Gimme a break!

Nov 26, 2011 - 3 comments

Oh c'mon! This is ridiculous. I've been eating only 1 meal a day for 2 weeks because of nausea and exhaution. I didn't even have a dessert on Thanksgiving and had only small servings of the turkey & fixings which I didn't even finish! Yesterday I had 2 oz. of turkey, a couple of tablespoons of stuffing and a couple teaspoons of gravy with a diet soda. I can understand that decreased intake may cause the metabolism---and thus the weight loss---to slow, but GAINING on what I've been eating? Ridiculous and discouraging. I tried to set a REASONABLE goal for SLOW weight loss and to be patient with it this time---but here I am, BEHIND again, even with an extremely modest, slow goal. :(

its probably not b/c of what you have been eating. i assume your body is fighting something, there forth your body is not only retaining water for later usage (b/c you can't eat as much) it is also retaining everything your eating so it can distribute it at a later date. think of it as your  body is in starvation mode. i know it *****, but it means your body IS doing what it is supposed to so thats good!

as well, if you aren't getting the amount of sleep you should, your body holds on to weight more too. sleeping helps you loose weight!!! :) hope this helps <3
