The scale is NOT moving. I'm feeling very defeated this morning. I'm not doing anything wrong. Last night at about nine o'clock I had a peanut butter and honey sandwich, but everything was measured, and it fell easily into my daily calorie count without going over. Yes it was probably to late in the day to eat but I don't think it was that bad. I also had a Sonic grilled chicken wrap yesterday and a bag of whole wheat sun chips but I counted all the calories. Even after the Sonic wrap I was still sitting at 1100 calories for the day so that is why I ate the sandwich. Not a GREAT choice but I hardly think it would be responsible for a zero weight loss on the scale.
Do you all think that my body is just freaking out on me because Ive changed my diet so drastically? Maybe its in that starvation mode right now and is holding on to everything.
So, in order not to sabotage myself I'm going to have to set a few rules. First of all, I'm going to stop weighing myself every day. Its just getting to hard to be let down every morning. Second, I'm going to not eat after seven o'clock at night no matter what. Third, I'm going to write down my measurements. I'm still debating on posting them here. It does make me more accountable and its no secret how big I am.
(ten minutes later)
After doing my measurements it is clear that I am BIG BIG BIG!! Here are my measurements. Ive decided that I could care less who knows. They are just numbers and do not define who I am inside. I'm doing smashingly well on this "Mayo Clinic" diet and I am proud of myself. However; Ill be more proud of myself when I'm not as big as a house. (grin)
My buttocks/butt/posterior: 60.5 inches
My middle/waist: 49.5 inches
Upper arm/flap/wiggly thing: 17 inches
Wrist: 7 inches
Calf/huge muscle thing/I have HUGE legs, I always have: 22 inches
Bust/boob/breast: 50.5 inches
Have I mentioned that I used to look like this?
Yes I know it was a LLLOOOONNNGGG time ago and I should let it go, but I cant seem to do that. I don't think its unreasonable for me to think that I can look that small again.
How is everyone else doing? Are you staying on plan? Do you get discouraged? Are you drinking your water and watching your sugar intake? This is hard you guys. Ive never felt so defeated and disappointed in myself before. I am proud that I have come this far. If I can do it you can do it, and that's the truth.
