And She’s Off…

169.6

It's over—the 2 month plateau is officially over. (I was 170.4 on September 24th, the day I left for Chicago). In the two months since, my weight bounced to a high of 176 and down to 171 but not once did I get the breakthrough I was looking for into the 160’s.

I have my sweet spot back and have lost my appetite after my fill of 0.1cc on Nov. 8th. There are days that I have actually forgotten to eat! I will also say I am back on Wellbutrin and don’t know if that had anything to do with my appetite. I was basically eating out of control until my fill and I was sad. Since then the scale has been nudging slowly down until 169.6 appeared on the scale this morning—a number I haven’t seen since I was on weight loss drugs in the 90’s.

There was no magic. In fact I ate terribly on Thursday as those of you in the States chowed down on Thanksgiving turkey. Here is my confession:
  • Coffee, 4 fiber cookies,
  • ~ 1 cup fish and mashed potato pie
  • 100g Milk Chocolate bar from IKEA (~3 oz)
  • KFC—1 thigh WITH skin, 10 French fries, container of green coleslaw
  • 2 bowls of frozen yogurt with chocolate chips
Really. Up until yesterday I was eating pretty lean, low fat and small amounts. It seems that in the past if I have a very fat laden day, my body can’t seem to process the crap and I lose weight. I have never figured it out. And I didn’t have a heart attack. Brings back memories of the low-carb diets that recommended eating lots of bacon, eggs and steak.

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. The feast of food just might kickstart your next weight loss phase. Just wanted to let everyone know that plateau’s do end and fills are really important. I’m off…for the next 15 pounds.

This is really encouraging! but come on, forgot to eat? I have never in my life forgotten to eat! I may have forgotten that I've already eaten, and eat again, but forget to eat? I long for those days! lol! So happy for you to be over the plateau, and it is very encouraging to see that a fill makes all the dif, as I am not where I wanted to be with my first fill, but to know that it will come with an additional fill is very encouraging! Have a wonderful day!
