No my darlings, you aren’t seeing things. That weight is exactly the same as last week. It is frustrating. I did really well with diet and exercise this week and then Wednesday we switched up the meal plans. My babydoll has dental surgery on this coming Tuesday and his way of dealing with the nerves is to focus on eating everything that he thinks he won’t be able to chew for about a week after the surgery.
I don’t know if he feels he will starve the week after his surgery but as a result foods that we don’t normally eat except for every once in a while have been creeping in this week and because he was starting to get crazy eyed I told him we could do whatever he wanted for meals until his surgery. The crazy eyes stopped, but the food has gotten a bit indulgent.
I have been trying to keep my portions slim. Which is surprisingly easy as many of the foods he craves aren’t ones I really want to eat a lot of. But even small portions are caloric. And while my exercises have been good, I don’t think I’m burning as many calories as I do when I walk through the park. It is still flooded.
I suppose I could look at it as I did enough and exercised enough portion control not to gain anything. But it doesn’t feel like much of a win. I know, it is temporary, and a bit out of my control. I am controlling what I can and just have to accept that I don’t in fact run the universe. I wonder if that means I have to give the intergalactic crown back?
Starting Weight: 246 lbs
Last week’s Weight: 212.6 lbs
This week’s weight: 212.6 lbs
Lost this week 0.0 lbs
Lost thus far: 33.4 lbs
So today is a steady as she goes day. No wins, and no losses. Not what I hoped for, but completely understandable and not the end of the world.
