Today marks my last day of move. I have been making myself miserable and if I were losing weight it would be worth it, but, I am not. I haven't lost so much as an ounce in four days. I strongly suspect the two pounds I lost in the begining of this little adventure were water weight left over from my period. After talking with kind friends who also follow this way of eating and taking a long hard look at what I am seeking to gain from losing more weight, I realize the areas in which I want to lose lose can be slimmed down with the right types of exercise. I don't honestly want to be just a whole lot smaller. I feel healthy the way I am. I just want certain areas (upper arms :Op) not to jiggle. If I keep eating this way (restrictive MOVE misery as I like to call it) I am going to eat something a whole lot worse than a piece of cheese or an Atkins bar, purely out of misery. I enjoy this way of eating. I know I can eat foods on the induction list and easily maintain my current weight. I am planning to add them back slowly to make sure nothing causes a spike, which, I suspect none of them will. Then I am moving onto OWL and doing it the right way. I can't stay obsessed with the number on the scale. I will just make myself crazy. There is a reason we are to stay in induction a limited amount of time and I think my time is just about up. Have a blessed day all, and to all of you who supported me in this hail mary attempt to lose a few more pounds I am grateful beyond words. In the words of a friend I have got to start accepting and loving myself NOW. P.S. Also I ate a serving of cheese with my pickle snack and it was so AWESOME!!!!!!!
