The evening before I started QWL , my weight was 189. Last night, after one day, my weight was 186. Yesterday morning my weight was at 185.8. This morning my weight was at 183.6. That looks good.
Of course, I know it is water weight, but since my mom is carrying 60 pounds of fluid, all the water weight I lose is a positive in my opinion.
However, the body fat scale, says that I gained 7 pounds of fat and lost 9 pounds of muscle in that 24 hour period. I know that is not true.
I forgot to take the pills they tell you to take with your food, so I’m going to have to have those with my snack. You have to take the carb blocker 10 to 30 minutes before you eat, so when you get hungry, you have to wait to eat. I guess that could be a help. Learning not to eat when you first get hungry.
The only problem with it is that I tend to start getting nauseated if I don’t eat when I first feel hunger pains. So I’ll be nauseated with a medicine in my stomach. Which tends to make my reflux worse. (I don’t have full-fledged reflux. My dad does, though.)
So I’ve lost at least 2 pounds of scale weight. In one day. If that continues, which I don’t expect it to do, I will lose the 5 pounds they promise each week. Plus they said that people often lose 3 to 5 pounds the first three days in the prepatory phase. It’s a lot like Atkins’ in that part.
If I really lose a minimum of 3 pounds a week, then in 8 weeks I will be back to my low weight on BFL. That means by the middle of July I’ll be as low as I was after 8 months of dieting.
Truthfully, I don’t think it is going to work that easily. But I would love for it to and I’m going to do my best to help it. I’m going to stick with the eating plan and do what I am supposed to do.
If I get stuck on a plateau, I’ll add some exercise and hope that helps.
I’m looking forward to posting 3 pounds or more of weight loss in a week. That is something to look forward to.
