Its been 11 weeks now on 811.
I have felt fantastic throughout the process, losing weight and gaining energy and happiness with which I am so pleased.
However, since the 8 week mark my weight release has been at a stand still.. well rather I have gained 1 - 2 kg and for the past 2 weeks I have felt sluggish, depressed and generally lacking in energy.
Nothing has changed... I am eating my adequate amount of calories from sweet fruit (around 2500 per day), I am not eating any overts at this stage, I am drinking on average 4 litres of water per day, I get around 9 hours of sleep per night and I excercise around 45 minutes on average per day but I still feel 'MEH'
I don't want to focus on losing weight, I really don't. But being as overweight as I am it is a big deal and important that I continue to lose NOT gain.
Has anyone experienced this in the beginning of their journey, granted I am only 3 months in and the weight released has been phenomenal so far, but I want to know if i should change things up , or expect to gain more or what? Is what I am doing maintaining my weight (in your opinion) and does anyone have any suggestions to kick it into gear?
My weight obviously plays a big role in my mood - it is something that I am trying to work on but will take time. After living a life that was full of disgust for myself, shame and abhorrence. I guess I need reassurance that I am on the right track.
I know there is a lot of talk about 'not focusing on weight' - but take it from someone who is obese - this is no easy feat.
Any guidance or advice would be appreciated greatly.
