So as I stated on the previous blog, I stepped up on the scale on March 1st and was so happy to see that my weight was 199 pounds, which was a great way to start because it means that I had a month to lose 12 pounds.
I had potatoes but also added salt and my maytard mixture as well as cream in my coffee with sweetener. I thought I was doing pretty good, well that was until I stepped up on the scale the next morning. My weight hadn’t budged and I was still at 199 pounds. I wasn’t happy about that but then again I wasn’t that upset about staying the same. So that took me up to March 1st and 2nd.
Day 3 was a bit of shock to the system because my weight had climbed up to 200 pounds. Well I was shocked and not very happy about it but I had other things on my mind which was finally getting my hair appointment seeing that it had been 2 months since I had last seen my stylist and my roots were really getting out of control. I had been trying to find some special treats at our grocery store but our normal store doesn’t carry very much so I’ve had to do some shopping around to find some of the treats. I found a salted caramel, crunchy chocolate and lemon tarts. I shared them and had all three flavors which I knew I would later regret. I still had the maytard in my potatoes and cream in my coffee.
Day 4 I stepped up on the scale and as expected, I gained weight but not as much as I expected. My weight was 200.4 pounds, meaning I had only gained 4/10ths of a pound which was a big shocker for me. Thankfully I was able to enjoy my potatoes late in that evening so hopefully things would be good. Oh weight but I was in a feisty mood and I ended up having a glass of wine and 2 Guinness beers to go along with Latkes which were baked and not fried.
Day 5 really shocked me when I got on the scale, it showed a weight of 200.1 pounds. What???!!!! I lost 3/10ths of a pound even with eating so poorly and having my liquor. It was a shock to me. I decided that I needed to get more serious about my eating and so I started out the morning drinking my black coffee and having plain baked potatoes as well as having plain boiled potatoes for lunch. Guess what… I was still hungry. I had more potatoes only I added a link of sausage and added my maytard mixture and then I topped it off with my coffee with cream and syrup. The really amazing thing was the fact that I only drank maybe 50oz of water on Day 4 but still I lost some weight.
I’m hungry right now so I’m about to grab something to eat because one thing I’ve learned is that in order to lose weight I had to eat and so I’m going to have some more potatoes. Hopefully I will be able to get some better sleep tonight because I had neighbors who were blasting their stereo and having a great party until 4 in the morning and then they started up their music once again at about 9 in the morning. It was Sunday and my chance to sleep in faded away. That is okay, maybe I will sleep more solidly tonight.
Good bye day 5 and I’ll check back in with more data later.
