So I woke up on Thursday and was exactly 2 lbs over ldw. I was mentally prepared for this and I decided to do my first steak day. I followed protocol perfectly and ate 16 oz of new york steak with one apple in the evening and pounded water all day until bed time. I woke up to a loss of only .4. Now I know that this is acceptable, but I have read such amazing things about steak day losses that I was really expecting a 1 lb loss at minimum and seeing the scale move so little was really disappointing.
On to Friday. I had a party to attend in the evening, and I'm really not sure at what point the breakdown occurred, but it occurred and it occurred hard. I knew I was over what I should have had calorie wise, but I hadn't deviated with food type at least. Then all of a sudden I found myself eating bites of peanut butter pie (full of sugar) and unwrapping candy. I felt so so gross and bloated (should also mention it's right in the middle of my TOM), but I just said screw it. Woke up this morning feeling disgusting and disgusted with myself. Wanna guess the scale? 7 LB GAIN. HOLY S***. HORRIBLE. I know that my body probably freaked after such a long time without gluten and so I really really hope most of that can disappear over the next couple days with enough water and care about food.
Today will be my first egg day, I'm hoping for a more drastic result with eggs than I got with the steak. I'm not sure my body handles steak very well. Can I do two egg days in a row? I know on an egg day consists of 8-12 eggs. I'm wondering if people eat all the yokes. and if they add anything to their eggs. If that's even allowed. Also moral support is always welcomed. I'm feeling so down and angry at myself and I saw a number on the scale today that I hadn't seen in over a month. UGH!
Any other advice on how to make my way back to my ldw is always welcomed and hoped for. Thanks.
