Whoop! Seem to have broken through the up-down 278-200 bounce. Down to 274 this morning. Quite the whoosh. I wrote in my journal that I had more potatoes today with my breakfast. But, I don't really care. I have lost so much weight in the last 2.5 months of primal (officially 41 lbs this morning) I could probably suit to slow down a bit. So, I will enjoy my potatoes a couple times per week, damnit! I fully expect to be a pound heavier in the morning, but, I'm just ok with that. The trend is steadily going downward, which makes me happy enough.
So, I FEEL like I've lost 40lbs... but I don't think I LOOk like I've lost it. I can definitely tell in my face and how my clothing fits, but everything else pretty much looks the same (to me.) Boyfriend says I look like I have, which should be good enough for me, I guess. I have so much to lose though, I think it will take awhile before *I* start to notice major differences in my appearance. Hard to believe just the beginning of February, I weighed a whopping 315 pounds. Oh, boy was I icky. I remember when I started my new job I was SQUEEZING into my uniform shirt, most of the time leaving the bottom button undone. We wear long aprons, so you couldn't tell. Now it fits just perfectly, and I 'spect soon it will be noticeably loose.
Seems like on ADF I really can't do anything wrong. Even if I have an off primal day, within in a few days time I'll be right back on track. Ya know, there are people out there that do this "diet" (It's a lifestyle for us) with the regular SAD. They literally eat ANYTHING on their UD and still lose weight, albeit, probably not as quickly as we are.
I am also in the "struggle to get enough calories in" on UDs camp. I usually wind up eating one meal and a snack or nibbles of food here and there. Just not hungry enough to justify making food. I also like to cut out eating about 4pm since I rise at 2am every morning. Something in my head seems to think that I need 8 hours for my body to release "things" before I can get an accurate reading on the scale. Does anyone else find it amazing that after the day is over, you can weight 5lbs more than you weighed that morning... go to sleep, wake up and weigh 1lb less than the morning before? I do. What happens to it all in our 8ish hours of rest?
The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.
