I weighed 180.5 this morning - a loss of 5 lb. since my unexplained gain that I was just about ready to blame on the scales :-) See to the right.
I didn't lose the muscle I probably gained while sitting here quilting for two weeks due to the awful weather here in Indiana.
I wasn't in starvation mode and needed to eat more because my body was all confused and holding on to food.
I always put some senna tea in my "tonic" as I call it. I have a 64 oz. drinking jug with a straw and when I get that down in one day that's 8 glasses of water. I do drink some herbal teas so I count that as the other two glasses. I haven't gotten to the place of drinking 1/2 my body weight in ounces of water yet. I would rather lose weight so that what I am drinking is enough :-)
Along with the senna tea (great for the bowels) I put in some of my garlic/ACV/honey mixture. I add just a little crystal light (1 tsp.) to cover up the taste. It's pretty bad. I fill up the jug with water. I have gotten this down two days in a row and let's just say things are moving right along.
In the past that unexplained gain would have caused me to want to throw in the towel and have a binge which I have done more than once.
I can use myself as an example proving my point that staying the course will result in success regardless of a few potholes here and there.
Be careful out there today.
