Sigh. The Laws of Physics Break for Me! The Universe Defies my Will!

Sunday, May 20, 2018

"For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."

Yeah, MY willpower is strong emoticon -- I've been doing everything i should be doing emoticon and eating ONLY 850 calories a day -- whilst doing keto -- and I SHOULD BE dropping weight like crazy.... but I'm not.
I've got high energy -- all the energy to lead my aerobics classes and come home and cook and clean and garden, etc. I never feel hungry; and I crave nothing -- actually, oddly, most of the time I am having to force myself to eat more (protein and calories) to meet my macro nutritional requirements.

Okay, I guess that isn't willpower; that's the power of feeling stuffed! emoticon But c'mon! 850 calories a day? I'm used to eating twice that! And I'm weighing and measuring everything I put in my mouth with the exception of pure tap water..... And I'm losing maybe a pound a week! And I've only been doing keto for 6 weeks!

THAT is NOT an equal and opposite reaction! If I was a child I'd be stomping around throwing a temper tantrum -- I certainly have the inclination AND the energy for it! emoticon

I'm flabbergasted! I don't know what to do! I LOVE how I feel. I love all this energy and not ever feeling hunger or cravings.... but I wanna lose 50 pounds before I die of impatience! I'd LIKE to lose a steady 2 pounds a week -- that's a normal healthy rate! Is that asking too much of the universe?!?

    Welcome to my world ... won't you come on in ... miracles still happen now and then. But patience is a part of life for me -- Yoyo if frustrating and I am so sorry you are going through it too. Is your blood work good? Is there healing going on that doesn;t show on scales? I don't have solutions - I can't fix it and I am soooooo sorry. Hang in there and keep being consistent and let me know when you have a break through!!!
