Well I went back to work this week and thought maybe that would get me back on track, as I was grazing all day.
Mon and Tues, good eating, walking up hills at lunch..... and no weight loss. I was getting quite annoyed and disappointed, but I knew I had added the protein I really needed to my diet, but it was frustrating.
Wednesday I get home from work, start on dinner - after deciding not to eat the chicken because it looked dodgy, I decide to have the three potatoes I had made with them as I was starving - BIG MISTAKE!
Of course cooking it all for longer had made them extra crispy...and sure enough I got stuck...and stayed stuck for about an hour.
There was much sliming...oh gross, the first time it was out the nose and the mouth. And the froth...ick! After an hour I knew the worst offender had gone down but there were probably had some more there...and sure enough the next slime brought up a small amount of potatoe pieces.
I never want to do that again.
On the plus side the next morning I had lost 1.3 kilo's (2.87 pounds). I figured maybe it was all slime (and not much for dinner).
Then this morning when I hopped on the scales for weigh in day I had lost another 0.5 kilo's (1.1 pound)!!!!!
Now admittedly I did two walks of an hour each yesterday but wow I had actually gone up to 119.3 (263 pounds) after weigh in last week and then I have ended at 117.5 (259 pounds)
I was worried I might have damaged the band but it felt much better today. But at least I feel like finally I am making progress, I was beginning to feel a little disheartened.
I came to a realisation that previously over the christmas break I had always lost weight while grazing at home...now that I no longer am over eating the rest of the year grazing actually means I put ON weight...damn, no more happy cow grazing!
