Why do we (really I mean me!) do? I was on a really good pace last week! I had lost 4 pounds 2 weeks ago. I lost 2 pounds last week. And this week, since Wednesday, I GAINED 4 pounds, of which 2 pounds are from yesterday alone. Why do I do this?
Partly, I think I am rebelling the lack of variety in the plan I am trying. It is far more restrictive then I am used to! I am "supposed" to eat every 3 hours. I am to eat fruit only at breakfast and morning snack. And otherwise it is a veggie (for the carb) and protein. But that is still no excuse.
Yesterday was also a difficult day foodwise. We went to a Bar Mitzvah for the son of a dear friend. But the family is vegan. And the lunch and dinner were both vegan and gluten free. I am trying to stay away from soy but much of the food was soy. My family opted for Subway for lunch. But yesterday was my "cheat day". So today, I am recommitting to losing this weight! I will take it one day at a time. One meal at a time. One bite at a time.
I read on a website yesterday to have a "cheat day" in your plan. The websites "cheat day" is actually a 2 hour window. If you want something, wait until your cheat day. If you still want it, then eat it. This is what I am going to commit to for this week. Not to cheat except next Saturday.
I will try to post daily, but reality is my track record isn't so hot! But my logging of food is good.
