I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but I didn’t think it would last. This week I’m up 2.5 pounds. It appears that the thing where my body stops responding to weight loss attempts has happened again. People get really explain-y to me when this happens, as if their theoretical diet knowledge trumps my years of experience with my body (and years of diet knowledge). Losing 200 pounds and working through diet after diet after diet to keep it off leaves an impact on the metabolism. Not a good one.
MyFitnessPal is probably sure I’m cheating on it by not entering everything I’m eating, but that is not the case. I had a slight wobble on Saturday, but otherwise I followed the program religiously and stayed in ketosis – following a diet and exercise program is one thing I’m really good at. So here we are, 4 weeks in, and keto has stopped working. I’m disappointed, but not surprised.
I’m not sure what happens next.
