...that I will ever actually be thin.
Most of my life I thought I was fat even though I was gorgeous size 9 and if I could go back and time and smack that girl that thought she was fat I would. I gained weight once when I was 20 or so and lost it with Atkins(30lbs 3 months simple). I got married, then divorced, and at my largest I was 199lbs.
Dec 2007 I decided to start Jenny and lost about 20 of those lbs and since then I hover between 164-170. I have not been able to get below 164 since about 2004. Over the last 3 years I have kept most of the weight off with exercise every now and again and eating generally healthy.
I have decided I want to get below my 164lbs and here begins a new journey with a goal weight of around 150lbs.
I currently weight 168. I started Atkins at about 170 about 2 1/2-3 weeks ago and last week I weighed 167.6 and now I weigh 168.8 as of this morning. I have been in ketosis the whole time and haven't cheated.
I am just so frustrated with the 1lb gain! I have been using some light weights when I work out, but a gain! I would be fine w/ staying the same, but the gain killed me this morning. I don't eat more than about 1600 calories a day and no more than 20 carbs a day during the induction. I didn't do anything crazy or cheat for this gain. Overall it has really left me feeling horribly disappointed and let down. Like I will never ever see 150lbs.
I also track all my food with the my fitness pal website.
I am not unhappy with the way I look now, but I feel like my body wants to stay at this weight range and it is fighting me big time to drop below it. I just for once want to look in a mirror and say wow I look skinny again. (well me skinny not crazy super model skinny)
Does anyone know if you can you gain weight in ketosis?
