LOL! You are so right. I didn't gain weight doing this, but I definitely stalled for several weeks. It wasn't until I started cutting out the snacking on the nuts and eat less protein and more veggies that I started losing weight again.
Started out at 405.5 on 7/31/12. Then lost 156 lbs to get down to 249.5 by 7/31/13. In the past year I have put back on over 40 pounds and reached a high of 291.5. But I have recommitted myself and quickly took off ten pounds by 7/31/14. I am now trying to take off the weight I put back on, and then lose the rest of the weight I was originally trying to lose. ‹---- Starting weight / Low weight / Current Weight / Goal Weight
