Nov 21 - 3 weeks of month gone - no weight change even with Egg Fast

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

OK - I am discouraged to not see any scale movement - just a half a pound one day and back the next during thi egg fast - of course the final weight will be tomorrow but then still have to brace for rebound increase after stopping the fast - --
But have learned good feeling on this fast: I CAN do it!!! I can deal with boreing food choices better than too many and confusion. I can continue intermittent fasting up to 12-14 hours on long term basis and feel healthy doing it. The exercises have increased a bit more and am very sore but accomplishing and stronger for the efforts.
I will NOT give up, I will still hope for ONEderland by Christmas and I will continue to WORK hard at good-for-me choices, criteria and efforts... I will overcome!

    SO frustrating! I went for a couple months without any significant change too. But I am surprised you did not see anything with the egg fast!
    A few areas to think about....
    Are your calories too low? I lost nothing at 900 Cals but am doing better now at 1500 - 1800
    Are you using artificially sweetened beverages? These are killers for some people. Apparently it gets your body "looking" for sugars and slows down the fat metabolism.... (OMG just realized that may be my problem this week! LOL!)
    Do you suffer carb creep? Not with the egg fast I'm sure.
    Are you counting net carbs or total carbs - some people have to count all carbs which is much more restrictive.
    Too much protein? Your body converts extra protein into carbs....
    And finally - sometimes we just plateau and have to keep pushing to see a shift. SIGH...
    You WILL get there. Time and Patience....

    I am feeling the same. Working out and being very careful about my food choices but the scale isn't budging much. I am focusing on the fact that my clothes are fitting better. Shape is changing even if scale isnt
