LCHF #3 – Losing Centimeters

Continued from… LCHF #2 – I’m Smiling

It’s been a week in which I have been experimenting with my food, to get more diversity into what I eat. It resulted in staying well within the carbs limits I have set myself, but not within the fat limits. It’s not like I went over the daily fat limits every day, but I had the feeling my body needed some adjustment. Something else I started with this week was a magnesium supplement to settle my tummy. That worked!

Yesterday I stepped on the scale and was very disappointed when I saw that I have ‘gained’ half a kilogram, compared to what I weighed on Sunday last week. Thankfully, I have read that one shouldn’t focus only on what the scale says, but that taking measurements is important too. I decided to take my measurements again (I did that on the first day of the diet too) and was happy to see that I have lost some all over:

  • Overbust: 5cm
  • Underbust: 2.5cm
  • Thighs: 1.5cm each
  • Hips: 5cm
  • Waist: 6cm

To say I am happy, will most likely be an understatement, but it sure countered the disappointment of the ‘weight gain’. This morning I stepped on the scale again, and despite yesterday being my ‘one-day-in-the-week-day-of-sin’, my weight today is the same as it was on Sunday last week. Oh and, what I forgot to mention is that the difference in weight between Saturday and Sunday was 1.1 kilograms, which now puts me at a weight loss of 4.2 kilograms in 3 weeks.

Another thing I do every Saturday is to check whether and how far my body is in ketosis. I did the same on Saturday, and from what I have read about ketosis, I would say that my fat reserves are being used quite nicely at this moment.

On to week 4 it is and hopefully then, the scale will have a totally different number as first digit, a number I haven’t seen in over a year!
