After a bit of a loss yesterday, I registered a gain today! Now I am sitting 1 lb over LDW. In the scheme of the universe, that's not a big deal, with my CDO (that's OCD in alphabetical order), it's bothering me. Mainly because I am comparing this time to last time, and R2 always seems to be a car wreck in comparison to R1.
Part of me is considering a Round 3 with hCG, just to get these last 20 lbs off. But, if I can't stabilize here at 205, how am I supposed to be stable at 185?
Well, I have a list of problems food, and other things (like not enough water, meal times, etc). Once I stabilize, I will be able to test them all out. So, here's how I stand
I can eat most P2 foods (fruit shouldn't be eaten during P3, so that's a non issue).
I can add fats (CO, EVOO, avocados).
I have to keep portions small (kind of a duh statement).
Eat more veggies (good advice at any time).
No starchy foods for the time being (really shouldn't be introduced until P4).
Keep my water level up (64 + ounces daily).
Keep moving, walking and exercising.
Eat breakfast and a late lunch, no food after 5 pm (moved from 7 pm, so dinner with the fam is out!).
And, of course, I will add some rules and subtract some rules, as I get stabilized.
Depending on what happens tomorrow, I may have to do one more steak day. The last one was a bust, maybe due to the J. Lee Roy's (the world's best dipping sauce made right here in Oroville!), so it will just be a broiled (possibly grilled) steak and a tomato (what a thrill! NOT!!!!!).
If I hold steady tomorrow, or even experience a loss (preferred), then I will repeat everything I am doing today, then see what Thursday has in store.
This just might be my body being my body. I am not eating grains or legumes, very few, if any processed foods (I guess J. Lee Roy's counts as a processed food, I am sure the caveman didn't have "dipping sauce").
So at some point I should level out.
Like I posted before, I have to keep perspective on the whole thing (no matter how pissy I am getting!). I am doing great, and my head is in the game, now to get my bod to cooperate!.
