I think I have definitely proven that moving from Atkins to a normal carb intake will always cause a pretty big spike up in weight regardless of calories.
I had a good calorie day yesterday 1200 but I gained over two pounds. 😛
After only 1,200 calories I really wasn’t expecting a spike up after just one day of carbs but the same thing happened last time.
Yesterday’s Meal Plan
Breakfast – Instant banana and cream oatmeal
Lunch – Turkey and cheese on wheat with salad
Dinner – Red beans and rice with sausage
Snack – Wasabi peas and cheese
I don’t see much up there to gain 2 pounds!!! I must have held on to every drop of water all day to go up two pounds. Grrr!
Day 1 of my second attempt at maintenance went no better than last time and I cut the portions in half from last time for the rice, beans and sausage.
I really hope the scale stays still tomorrow but I didn’t ride yesterday or today and I had more calories today. 😛
I never ride on Thursday. Good thing is was my day off because the wind was really blowing yesterday. It would have been a miserable ride.
Tip Of The Day
I always try to talk about the tip I used or really needed on the day I write my blog. Right now I just need a big dose of patience mixed with a little positive thinking. 😀
You need to stay positive which is not always easy when you eat 1200 calories and GAIN 2 pounds. 😛
Still, I need to realize I am doing what I should be doing and eventually the scale will start moving in the right direction.
Stay positive and have a great weekend!
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
