After worrying that my weight loss was too fast, I added in a few foods with higher carbs to try to slow down. It worked–I am exactly, to the ounce, the same weight I was last weigh-in. Sheesh.
I’m slightly discouraged. I know I’m not supposed to lose every single week until I hit my goal, but to stall so early is unfortunate. I have 51 more pounds to lose.
My next mini-goal is to lose 12 pounds in 12 weeks, and I’ve already lost 9.8. I need to lose 2.2 pounds over the next seven weeks. I know exactly what to do. This week, I will continue to focus on eating properly and drinking enough water. If I haven’t started losing again by next Sunday, I may have to cut out caffeine completely or cut out some of the foods I added back in.
Caffeine is known to cause stalls in low carb dieters, although it never affected my weight loss before. I may have to cut it out to see if that helps. There will be tears. From me, and quite possibly from the people around me while I go through caffeine withdrawal. Let’s wait and see what happens this week before I do anything rash, like quit MY ONLY VICE.
