So I've talked on here before about this really super frustrating weight loss stall that I've been in since March. I had tried giving up dairy, ZC, VLC, moderate carb, various protein amounts, higher fat, Whole30, counting calories, tracking and not tracking, etc. Nothing was really working. I thought I would just sit on it for a while and eat healthy food and be patient.
Then, last week happened. I had this three-day craft fair this weekend and the week leading up to it was full of terrible stress, a shoulder injury, a migraine, financial stress, zero gym time, and more work than there are hours in the day followed by three days of living at a fair with terrible food including pizza, fudge, and ice cream. QUEL HORREUR!
It's always been my experience that the day after eating carbs, I gain about 3-5 pounds of water weight so if I eat badly I just dont weight myself because its too depressing. Imagine my surprise though when I stepped on the scale today for the first time in over a week and I've DROPPED seven pounds and am now at my lowest weight since starting paleo last year.
Can someone tell me whats going on? I'm not dehydrated. Have I not been eating enough calories ro something? That's all I can think of. What am I missing?
