So, what was it, four days ago that I announced my astonishment with that fact that I was still losing weight on a daily basis? Well, that'll teach me to hush my mouth because ever since I posted about it, I've not lost a single pound. In fact, me and the pounds have been playing a little game of ping-pong. Saturday: 17st 9lbs (247lbs) - lowest weight yet
Sunday: 17st 11lbs (249lbs) - GAIN of 2lbs -YIKES (although I did weigh post-breakfast which I don't usually)
Monday: 17st 9lbs (247lbs) - back to the lowest weight
Tuesday: 17st 10lbs (248lbs) - GAIN of 1lb (although first time I stepped on scales they did register 17st 9lbs, but I just had to get on again to double check, and then look what happened!)
Wednesday: 17st 9lbs (247lbs)- back to lowest weight again
I was interested to read on Tracy's blog about the idea of actually eating a little more in order to get the scales moving again (downwards, that is; I'm sure we're all well aware of how to get them moving upwards!) I've always had a notion (which I'm thinking I must have read somewhere) about the body going into starvation mode when you really cut your calories down for a sustained period. It's like the body hangs on to all the fat it already has and every single calorie it can get its hands on; but then you go and fool it into thinking it doesn't need to panic anymore by having a day where you eat a little more than you have been and then it seems happy to let go of a little more of the fat it has been storing for emergencies. Or something like that.
