This is why we give up. Weeks like this. I gained weight. Gained. 2.3 pounds. This is the part of starting a diet that we have a hard time getting past. When it seems that it isn’t working no matter how much work you put into it. I counted every calorie, stayed within my target, and burned an extra 200-300 calories on top of that each day and gained weight. It’s beyond frustrating.
I have a few theories. There is the dreaded “time of the month” where I tend to take on a little water weight and the possibility that my Fitbit isn’t that accurate with the amount of calories I’m burning so I am off on my count. But, mostly, I think it has more to do with my autoimmune condition. I have mentioned before that a keto diet is the only diet I have ever been on where I lost weight. I thought I could tweak it a little, keep my carbs low but not extremely low, and pay attention to my calories but that seems to not be working.
So, once again, I am changing things up. Starting this week, I am going back to keto. It will be hard. I know once I do it for a month or two it will get much easier because my cravings disappear. It does stay a little tough, though, because I feel it becomes a bit monotonous. You can only eat meat so many ways. But I am going to stick it out because I feel my best on it and I lose weight on it.
So, there it is. I gained weight. But I am not giving up. I am simply changing the game plan.
