Day 18 Weigh-In

This is the reward for persisting through the discouraging days. This is what I have to hold onto when they come back around (because they will). 30 lbs down!

Day 16 Weigh-In: A Slight Step Back

Another one of these kinds of days. Since I’ve presumably finished losing water weight, these kinds of things will happen more frequently, despite my strict adherence to my eating plan.

I’m measuring my success or failure week by week, with my daily weigh-ins being about documenting the journey.

Day 14 Weigh-In: Addendum

Day 14 Weigh-In

One of the down sides of doing daily weigh-ins is that this happens sometimes. I gained 0.2 lbs back.

Despite adhering strictly to your eating plan, small plateaus and scale setbacks can occur, and daily weigh-ins are more likely to show them. Often it’s water weight, sometimes it’s just the body rebelling against a new paradigm.

What I’ve found in the past is that these days sometimes precede a big drop, or NSV (non-scale victories) tend to occur on these days, as the body seems to be “rearranging” itself. Of course, there are also times that this is just the way it goes, and it can last a few days.

The important thing is to not get discouraged. Your body wants to maintain the status quo. Keep fighting the battle, don’t give up, stick to the plan, and it’ll be alright. It’s about overall progress over time, not instant gratification.

Calorie Count for November 2, 2019

I’m still not satisfied with the calorie counting apps I’ve tried. So far, they have been too “busy” and not specific enough, or too much of their functionality is hidden behind a pay wall. I’m going to be looking for an alternative. For now, here is Saturday’s calorie breakdown.
