Confirmation

Standard

At 240 pounds the calories/BMR for me is currently 2100.  Last week, for 6 days I was 1100-1200 under that, and one day I was 400 under.  One pound is 3500 calories.  I should have lost 2 pounds last week alone.

F’ing diet.

Week 13 Check-In (a couple of days late)

Standard

Date: 5/12/15

Loss(-)/Gain(+):  +1.4 lbs

Current Weight:  240.0 lbs


Well, I’m 2 days passed being pissed.  Other than the gum, which I’ve written about and threw away last Thursday night, I stayed ON PLAN.  Or what I knew the plan to be for myself.

In 2012 I was losing a huge amount of weight, and I figured I was in ketosis when I was 50 total carbs or under per day.  Well, apparently I was not in ketosis.  Or being 3 years younger made a difference.  Or who the hell knows what.

The ladies at the clinic and I just can’t figure out how I gained, because even with a calorie deficit, taking account of BMR, I should STILL be losing, and NOT gaining for the last 3 weeks.  So all we can figure is my carbs are too high, and my hunger is more, so I eat more protein calories overall, and then because I’m not in ketosis the body is storing the “extra calories” (which, I remind you is STILL a DEFICIT).

Disgusted.

So the plan for this week is to be under 30 total carbs each day.  I haven’t eaten vegetables since Monday night.  I just peed on the stick and I’m in ketosis, so perhaps I will have some veggies tomorrow, but I’m thinking I may do a lot of days without veggies at all if I have to stay so low just to be in ketosis.

I know that’s not terribly healthy, but let’s face it, I didn’t gain all the weight by eating vegetables/fruits…..so if I have to go a few months with very few vegetables/no fruit, well, oh well.  Short term stress on the body for long term benefits.  I’ll eat vegetables and fruits when I get to my goal.

This is just damn difficult.  And yet, I’m so blessed to work from home so I’m not forced to have potlucks and whatnot in my face every day.

So that’s the scoop.  Not terribly positive, but onward we go.
