Thursday Weigh-In - June 1st:
06/01/2017: +1.4 pounds
Total lost: 33.6 pounds
Current Weight: 196.4 pounds
Well, considering how much binging there was last week, a 1.4 pound gain isn't too bad and I'm determined to make that number go down by next weigh-in day.
Today is also day 4 of detox and the headache is worse than ever. I've tried everything I could think of and more and nothing seems to be working. I haven't been able to get to the gym due to the pain or do much of anything except what absolutely had to get done. I'm really hoping to get back to some serious workouts tomorrow though.
I've also decided to allow some more carbs into the plan but there is a set plan for that. First of all, it has to be 100 net carbs or under and second, it has to only be foods that don't make me binge. I've been working on a list and it's not everything that makes me binge, it's the junk and the simple sugars and carbs. There are plenty of healthy carbs I can still eat (fruit, berries, root veggies, oatmeal, etc) that I've been avoided that don't make me overeat and will probably give me more of the nutrition that I need.
I still want to keep it low-carb, I'm just not sure I want to do strict keto. I figure some days it'll be under 50 net grams and some days it'll be over (especially days when I'm spending two hours in the gym) and I can live with that. But there is an entire list of foods that, at this time anyway, are just unacceptable and will not be eaten at all.
Maybe someday they can be allowed in, or in tiny portions when I have people around me that will keep me from binging, but basically things like pastries, bakery items, pasta, rice, store-bought bread, fast-food, junk food, desserts, "food-like products" etc are all on the "choosing not to eat" list.
I'm also going to continue to "detox" from simple carbs and sugars. That part is staying the same. The only thing that's changing is upping the healthy, complex carbs.
I'm going to try this for this coming up week and see how it affects my health, my weight, my energy levels and my headache and then go from there.
