I must confess that I felt a little deflated this week. After a 6 kg loss last week I was hoping for something similar this week. Stupidly I weighed myself on Monday and I had gained a kilo. SERIOUSLY! How does one gain a kilo when one is only on fluids! It was beyond me. I was beginning to feel it was a big waste of money and that nothing was going to work.
By Thursday I had lost the kilo again but I was just getting more depressed. If I could have I probably would have ordered a pizza to drown my sorrows.
Friday morning I refused to weigh myself. I had a Dr's appointment (something entirely different). My GP asked me how I was going and I told him that it seems I am struggling to lose yet again. He then asked me how active I had been which really is very little thanks to the pain I have had which occurred more intense when I moved. He made me realise that that was the most likely reason. I have always said I need to exercise to lose weight so just because I am on fluids doesn't mean I can stop moving.
The rest of the day was spent shopping with mum and we were out for a few hours. Basically this has helped prove my Dr's point because I finally lost another kg today. I now weigh less than I have for over 3 years and I am 1 tenth of the way to my goal weight.
On another note, I graduated from fluids to mash today as well. Doesn't this 1/4 cup of potatoe/avocado mash just look divine. Trust me, it tasted divine.
