Six weeks into the new program and WHAM! I gained weight. That’s right, weight AND inches back. Now how on earth did that happen?
I was good; I promise I was good, really good…well sort of good. If I’m going to be perfectly honest…and isn’t that what this blog is all about…I think I might have eaten a few ounces more of that sirloin strip than I should have (but it is hard to tell exactly how much it weighs when there’s a bone in it!) And, it had been Valentine’s Day and I had to fix dinner for my husband and me so we didn’t go out and spend money on food I shouldn’t eat, right? Have I made enough excuses yet because I am perfectly capable of coming up with some more.
Actually, this is a very natural occurrence but it just drove me crazy to think that after all that hard work I had gained weight and inches. The solution? Joann suggested that I take an enzyme that would help me digest the beef a little easier. I thought that was probably a better solution than what I used to do — which was drink a Diet Coke allowing the acid in the drink to help me digest the meat better. I have no idea if that worked, but that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Reality is that I only gained a half of pound and one inch (half an inch in my stomach but what’s with the half an inch in my arm????) and it’s only temporary but you can be sure of one thing…I WILL get rid of that half inch in my stomach cause baby it hurts to zip up those smaller size jeans!!
Final tally – 15 pounds and 10-1/2 inches!
Until next time…
