It happens every time, without fail.
When I do a plateau-breaker, they tell me that you’re not supposed to lose a lot DURING the plateau-breaker, but they’re designed to get you going like gang-busters AFTER the breaker is over.
Not for me.
I lose like a rock star the week of, and then… nothing.
As I already posted, I lost 3.75 lbs last week – the week OF the breaker. Weighed in Monday and was UP .5 lbs. Now, they said this is fairly common because of water retention from all the increased sodium (I figured as much) from the unlimited skin-on, meat-on-the-bone protein allowed for the two days prior.
But today when I weighed in, I was only down that 1/2 lb, putting me right back to where I was on Saturday, meaning I’ve lost NOTHING so far this week. I did ACV 3 times on Saturday, cut the sodium back a bit on Sunday and did ACV again Monday and AGAIN last night.
So, we’re trying something new. I am going to alternate removing one starch and one fruit every other day. So today, I’m removing a starch, tomorrow a fruit, then a starch, etc.
One of the counselors had told me that when I had 15 lbs to go, they were going to switch me to Plan 1, but I am at 12.5 lbs to go and they don’t want to do that until nothing else works.
I’m open to seeing how this goes, since I would have to permanently remove one starch if I moved to Plan 1 and this way I only have to do it every other day.
I’m definitely running out of time to get to balance 4 weeks before we leave for Texas, so I will do whatever it takes to get to goal – I have 5 weeks (after this week) left to get to goal. I’m going to give it my best and keep praying that God will help get me there!
