Total Weight Loss

Not Feeling Good Between the Ears

I'm not feeling so good mentally today.  I know I said that the main purpose of this week's plan was to shake my body up and not worry about the weight, but I never anticipated gaining weight.  As of this morning I was up 0.4 lbs.  I know that isn't much, but it is so frustrating to stick 100% to plan and then see a gain no matter how small.  I feel so betrayed somehow.

Today I am drinking the water like crazy.  I hope that will literally flush out the excess weight.  It is back to low carb.  That works.  It is just slow and keeps getting slower.  Soon there will be lots of fresh food from my own back yard garden to enjoy.  Maybe that will help too.

I think maybe I was just eating too much fruit.  I had been limiting myself to two servings a day.  Even though those are the good carbs, I think my body just freaks out on any carbs.

It also doesn't help that I'm at work and J-boy is at home.  His class didn't make for next month, so he's doing independent study with those that signed up.  That means he doesn't have to go to work until mid-August!!  He'll have to show up for the odd meeting here and there, but he's not having to keep a schedule.  I'm so jealous of that I can hardly stand it.

OK...deep breath...drink water...hope for a better day tomorrow...


  1. Lori, I am so sorry. Only those who've experienced that gain when expecting a loss can fully empathize with the attached feelings. There's got to be something simple going on and you'll see the loss reflected soon. Don't you dare give up!!! Fully get the feelings about J-boy as well - major reason we did a major about-face in 2002 so I could quit working. I couldn't stand it when he was home and I was not.

  2. Sharon,
    I told J-boy about you. So far, however, we've not agreed that it is time for me to 'retire.'

  3. MEN...*sheesh*...they give up cokes for a week and lose 10 pounds. Ain't fair!

    I will pray for you to have patience and not do bodily harm to him!
