It’s crazy how pounds creep back if I don’t stay diligent in my efforts to stay aware of my food choices. Sigh. 😒
I am not in trouble yet but I am see how and why folks lose a bunch of weight then slowly over the following weeks it creeps back on… sometimes more. Here is what I think happens:
1. There is an initial rush of excitement after losing weight. Your body is in burn mode so you are granted the ability to eat a bit more without any changes to your weight.
2. While being on track, you probably are earning less sugar and carbs and your body has gotten used to it. However, once you start eating a few more carbs and more sugar, your body will retain fluid, and worse, you get addicted to it again and start to crave it, where during weight loss you hardly thought of it.
3. You probably started exercising less and drinking less water.
4. Basically, you just quit paying attention…. eating more and eating out more.
I don’t know…. that’s just what happens to me. I get it, because I have done all of the above. So, I have gained 3.4 lbs in the past three months yeah, that’s not a lot but I need to reverse things now, not after I’ve regained 10 or 20… or 30+ pounds.
So, when you see this in my refrigerator… you know I’m back to business.
It’s found to be a green veggie week for sure. With summer foods coming back in it should be easier to get on track. I love veggies which you know if you have followed my blog. Going to do a lot of raw veggies this week to get a jumpstart. The fiber fills you up and helps with detox.
I’m ready! How about you??
Peace and love!✌🏽💕✌🏽💕✌🏽💕
