I must admit, I've been very discouraged lately. Since I've been able to add REAL food into my fresh sleeve, the pounds stopped melting away. This has been very disappointing especially since I really was not going over board and staying away from the sweets. Several times my sleeve thought I had over done it and sent the consumed back up for me to take a second look and really think about my choice.
With that happening and the scales not moving at all, I got really down. I should have come here and whined, but didn't want to ruin everyone elses good time. I went 10 DAYS without loosing ANYTHING! So, with Thanksgiving coming, I thought, "WTH, I'm going to eat what I want...just not very much." I'd stopped weighing by this time anyway, so who cares, right?
My 13 yr old and I made this BUTT KICKING pecan pie (1 small sliver is 500 calories; thank you, Google) and I was determined to give it my best to hold a bite or two down. While at the Thanksgiving table, my 4 bites of Turkey, 2 bites of dressing, and 2 bites of salad made me too full to try the pie.
I was really sad and pissed off about it too! But, about 6 hrs later, I had a glorious taste...it was ssssssoooooooooo good, I thought I should smoke a cigarette after. (J/K--I quit smoking over 2.5 yrs ago and will NOT put another cancer stick in my mouth, but you get what I'm saying. If not, PM me).
I got on the scales this morning expecting the worst and hoping for further stagnation. But I finally moved the scales down a little more!!! 2.5lbs ain't much, but I'll count it!
I know I've gone on and on to get to this point, but I'm wondering if others were stagnated when adding real foods and what you did to keep motivated. What about other times of plateau? What have you done when the #$!%@#! scale wouldn't move down?
Thanks for reading!
