Well, after two weeks of staying on plan, getting plenty of exercise and basically doing everything right I . . . gained 1.2 pounds! When the leader told me I had gained, and how much, I just about burst into tears. Frustrating doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt; it was more like a betrayal. This week’s weight undoes everything I had (slowly) lost over the past seven weeks.
But, I will pick up the pieces and keep on going. The leader feels like it might be “just one of those things,” but I think that even though I was accurately following the Simply Filling eating plan and filling up on “power foods,” I was probably eating too much. I am back to counting points again, so we shall see. Otherwise, I haven’t a clue why I gained so much.
The really hard part was that I honestly felt like I had some lost weight. Le BIG sigh.
