Well, I think if it weren't for TOM creaping, I may have been stabilizing a bit under, in the 213s, but it's slowly going up this week... .1, .1, and this morning .5 I'm still .5 under LDW, 214.1 today, no big deal. I think in my former life, I would have had my pestoalfredo a la Karlipooh lusciousness with pasta and gained 4 lbs from the butter and oil, but only .5 isn't bad considering I probably had a lot of salt in that meal, yaddah yaddah, TOM etc. I keep saying it. he's coming, just woulda
Well, not great news this morning; a .6 gain. Although there are a few factors that I think explain this. First, my ahem, 50 extra grams of protein on Wed night. Second, it's my TOM and third, I slept really, really badly last night. It's not enough to get upset over so I will carry on! I'm still at 7.2 lb lost which is pretty good.
Lunch - Chicken and vegetable soup
Dinner - Shake and bake fish and sauteed baby spinach
Well...I was starving last night. Ate protocol all day until about 8pm (457 calories) then HAD to have a 100 calorie pack of almonds. I dont care, I am not going to sit there hungry. Ate the almonds and was still hungry so I went to bed at 10pm. I can tell you one thing, this is no way to live even if it has been only one day, I was miserable.
I weighed 116.6 this am. Up 0.6 from my LIW already. I am thinking this isnt going to be good. I think that I will probably gain it all back

Vitamin D-3 (for us northerners-serious lack of sun here)

Woke up this morning to a 1.6 pound gain. I think a few things contributed - not enough output is my main suspect. I also have some pains in the left side of my gut that I think are due to this. I took some magnesium citrate today so hopefully that will help. Also I woke up earlier than usual. The only new foods I added yesterday were zucchini and jay robb whey protein, oh and mushrooms. I am still .4 under LDW and I can't do a steak day tomorrow (plans involving food all day), so I'm doing a protein
Attack of the sugar cravings! It's just gone 2pm and I've had my lunch and am craving sugar so badly! I know I just need to mission through these cravings - once I break this it's downhill from here and so I'm sitting here chugging as much fluid (water, coffee, licorice tea) as possible to keep my mouth occupied and my belly full of liquid until the cravings subside.
Doesn't help that I'm bored out of my mind trying to write lab reports - and boredom definitely factors into the whole

Finally made it below 212, a long standing low weight for me. It's the only one I can really remember in the past 10 years or more. It's been THE NUMBER to beat this round, and I've made it with just 4 injections to go!
Also, for those of you who haven't figured out your dose, please take the time to do so. I thought I was doing pretty well on 100iu (no hunger, decent losses, etc) BUT, when I upped to 200iu, I really saw inch losses.
In the past 8 days, since upping
Forgot to weigh early this morning, had a big olí cup of java, so went back to bed for a couple hours Ė when I finally did weigh, I was 239.8, not sure if itís a gain or I didnít get ďridĒ of all the coffee, so Iím not changing my ticker. TGIF! Iím typing all morning, then going shopping with my sis-in-law, should be fun.
Here is my plan for today:
L: Chicken on a salad
D: Burger and veggies
This isn't specifically related to cycling, but I'm posting here just so I know where to find it quickly.
Many people report they are having issues when adding foods back in during P3 and P4. Some attribute this to food allergies or food intolerance. While this may be the case, I also think leaving out groups of foods can lead to digestive problems. If you are having issues and have ruled out allergies or intolerance, you may want to consider food combining.
Enjoying a cup of warn green tea and snuggling up in my snuggie since it a bit cold this morning.
It has not been that bad...I stall one day lose another and then stall again especially when TOM is right around the corner. I really don't know what the fuss is about when you don't lose anything. I'm just bless that I have lost 16lbs, more than I would have on any other diet or exercise program but I am bound and determined to get these last 25lbs off before my year mark of dieting in
