S/C/G: 188/185/164

Height: 5'8"


My water weight is still being stubborn. I had a suspicion it would be with the way the last few days have been going, but I really don't know what is going on with it. It's frustrating in a way, but by the same token, it's kind of interesting. It's like my body is part of an experiment, lol! I'm taking a weight loss path I haven't taken before, and I'm curious as to where it's going to lead me! I'd be more upset about it, but the way I figure it, it can't last, and I'm not in a race to lose weight or trying to beat a deadline. I've already lost around 40 lbs so I really don't have anything to complain about, and I'm staying on plan so I have no reason to blame myself for doing anything wrong, so I just have to wait it out. And while I'm waiting, I just happen to find the whole thing kind of fascinating. I did try a couple of things to see if it would make a difference. I took Pamprin today because if it is pre-Tom related, I figured that might help with bloat. It hasn't. Last night, I took a Dulcolax to see if that would help any. It didn't. The Dulcolax did its job well enough, but I'm still bloated, still holding water. My belly is not as flat as it was before, my jeans feel tighter, and my rings are tight. Nope, something I have no control over seems to be going on, so it will be interesting to see how it turns out, how long it takes, whether or not it is hormone-related, etc. I guess if worse comes to worse, I'll have to cut something back in my diet, but I really don't think it's diet-related. And so the experiment continues, lol! Anyway, I am down a half-lb from yesterday, and that's better than nothng!

Week 28:
1/25: 171 Cheat Day
1/26: 173.5
1/27: 173

Today's Meals:
Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs, a teapot of green tea, Mio water
Lunch: Wendy's chili and 6 chicken nuggets, Diet Dr. Pepper
Dinner: rotisserie chicken (no skin), steamed broccoli and cauliflower, Mio water, a teapot of green tea

Steph, there are some yummy meats you could prepare for Superbowl--meatballs, pulled pork, chicken wings--or chili or a hearty beef vegetable soup.

Missy, yes, I'm thinking it must have to do with hormones, but that's just a guess!

Gary, yay on the new low!

Rennie, 169 may have won today, but 168 is on its way tomorrow! Great job!

Joe, way to go on losing another lb! Applesauce for beans sounds like a pretty good trade-out!

You know, it just occurred to me as I was rereading my post before sending it that the reason I tried Dulcolax (which I have never taken before--not a fan of meds) is because I ran out of probiotics last week and was feeling irregular. Since I don't eat Activia yogurt everyday anymore, I had broken down and started taking probiotics (yep, in pill form!) but like I said, I ran out. Now I wonder if being without it could be contributing to this weight gain. I should go out and get some tomorrow just in case, but its going to be really cold, so I don't know, lol! That part of the experiment may have to wait until the weekend!
