OK.  This is fine.  It’s only water weight.  Last night I had a butt-load (literally) of pasta and bread.

I had a totally on-diet day today to make up for yesterday.  Though I have to say I’m feeling a little hungry now!  I didn’t get all the exercise I’d have wanted – a friend came over so there was no time.

Anyway, here’s hoping I can keep this up for as long as it takes to nip this stagnation in arse…  I’m so ready to see the mid 80s!!  I know, it doesn’t help to go out to fundraising dinners and eat carby foods.  I’m trying really hard to regain that energy and resolve that I had at the beginning of the diet – but it was easy back then, the weight kept coming off.  I’m starting to feel a bit despondent, and perhaps resigned to the fact that this is where my body wants to be, at least for a while longer.

This is actually where my weight loss stopped last time I was on a major health kick, five years ago.  No matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to break through where I am now, not without a lot of sweat and starving.  But I refuse to starve myself, and I don’t want to make sweating at the gym my life.  Another week of this and I’m going to suck it in and follow Matt’s Method – my friend who’s been encouraging me to do some serious weight lifting.  I know that the water weight will fluctuate as my muscles repair themselves, but I’m at the point now where I think my body might need some kind of serious jolt.
