My turn to whine.... Is this weight loss (gain) normal for Induction?.....(m)
I told you I'd have a lot of questions!
I'm on day #12 of Induction. I weighed after the first 5 days and I'd "lost" 6 lbs. I was thrilled and amazed. After the second 4 days I'd "gained" 1 lb. Now after another 3 days I've "gained" another 1 lb.
What is going on???? I'm following the plan to a T. I'm taking my supplements. I'm drinking my water. I find I'm hardly ever hungry. My Ketostix tell me I'm in ketosis.
WHY oh WHY am I gaining weight??? I'm ready to ditch this whole thing. I feel like such a loser. So now I'm just about finished Induction and I've lost a whopping 4 lbs. I've been reading about everyone in the archives losing 6, 8, 10, even 12 lbs. during Induction.
Is it because I really don't have a lot of weight to lose? I started at 142 and now am 138. I want to get to about 125-130. Is it the ol' "the last 10 lbs. is the hardest" thing?
Thanks for any insight you have.
I will confess that after being so discouraged this morning I ate the last piece of my daughter's birthday cake. Two of my kids had birthdays this week and I didn't eat any of their cake or stray from the plan once....until today. Now I'm afraid I'm in a downward spiral.
I told you I'd be whining... : ) Thanks for reading this far...
