Diet Update 13

This week I put on a kilogram. I stuck to the diet all week long. I was well under my limit most days. I still gained a kilo. FUCK MY LIFE.

I suspect that it might be down to fluid. My right leg is really swollen at the moment. Like having difficulty getting into leggings that fit just fine 10kg ago swollen. It feels like a fucking balloon and my right knee is being a whiny bitch about it. I’m used to it complaining when I stand or sit but now it’s complaining while I’m in bed. Bitch, I am literally horizontal what more do you want?

It’s so frustrating to spend so much time and effort on this damn diet and get so little back. I don’t know what to do. I don’t have a plan except to keep going. The only other thing I could do would be to cut back on the carbohydrates even more but I really don’t want to do that because it’s just so miserable.

Hopefully it won’t be too long before I get referred to someone who can do something about the fluid.

  1. Try not to let it bug you too much. Fluctuations of a pound or so are very common. It’s the longer term trend you want to pay attention to.

    It’s true that 75% weight loss is diet/nutrition. One big way to help that is calorie counting, which I see you are doing with MyFitnessPal. Another is meal planning. I like to cook several meals ahead and pack them ahead of time (especially if you aren’t at home for lunch, etc.). I’ll have some sort of lean protein (chicken, beef, fish), some veg (often I just steam some spinach or green beans), and a little bit of starch (roasted sweet potato is one of my faves). That way the food is ready, I’ve pre-weighed it on the food scale, so I know how much I am eating, and I know that it’s healthy. I also waste less food because it’s already cooked and ready to go.

    The other 25% is exercise and getting enough rest. Cardio is good, but the truth is you’ll burn more weight (esp. fat) with strength training. But a bit of both is best. You don’t have lift a lot of weight. Just bodyweight calisthenics can have a great effect.

    1. Thanks for the comment.

      I’m terrible at meal planning but that is something I’m working on. I’m intending to get back into weight training but I really need to sort my house out so I have room to do it.
