...and the weigh-in was as bad as i expected it to be. Up 1.2# from last week, and i've been PERFECT. It's water -- there's no delusion about that part -- i can feel it all over my body. It's still discouraging, though.
This is where temptation creeps in. Not temptation to quit, but to TWEAK. I considered having today as a water-fast day, or a fat-fast, and not recording my weight till tomorrow. I considered dropping the coconut milk because of the big calorie load -- and i don't "believe in" calories! (That's a figurative expression, because of course they exist....) I was tempted to add in sucralose ahead of schedule, because i'm quite sure it has minimal impact on me; then i could drink tea instead of coffee (and i must have it sweet).
Time to get tough with myself. I'm going downstairs and make myself a big bacon-and-egg scramble. I'm not going to change a bloody thing. The coconut is IN, and two full meals a day are IN, and sucralose, nightshades, etc. are OUT. I'm GOING TO force myself to drink more water throughout the day (i thoroughly dislike water-chugging). The bad numbers are going in the record, and with any kind of luck, next week's will seem far more impressive than they would have looked otherwise.
