No one ever said I was anything other than perverse. Yesterday I gained a pound. No, I didn't divert from my diet, but on this very restricted about 800 calorie a day diet, I gained a pound yesterday. Perhaps this is illustrative of why I need such an extreme intervention to deal with my weight. The only particular variance I can think of is that yesterday my schedule was crazy and I was not able to space my eating out at nice even intervals like I have. I got to the end of the day and I had only eaten three of my six allotted side items, so I had a dinner of a cup of cream of wheat with some sugar free maple syrup and a frozen banana chocolate protein shake. This is more food than we typically get at one time. I don't know if that was what resulted in the weight gain. I still ate precisely what we are supposed to have in a day and nothing more.
t this morning is down a half pound and so has lost a total of 10 1/2 pounds. Sue has once again to day remained static neither gaining or losing so she continues to have lost 11 1/2 pounds. So overall we have lost 34 pounds in 8 days. Obviously the dramatic rapid weight loss we experienced in the very beginning has subsided. I actually regained a pound.
Hopefully t's and my livers are both shrinking and shriveling up to tiny little nubs of their former selves. It is good to remember that it is that shrinkage that was the purpose of this diet and the weight loss, that we so much appreciate, is only a side effect.
Thank you for checking in and, once again, for all the supportive comments.
All the best,
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.
