Journal entry for Monday, September 10
Okay – the question of the day is, how on earth did I gain 2 pounds in one day?! (Incidentally, I’m recording this in my Primal Journal on Tuesday and I’ve held on to the 2 pound weight gain through this morning. Sigh! And we even took longer walks than usual with the dog on Monday.)
I had sincerely hoped I would start to dip back into the 180’s this week. If this continues, I guess I’ll go back to my weight loss doctor, who has helped me get down to my present weight from a starting weight of 233. His method is not primal but it works.
Last week I thought the no grains, lower carb approach was working and I lost 2 pounds. I put them back on after the weekend! The only unusual things about the weekend were, later suppers on Friday and Saturday because of church services, fasting until after Liturgy on Sunday morning, eating from the church potluck on Sunday noon (although I skipped the dessert table and chose lower carb items from the main spread.) One buckwheat pancake on Saturday morning and a leftover buckwheat pancake on Sunday afternoon when we came home from church. My recipe does not have any grains, just buckwheat (and yogurt, and eggs among other things).
I generally do gain back weight after a weekend. It is very frustrating. Lose it during the week and gain it all back on the weekend. And I don’t think the foods I eat are all that different. And I don’t think 2 buckwheat pancakes that weigh a couple of ounces each, eaten one at a time a day apart, are enough to put back 2 pounds!
Well, it’s Tuesday and I’m off to walk my dog. DH has a breakfast meeting so he won’t be walking with us this morning. And here’s my Sparkpeople notes from yesterday:
