Crap, I meant to say I've LOST 44 pounds in 71 days, not LOSE. Sorry about that! I hate typos!
I've been so down on myself lately thinking that I've not been losing like I should. The scale just SITS at one weight and doesn't move at all OR it will flutuate between a few pounds. I'll go up a pound, drop a few ounces and stay that way for a few days, then will gain a pound and be right back where I was the week prior (maybe 6 ounces less.)
I weighed before bed this morning (I work third shift from home) and I woke up about 6 hours later. I left and went to town for about 3 hours. I came home and had lost a pound. I went over to my mama's house and had supper with her and drank a 12-ounce bottle of water while there. I came home a few hours later and had dropped another pound even after eating and drinking. The ONLY thing that I've done differently in the past few days is I started drinking a protein shake per day. Until 2 days ago, I wasn't able to get it down and keep it down so I wasn't drinking it. I was trying to get it in through food but wasn't doing that too well either. About a week ago, I started feeling dizzy and weak and decided that I HAD to drink it one way or the other, so I have been forcing it down and keeping it down. Is it possible that just two scoops of protein powder a day has kickstarted my loss or do you think I'm just a wonky loser?
