So... 10th of May I found out I have arthrosis in my hip joint.
I weighed 124 kilos.

So, I started dieting. I ignored everything except that I have to eat less calories. I have been eating between 1000 and 1600 calories every day. Or, that is what I was supposed to be eating. There were days when I ate almost 3000 calories, and then the following day I would eat only some 700 calories. All in all, I ate about 1500 calories a day.
I lost about a kilo every week.
Until last week.
June 22nd I weighed the 118 kilos I was supposed to weigh.
On Wednesday, 26th, I weighed myself and I was 117, 5.
I fell on my knees thanking God and crying of gratitude.
Next weekly weigh-in. And I'm 119. 

How can this be? I'm shocked.
My hubby says that it might be the monthly water retention doing it's business.
Ok... it might.
Today I weighed myself again. I'm 120.
I'm panicking.
I can't eat anything ever again! I HAVE to be 116 next Saturday! I MUST!!!

I am hungry, but I keep telling myself that I can't possible be hungry. I weight 120 kilos.

  1. I know this pattern, I've spend the last 10 years struggling to lose any weight, slowly gaining a bit more every year. Even hard work lead to negligible lost.

    Then I had stomach troubles, so we did test with my doctor, it turned out gluten was not my friend. Since I cut it out of my food, I lose 2 to 3 pounds a month doing nothing special. My body was stressed and hoarding fat just in case. Plus, it worked just the same for my clone, as I happen to have an identical twin sister.

    Your problem may not be gluten, but there must be something you eat which doesn't mesh well with your metabolism. Maybe you should try the FODMAP diet for a month or two, which is design to soothe upset guts, and see if things change for the better.
