So, coming off the first week drop of 4 pounds, I was rather disappointed when I started the week up 2 pounds at 167.8. Day after day, the exact same reading. I was starting to wonder if the scale was broken.
But then on Wednesday, I wore a shirt that I haven’t worn for about 3 months and I was afraid that I was going to rip out the shoulders and chest! It used to be kind of loose on me (before I put on my last 10), but now the button across the chest is starting to pucker out. And I’ve noticed that my belly is getting smaller. I know that I should measure it, but this week has been hectic and I keep forgetting. I plan on talking to one of the trainers at my gym to see what my body fat is, since the last time was 3 weeks ago and I was 21%.
Finally on Thursday, the scale seems to fix itself and I was down a solid pound.
I still really like this diet and how I feel eating this way. No sugar spike/crashes. No “Holy crap I need a Coke to get through the rest of the day”. Just nice and even, and I’m never hungry, so even if the results weren’t as visible, I’d still do it just because I feel so much better.
Oh, and for some reason I haven’t been sleeping well since I switched to this diet. Has anyone else had this issue? I sleep for about 3-4 hours then wake up. I’d love to have the extra time, but it’s not deep sleep so I’m exhausted for the day.
Still, all in all a pretty good week.
