I have been on a diet since July 9 and I have lost probably about 25 pounds. At the moment I seem to be at a standstill, even though I am sticking quite closely to my diet.
I am on the GI diet, which is full of fibre, fresh fruit and veggies and no sugar. There are lots of food choices and I am never too bored with it. I did attend a mandatory computer course last week where I broke down and ate a bit more than I should have, I would say due to stress and the fact that my diet food was not readily available. This is a new and complicated system we all HAVE to learn and NO ONE wanted to be there! I didn't mind being there, but the atmosphere was fairly hostile! What WAS available were candies on every table ( I didn't indulge TOO much), catered breakfast by Tim Hortons, lunch from Subway or Swiss Chalet or Chinese food or pizza. We were rather stuck in our work room and I did break down my diet defences A BIT. I didn't do too badly on the Monday and Tuesday.
I have been back on my diet this past week. I have not gone overboard with food in any way. I am a bit worried because I don't seem to be losing any more weight. Granted, I have not been weighing myself because I don't want to obsess, but I just generally FEEL that I have stopped losing.
Healthwise, I felt much better since starting the diet, but as of last week my arthritis pain is back with a vengeance and I am not a happy camper.
What gives? I seem to be at an impasse.........
