This week started the same, no weight loss. I have noticed that doing the Fuel Cycle with THM really helped me get off the plateau I was on but now that I'm back to "free styling" I'm stuck again.
I'm not going to pretend that it doesn't frustrate me but I have to keep reminding myself that I am healthier than I've been in years and food is fuel!
This week also was my 3 month mark on Trim Healthy Mama. This was a milestone for me because the most I am able to last on any given diet is 1 month. This week was specially hard because I came to the point that I was so tired of having to only be able to eat "certain" foods! I don't blame Trim Healthy Mama I blame my insulin resistance, the reason why I decided to try THM.
On Thursday I decided I wanted to take a full day off and I did! That's right, I said it, I did it! Yes, I felt horrible by the end of the day because of my insulin levels, body aches and of course the guilt, but I really needed to just not think of what I was going to eat or not eat in 3 hrs!
By Friday I was back to "normal" with THM. I did not weigh in to see if I had gained weight because of my day off and I'm fine with this decision. I am normally obsessed with the scale but the last few months I've learned that the scale shouldn't control how I feel. I'm a work in progress it's best to not check after days like Thursday.
Since I have noticed that I am getting tired of so much cooking and prepping for my diet, I am considering taking a week or two off and do something else in the meantime. I can't just not take care of myself but I do have to take a break. I have done Weight Watchers for years...this might me an option.
Do you ever feel this way? I hope I'm not alone on this!
I'm not giving up on my goals for this year and this is why I need to change things up. I don't know if the changes will happen this week or the next but I thought I'd share with you were I am at.
Have a blessed week!
