Well, Iím feeling frustrated. Iíve been staying on plan and exercising and I woke up yesterday to a half pound gain and today to a 1 pound gain. I touched 156 and here I am back at 158. My body refuses to leave this level even when I am careful what I eat and exercise. Iíve monitored my calories to make sure Iím eating enough and Iím eating about 1100-1200 per day. I think this is my dreaded pleateau. When I was in high school I regularly weighed 160 so it makes since my body is wanting to stop with the weight loss here. SO, the only thing I think I have left for this battle is a fat fast (and no, I donít want to hear your opinions on it if you arenít someone who has done low carb or donít know the difference between diabetic ketosis or low carb ketosis). I thought about how and when to do it this morning and maybe starting the beginning of next week but I donít think I can take any more days of disappointment. I did some preliminary research this morning and will continue on this afternoon but it is highly recommended for people in stalls or people just starting that canít seem to get into ketosis. Iím starting tomorrow and I plan going through on Monday. Nothing sounds particularly appetizing and I donít want to be stuck in the kitchen trying to make something great out of awful ingredients. Iíll keep it simples, cream cheese, macadamia nuts, and heavy cream for my daily cup of coffee. Sweet, simple, to the point. Itís only 4 days, but I predict them to be a long 4 days. I hope I can get my body jump started back into losing weightÖ. Anyone else do one? Advice?
