Day 99: Back in the right frame of mind

Day 99

-1 oz ham lunch meat
- Assorted cheese cubes (hot pepper jack and cheddar)
- Buttered broccoli
- Two grilled hot dogs, rolled up in oopsie buns, with diced onions, mustard and reduced sugar Heinz ketchup
- Two grilled pork ribs
- Broccoli/Cauliflower Gratin with ketchup

This morning, when woke up on day 100, I was back to my Day 80 weight. Now, this is still roughly 40 lbs down from my weight 100 days ago, which really is phenomenal. Still, this is a 2.6 lb gain in the last 10 days. I was shocked and dismayed! I really just need to start eating better quality food, with less sodium... and less of it. There are times when I do feel satisfied and I will keep on eating, just because it's on my plate. I looked at my menu for day 99 and wow, I ate salty foods all day. Still, I've been doing a lot of entertaining lately and I haven't eaten any bad carbs - so this is an accomplishment for me.

Now, I've also been exercising, so I am hoping that some of that gain is muscle. Also, my waist size is smaller than my last weigh-in ... I feel like I should point that out. Plus, the last 100 days, I've done better on my weight loss than my whole life! Soo... I can't let the "mental stuff" get to me here... because everybody knows - when you quit believing in yourself is when everything goes to shit. (Right?)

I'm going to move more, eat less... eat better quality.... By the way, I still believe in myself and low-carb and I'm in it for the long haul!

  1. Great attitude, Angie.

    I try to view the scale only as a guide to help determine what's working and what's not. It's not a way of assessing success.

    I think you're doing great and are to be commended. Adjustments may be necessary but I hope you'll feel proud of all the good you've already done! Keep it up!

  2. that 2 lbs is probably just a little ater weight. That happens to me sometimes when I eat alot of salty stuff, or too much cheese or dont get enough exercise over a weeks time. Just continue on and it will come off and more.
