Day 13- the scale never goes below 87

I have been hovering around 87 kgs for more than a week now- sometimes the scale shows ย 88 and sometimes 89 but it always returns to 87- so I know I must be there. The amount I eat is so little compared to what I used to eat 2 weeks back but this is all that has happened.

Of course, with the decrease in energy, I have been sitting around a lot this week and not doing my 10K as I should have. Some days I thought I was going to pass off because I hadn’t provided myself with enough of the snacks from home.

I start week 3 soon- the book says we need to go on for 32 days. From yesterday, we were allowed to reintroduce fruit- though I haven’t done so yet.

At the end of day 13, the cravings seem to all have gone down. I am not tempted by any foods any longer- though sometimes while cooking, out of habit,I feel like popping a sample in my mouth. I am going to stop doing that too.

Yesterday evening we went out. We ate out at a place where there is health food available. I had a bowl of lentil soup and 1/2 a plate of quinoa and spinach salad.

      1. It’s tough. There’s 3 of us and the trainer. The other 2 ladies are bigger and they lost over 7kg each and I gained .6kg I felt down. I was working out, eating right but I gained weight. So the trainer took my measurements and I lost inches on all my measurements which is consoling. Weighed myself the say before yesterday and I had lost .7 so encouraged but disappointed. I was told I was building lean muscle that’s why I didn’t see the difference on the scale

  1. Having been a personal trainer, and consultant for many years, I feel it important to say that when you follow a program (don’t know which one you are on – you need to follow it precisely.) Eat that fruit!
    Personally, I have never calibrated a program for weight loss that would leave you with less energy…I am curious about your program. Please share if you like…I may have missed your post about it as I have been out of town and off of the computer.

    1. I am on a Sugar Cravings diet. I suffered from severe sugar cravings until 2 weeks ago. Out of desperation I tried this. Just before this, I had registered on Slimming World online but could not understand how their program worked- so I started using their program only for the weekly weigh ins- then I did a lot of walking- that was good because it boosted my confidence in myself but produced no weight loss- then I starved myself for 3 days straight- that made me lose 3 kgs and finally then I took up the Sugar Cravings diet- this helps in that after a long time in my life, I can live with so little, I found out- I don’t crave sugar at all- but had a lot of side effects of removing sugar- its been two weeks now. I just wish the scale would budge a little from the 87 kgs mark-just so my confidence would boost.
