Weekly Wrap-Up September 11 to 17, 2021

In this week’s Wrap Up, we share our weight updates and food diaries for the last week. Lori changed things up a little and had a breakthrough in a weight loss stall, and Krista avoided eating her biggest temptation thanks to the accountability of the food diary.

Weekly Weight Loss

Lori

This past week, Lori decided to try to break through a stall she had experienced for 10 days straight. When we, talked about it, I first asked her:

    • Was she getting enough daily fluids?
    • Was she getting enough sleep?
    • Was she sticking to low-carb food during her eating window?

She seemed to be doing well in all three areas, so I recommended a longer fast. Sometimes, whether we’re fasting or using some other method to lose weight, our bodies just get used to what we’re doing and we stop getting the results we are used to. When this happens, changing one thing can make the difference. Adding more exercise, changing what we’re eating, or changing our fasting schedule are some of the things that often will mix things up enough to get that weight loss going again. Lori had been doing OMAD (One Meal a Day) for a while, so I recommended doing a longer fast. She did a 48-hour fast the next couple of days, and it worked! She not only broke through her weight loss stall, she also reached her lowest weight since fasting! And she got within 11 pounds of getting to a normal BMI. That’s a win-win!

Krista

My weight loss for the last week was . . . non-existent. I was up 2.2 pounds. But when she went back and looked at her weight for the last four weeks, she’s still averaging a loss of two pounds a week, which is her goal, so one week of a gain is fine with her.
