Five days of Fat Fast. Started at 161.8. (I'm only five feet tall, so that's definitely obese.) Yesterday, after four days of FF I was at 160. Ok, that's not great, but I'll take it. Today, day 5, I'm at 161.2.
Yes, I'm drinking lots of water.
Yes, I'm weighing and measuring everything.
No cheats. Not a bite, not a taste.
Yes, I'm taking a good multi, plus fish oil, plus vitamin D.
I've got to start getting a little more protein.
I'm open to suggestions, as long as you don't suggest low fat and higher carb. Been there, done that.

Back to where I was last week. It took a day or two longer than a week, but I'm glad I didn't change my ticker this time. I'm generally pretty rigorous about that sort of thing. If I get sloppy then I record the results.... the thing is that I still can't figure out what happened last week. I didn't stop exercising. I didn't blow my diet. No doughnuts. No pizza. None. Maybe additives in that store bought salad? Maybe. I guess there comes a point when you just have to let it go and forget about it.
I've been sticking with my food and exercise plan and it's working.
it's a big relief.

That's a start, I guess. Thanks for the supportive comments. I think I'll just try not to worry about it, and, if it's still hanging on at the end of a week, I'll try the fat fast for a bit. I SHOULD be too old for hormone fluctuations to be messing with me, but I guess we're all hormone soup of one kind or another, huh? I'm doing all the right stuff, so I'll just remind myself that it's too soon to worry.
It's too soon to worry.
It's too soon to worry.
It's too soon ........

I posted this over at one of the Atkins teams, but it's not all out of my system, yet. So I'll say it again:
Woke up yesterday AM and I was up 9 lbs. NINE! In a day!
Ok. I know, I didn't gain nine lbs of fat, and certainly not muscle. I didn't change my salt intake. Everything I ate was right in line with what I've been eating.... very low carbs. I don't really worry about calories, but they were right in line, anyway.
I'm back down four today (I've been drinking lots of EXTRA water, on the theory that when you're bloated you need to flush the system). But that still leaves me up 5 from where I was two days ago.
What do you think? Should I just hang in there doing what's been working so far? I can't imagine what kinds of changes would make any sense. Should I update my ticker with this disgusting development?

Had a little "whoosh" reading on the scale this am. Thank goodness! Yeah, I'm eating to get healthy and yada yada yada, but it's really great to see a little positive feedback on the scale, too.
Gotta get going. The foster-pups need their bedtime walk. It's amazing how I'll do for them what I've never consistently done for myself. They need walks. It's part of their healing (and no, that's not a spacy new age theory, it really helps them) so we go for walks. At least two a day. Generally at least a mile. For some of you, a mile is nothing, but I was in pretty lousy shape a few months ago, and a brisk walk around the block was really painful. A couple of brisk miles a day is HUGE for me.
Life isn't always peachy, but it's certainly getting better.
