Wow. I got up this morning and weighed 330.0. Still a 22.2 pound weight loss, but I was slightly dissapointed that I wasn’t at 328 or 329 like I was on Sunday morning.
Yesterday I ate a banana for breakfast, beans and squash for lunch and pineapple for dinner. I had a toothache and so I took advil twice yesterday. I didn’t take any on Sunday or all Sunday night because I wanted to keep my body pure, but the pain finally got to me and I had to take something. Tooth pain makes me a mental wreck. I can’t focus and I honestly think about knocking the tooth right out of my head with an ice skate like Tom Hanks in Cast Away.
After a dinner of pineapple, I went to the gym and did 45 minutes on the elliptical machine and then I did a little bit of weight lifting. I’m not too surprised about the lack of weight loss because when you drink as much water as I did yesterday and you life weights, sometimes your muscles will retain water. At least that’s what I’ve heard.
I realize now that i so desperately want to lose that I have to be careful. Not eating so much has made me less hungry and I have to make myself eat sometimes. when I don’t lose I think I can just not eat, which isn’t an option. When dieting you have to keep your metabolism working. Starving yourself will allow you to lose weight, but you’ll lose muscle too and then when you do start eating again you put fat back on really fast. So I have to just be patient and keep at it. Eat my 3 meals a day and sometime this week I need to start taking organic whey protein which I should have been doing all along.
