Question - what do you all mean by woosh week??
Well I weighed this morning and am up to 335
5/14 336.8 (stubborn stubborn pound!)
5/15 336.6 (ARGHHHHHHH!)
5/16 335.4 (now we're talkin!)
So -- thinking about why --- well Tuesday when I came back I was at the dr all day with my grandad - I had bought a box of the atkins morning bars -- I had one of those for breakfast Tue and Wed (Wed was at my daughter's school for her awards ceramony) and I had picked up a bag of pork rinds -- those still allowed on atkins right?
So these are the only two diet changes I've had.
I know Atkins says you can use those bars for any phase but they all have stuff in it that's not allowed on induction. It also says low net carbs but carbs on the box don't reflect it. I bought them to use on my trip if I needed something to snack on but never did - so used them for two mornings where I was in a big rush.
I'll def nix those for sure. And the pork rinds.
Other thing is TOM. So all of that combined could be causing the weight gain --- if I'd known I was gonna gain I'd had a slice of pizza! HAHA
I"m having issues with TOM too - here 4-5 days, off 2-3 and right back again - my doc wants me to start on BC, but I'm worried it's going to effect my weight loss so weighing those decisions now too.
- any veggies you could bring and throw on the grill would be good - I love asapargus on the grill. Also there is a reciepe for grilled cabbage - you cut it in 4 wedges, cover it in salt pepper a little butter and bacon bits (I use the real bacon crumbs, no nitrates as opposed to bits), and wrap it all in foil, grill for... umm I can't remember how long lol I do it in the oven. I'll try to look it up, if you don't hear from me in time though just google grilled cabbage and you'll find it
As far as resisting foods in front of you that you can't have - don't think it wasn't insanley hard to do so - but... I made a decision when I started this - what did I love more? Food or being able to do things with my daughter? Food or risking my health any longer? Food or the wondeful feeling of my pants not literally cutting me in two b/c my fat pants are now too small?
When I see foods I want, or think of foods I want that I can't have - I remember why I'm doing this. And *usually* feel vindicated when I get on the scale the next day and see those numbers still dropping - except for today lol
But that's ok, I know what could be the causes so I"m eliminating them and remembering to be patient for TOM as well.
