I’m feeling so despondent. I had lost 3st 7lb since December last year on the 800 calorie blood sugar diet which I have been thrilled with.
However, over the past few weeks I have given myself a break and averaged about 1200 calories a day, which I thought I would maintain on or maybe gain a few pounds on.
Now either the increase in calories or possibly water retention (which I think I have in this heat swollen ankles and very bloated) have meant that I have gained 7lbs in just the past week!!!
I’m so shocked and horrified that I’m considering buying a new set of scales. I just keep staring at the numbers in disbelief. Is this really possible? I’m so scared I’m going to now undo all the hard work I’ve done and feel powerless to stop it.
Does anyone have any similar experiences or can anyone who has been in s similar situation offer any advice or support please?
