- First week - lost 10 pounds.
- Second week - lost maybe ~1 pound.
- Third week (first week of Whole30) gained that pound back++.
...this is the beginning of week 4 - WTF IS GOING ON! I started at 196-198, and I'm between 187 and 189 depending on how temperamental my scale wants to be. I'm being REALLY STRICT.
20% maximum carbs (50-70 daily, nothing refined its all from veggies) - ~30% protien and the rest is fat.
1800 calories daily ON THE NOSE except for one day last week where I hit 2100. Weights once a week, general moving about (working through 100 situps program and 100 pushups program gradually - up to about 14 of each).
Please, hack this because if it keeps up I'm going to devour something bad. 189 puts me squarely in "overweight" territory, so this isn't a "set point" for my body, unless its REALLY mental. I still have cafeteria lady arms, and my legs are still "thunder thighs" - no skinny pants for me yet. Still a size 14. Not cool. Help help help.
Yes, I am doing IF - haven't been eating breakfast all last week, but I still always hit my RDI (1800 calories) with the other two meals. I did have some dairy over the weekend (coffee) but that shouldn't kill me. I'm sick of being fat and this "diet" was supposed to change things. Boyfriend is up to 15 pounds lost, pretty consistently 2-3 pounds a week for him and I'm stuck! WTF is going on!?! He's still eating sandwiches (with bread!!!) and I'm working my ass off at the gym, and nothing!
