I am on day 15 and I haven't lost a single effing pound... this is unusual. With my first two attempts at W30 (June for 23 days and July for 25 days) I lost 10 lbs each. To go 15 days and not lose a single pound has me baffled. Especially when I'm doing exactly as I did with the other two. I even went into ketosis at the beginning of this one when I cut fruit and haven't seen ANY results on the scale.
I'm not lifting so it's not weight loss = muscle gain, thus no sign of change on the scale... I'm literally doing nothing different than I did with the first two. This boggles my mind. Surely, this is the start of a plateau...
So, I guess that means I have to change things up... in most cases, when Paleo, people will say "bust a plateau with a Whole30", but when you're already doing one... Literally, the only things in my diet are meats, veggies, fruits (minimal), coconut milk, coconut oil, and bacon grease (cooking eggs and green beans only). Seriously! What else is there to do? I don't want to be at 189 forever, even if I am only 7 lbs heavier than my pre-pregnancy weight and wearing pre-pregnancy pants.
I'm going to the gym today. Going to start doing HIIT and weights BFL style. That better work. On August 31, I had better weigh less than I do today. I'm aiming for a body fat in the 20's and that's not going to happen if the scale doesn't budge...
And this whole no weight loss thing isn't helping my W30 become any easier. This has been the most difficult W30 yet. I've wanted to break it many times, but haven't simply because my SIL is doing her first and I want to be there to help her through it, while following the same rules. It would be uncool of me to coach her about how the W30 is all a mindset thing while munching on a dark chocolate bar... ya know? And of course, she's on day 13 so she's still going through some withdrawal stuff and experiencing the blues that come with that. The psychological aspect of the W30 is so difficult, and then to have zero weight loss with it is just draining!!
I know this is why they tell us to avoid the scale b/c so many other things are likely going on regardless of weight loss or not, but seriously! How do you explain two 10 lb losses back to back and then zero lbs of loss with the 3rd. Makes no sense.
Hopefully some gym time will help.
