I was still in ketosis so I’m assuming that it was water weight I had from a social gathering meal a few days prior.
I know this is gonna sound like an excuse, but I don’t think my scale is very reliable anymore. Even this morning, I had to weigh myself six times to see a consistent number. Then I took a leak (sorry), and I actually GAINED 0.2 lbs. How does that even work?? I swear it just settles on a number it likes, and is like, “Aahhh ok cool. Let’s stick with this weight until he puts me away for next Monday.” So soon as I get a chance, this scale is gone. I’m thinking maybe it has PTSD since I took it to Afghanistan. *shrug*
Talk to you guys soon. Btw, if you haven’t been looking at the recipes around here (WordPress), I suggest you do. Great ideas, especially those peanut butter cups KetoSweetheart made. I’m a chocolate fanatic.
