5/3 Weightloss Wednesday: There’s More to Weight Loss Than Food

5/3 Weightloss Wednesday: There’s More to Weight Loss Than Food

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday!  This has been an interesting week but before we get into that, here are the numbers.  I am at 214.6 lbs which means I have lost 185.4 lbs so far but it also means I have gained about 5 lbs in the last few weeks.  The good news is, I think I figured out the issue.

I talked last week about how hungry I had been and how crazy my appetite was getting.  It was like I had gone back to the old me where I had to eat every few hours to be satisfied.  Well, what I didn’t talk about was the other thing that was going on in my life because I didn’t realize the relevance.  I have talked about how my Dad passed away a few weeks and how tragic it was because his death from a stroke was the final act of a body that was just broken down over a lifetime of smoking, eating too much, drug abuse and just generally not taking care of himself at all.

His wishes were to be cremated and because it all happened so fast, I wasn’t able to see him before he was gone.  Last weekend we put together a little memorial for him at my Mom’s house and as that date got nearer, I found myself feeling more and more anxious about it.  I’m not totally sure what was going on but looking back I realized that one of the things I wanted to eat was Cream of Wheat and the only time I’ve ever had that was when my Dad cooked it for me growing up.  Looking back, it all seems pretty obvious.

So once the memorial was done, everything went back to normal.  I was able to get back to the Intermittent Fasting I was doing and any cravings for carbs have disappeared and I have actually lost weight since then.  At one point last week I had gotten all the way up to 220 lbs so I’m moving in the right direction again.

Hopefully this trend continues!  How are you doing this week?  Let me know in the comments!
