What no weight loss??????
Posted April 19, 2007on:
So, here I am in bed (still) – it’s 12.11pm. I am still on water and last night I discovered that the sight of food makes me feel a little queasy. I’ve been having headaches and yesterday I had to go back to bed for a couple of hours. I later took myself to a yoga class, I needed the boost and I’m glad I went. Somehow I’m finding the energy to do activities, although I’m taking it easy by not doing a home practice AND a class.
All the lovely food I bought has ended up in my hubby’s tummy and not mine. He’s been having huge salads all week and feeling great. He looks it too…
If you remember I weighed myself prior to going to Thailand and I wanted to see how much weight I could lose in 2 weeks. Now, for those who followed my journey knows’s I ate mostly delicious fruits and practised yoga twice a day, went swimming, walked along the beach. It was an active holiday. I left Japan weighing 65kg. I weighed myself when we got back and I weighed…….wait for it……
I lost nothing. Now, I did tone up quite alot and now I wish I had taken before and after pics.
I practised a style of yoga called ashtanga.
This is a powerful practise that really does engage the body, the mind and the breath.
Now, I plan on returning to this practice once I’m better and one of my favorite teachers is returning to Japan next month for 5 months and I will work with her to deepen my practice. I will also continue to practice my vinyasa flow with my regular teacher.
Should I be worried about the lack of weight loss? It would have been nice to have seen a little difference when I hoped on the scale. Doesn’t every girl think like that???
As of Sunday I am going to record my weight – weekly. I am also going to take photos bi-weekly. If there is no change on the scale, there is bound to be visual change.
I endeavour to start on the salad smoothies next week. For now I’ll stay on water…I have no choice.
Better emerge from the pit now.
