THE GOOD NEWS?!?! Okay, when I got on the scale this morning, 280.4. Yep, I have NEVER been this happy to see a number like this. I got on again to make sure it was right and it flashed over to 279 for a second then read again: 280.4. That is over seven pounds in one day. That can't be right.... but I'm going with it! YES I AM! Yesterday, this scale told me that I was 288.8 and quite frankly, I was afraid to re-weigh yesterday because I did not want to go into the 290's again.
You have to realize though, I was binging on everything and anything in sight. I was literally on the see food diet... I would see food and eat it, with no regard to its nutritional content. WHAT was I thinking?? I was clearly under the addiction of the refined carbs and basically just wanted my next fix, all while ignoring - or putting on the back burner - my then-growing waistline.
Also, I must note (sorry boys) that it is my TOM now, so I am uber-bloated anyway.... and the night before I weighed in at 288.8, I had a big binge, so I'm sure some of that weight was that food alone. Gross. I'm sure the other part of it was water weight, but I am still excited to see the number moving the the right direction.
I actually feel like two totally different people, based on what I eat. I'm either crazy-carb-obsessed, cannot-quit-eating or quite the opposite. WHEN will I realize that this is a true addiction for me?? Processed food??
In case you are wondering my "plan," I'm not really going super-strict induction mode, but I do want to stick with very low carb. I am not the type that can eat a small amount of processed food, so it's best to keep it out of my mouth completely. I am allowing certain foods (tomatoes, a tiny amount of natural peanut butter, onions, whey protein powder and probably a very small amount of almond flour and also flax) into my diet that are not necessarily suitable for induction, but are relatively low carb.
