I’m STILL not back to my pre-carb nite self.. My stomach feels bloated and puffy (last week it felt flatter and slimmer and smaller, firmer..) and my weight hasn’t budged from 214. I try to rationalize it, like.. oh.. well yesterday I had pooped before I weighed myself and I was 214 and this morning I weighed myself but I hadn’t gone yet.. so surely there’s some value in that! Right..?
I know you’re not supposed to weigh yourself every day. I don’t care. I want to know. I know weight fluctuates (or not..) over time. I also know that I’ve been the same goddamned weight give or take like 5lbs for 2 years now. So.. stripping my body of carbs felt amazing. The results of eliminating most of the carbs from my diet felt incredible! I felt stronger, leaner… and then stuffing my face with crap for a few hours felt terrible, and now my only train of thought is.. WHAT WAS I THINKING?! Why did I do that??? Whyyyyyyyyyy… I could be sitting pretty at 209 or something right now but nooo. Instead, I feel like my body doesn’t work the same way as everyone else’s and well.. those carbs and shit I ate Sunday, it just grabbed onto and HELD onto.
Overreacting. I know. I’m curious to see how the next few days pan out. If I’m not back to my 210 weight (my Day 11 Carb Nite weight) then I’m not carbing up again. Nope. I’ll just go back to what works for me and eliminate the carbs. This whole ‘stuff your face with everything high glycemic’ mumbo jumbo is madness.
Maybe I should read some more of the book instead of just the ‘what to do and when to do it’ part….
