Steven Anthony's Journal, 25 May 2018

Day 39 of my 90-day program went pretty good. My appetite was more normal, I felt in control but was really unhappy about the week overall. My weigh-in this morning was a disaster with a 6 lbs gain. It was not a good week, but after breakfast I will start my 3-day fast. I feel like I really need it to regroup and reflect.

Although I am upset, I am not going to self sabotage. I am going to put this behind me and get to a happy place without food. I feel shook up, but it is time to move this thing forward. I am determined that next week I will have good results to post.

One positive, my blood pressure is "normal" for my age. I am walking 5 miles per day with some (okay not much) extra weight lifting thrown in. My energy is high and my clothes fit better.

I worried all week I have gained weight, it sort of made me a bit miserable. Now that the truth is revealed, it's time to accept it and move on to better things. Have a great weekend everyone!

But, it wasn't 8 pounds like I did :) You know you will be fine. It is just water weight from your body hanging onto every bit of glucose. A low carb fast (and exercise!) will wipe that out. Two months from now you and I will be the same weight :)

You are doing great!! The scale is not how you should measure your success at all. I speak from experience. I weigh more than I did a year ago, but my measurements are less. My appetite is better.(I was always starving - "hangry" almost!) . I eat 300-400 more calories a day than I did at this same time last year which gives me more energy and more nutrients. My sleep is greatly improved. Embrace those non-scale victories - or at least look for them - they are more motivating than the scale.

Thatโ€™s the attitude! Put it aside and move on. The future is what is of concern now. You have reviewed, you got your feedback, you know what to change, so now you can!๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

I put my scale right next to the refrigerator hoping it will shame me into staying out of the kitchen between meals.
