Big Loss On the Scale This Week!
Wow! I can’t believe my big loss on the scale this week. Here it is, 3:30 in the afternoon and 8 hours after I’ve weighed in, I’m still awing over the number. A few days ago, I posted that I was feeling lighter so I’d snuck onto the scale early and was pleasantly surprised. Imagine today when I got on the scale and saw an even greater weight loss.
How much did I lose?
My big loss was a whopping six pounds! This is no easy feat for a lady my size. That’s almost a pound a day! And while I’m not proud of what I’m about to admit, I did not exercise this week. We’ve been so swamped with work that I’ve had very little time to do anything but work, clean and take care of the kids. Here lately, hubby and I have been taking walks with our youngest minion or doing yard work for exercise. And I don’t care who you are, yard work is exercise.
What was different this week?
A few things were different this week. For starters, in my earlier post that I mentioned, I did IF (intermittent fasting). While I did IF, I consumed fewer calories than I normally do and that was mainly because it was hard to get them all in with only eating two meals per day. But even during a “normal” day, I try to stick below my recommended macros to ensure weight loss. In addition to that, I cut out my morning coffees with HWC and cool whip, and I increased my water intake by 2-3 glasses per day.
One more contributing factor to my big loss….
I hardly ever snack. Early on, I learned that snacking is BAD–no matter how “healthy” it is. Sure, it’s nice to have an occasional snack every now and then, but not on a daily basis. If I had to guess, during a typical keto week, I might have 2-3 snacks per week. This past week, when I saw my big number, I did ZERO snacking. At all. If I got hungry, I waited until I was hungry enough to make a meal and then I ate.
Here’s to (hopefully) another good number next week. I’ve officially lost more than 20 pounds now (22 lbs) since starting at the beginning of the New Year (1-2-17 to be exact) and it’s only been 6 weeks.
