That makes it exactly eight weeks with 21.6 pounds lost. That is still better than two pounds a week. Even better than two and a half. Of course, I liked it better when I’d lost 22 pounds.
I am a bit frustrated with the weight fluctuation. I did eat a little off yesterday, but I thought I had compensated for it by not having a bar, but having a second protein drink, and by skipping one bread and one fruit.
Apparently not. Maybe it’s just water weight and by tomorrow it will be gone. I hope so.
We’ve been eating out a lot because we haven’t figured out what to eat at home that tastes good. But I would guess that eating out tastes good because it adds salt to the food.
I think I’ll have tuna for lunch and try the Alton Brown version of scrambled eggs for supper. R has fish and shrimp in the fridge he can eat.
Update on R:
It’s the 7th day and he’s lost 6.4 pounds. That’s not GREAT, but it’s really good. They say you’ll lose 3-5 pounds the first three days, then 3-5 pounds the first week. He’s done that already.
I am sure he would like to lose 3-5 more pounds this week, but even if he didn’t lose anymore, he’d be doing well. I expect he will though. At half a pound a day, he’ll have lost 8 pounds in the first 10 days. I won’t be surprised at all if he makes that.
For a reference point, I had lost 5.4 pounds the morning of my 7th day.
