Almost 4 pounds higher than my weight 10 days ago. This is starting to drive me little bonkers.
Yesterday’s Meal Plan
Breakfast – Chicken with onions
Lunch – None
Dinner – Giant omelette with sausage, onions, peppers, and cheese
Snack – Chicken
Calories – 1500
I missed lunch. Just couldn’t get to it. I took my sister out to Linner (lunch+dinner) at the Camellia Grill which serves diner food. I jumped on the omelette which for the most part is low carb. It comes with a giant order of french fries. I really wanted to bury my head in those fries but I only ate one fry.
I’m hoping the salt in the diner food is what caused the spike up in my weight. This is really getting frustrating. I haven’t held onto a weight gain for this long since I started the diet. Even when I pigged out over Christmas then New Years, I was able to lose all that weight pretty fast. So this 10 days without losing the weight gain is making me Ultra Super Grumpy.
Wednesday is my day off. 😛
It was definitely a good day to take off because it rained all morning and was misting and cold all afternoon.
I’ll need to hit the levee hard today.
One bit of good news. My resting heart rate is about 20 beats lower since before I started riding the bike. It used to be higher than normal and now it is smack dab in the middle of the normal rate, so 3 weeks on the bike has already improved my health even if it has conspired with the evil scale to keep me from moving down.
Tip Of The Day
Never give up! You will always hit frustrating points in your diet and you just need to dig deep. If you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, the weight WILL start to come off. If not, then maybe something needs to be tweaked a bit. I know my calories are under 1500 almost every day so I should be able to lose about 2 pounds a week.
Not entirely sure about that omelette. I guess there could have been some hidden calories but I guesstimated pretty high.
Just don’t give up. Every diet is going to be frustrating. Nobody reaches their goal weight without more than a few frustrating moments.
That is why online forums and blogs are so great. You can come here and let off that anger and frustration with people who can relate to what you are going through.
I blame my sister. 😛 Just kidding Laura. 😀
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow.
