The last three weeks weigh in have shown a gain or a maintain, which I have been simply smiling, being patient about and telling myself the scale is not the only way to determine success. Okay, keep plugging. BUT, since weigh in on Saturday my Wii has shown that I have experienced a gain every single day. Wear the same outfit, balance board in the same spot,same bat time, same bat channel. Sunday, up half a pound, Monday up 2 pounds, and today up 4.5 pounds. WTF ??? Not constipated, who knows when and if TOM will come again if ever, no cheats, measuring, weighing and journaling every bite, like taste, no sodium filled foods, so why in the heck a 7 pound gain in less than 4 days ?
So I reveiw my food logs, and looking at the pictures it dawns on me. For my body i am eating WAY too many carbs and not enough protien. I have PCOS and it makes me insulin resistant, so end result is that it takes any carbs I eat, holds onto them like it is starving to death, and packs on the pounds. I can and have literally gained weight eating nothing but lettuce. Add a little oatmeal to that and it acts like it is a sumo wrestler wanna be. I know this, but I keep forgetting in the midst of all the other things I keep having to remeber.
So ,time to retool my own menu. Time to add more animal protien and cap the starch carbs. Perhaps it is not too late to save the week.
