In my blog post, HEIDI HITS A STALL !!! , I expressed my complete and utter shock at Heidi's slow weight loss, now that she's back on the Kimkins Starvation Diet.
I think I now know the reason why. Here is a post Heidi just made on the Kimkins website:
"Re:Kimmer's Back on Track Challenge! 9 Hours, 12 Minutes ago
I think I need Boot Camp for a couple of weeks myself. I better go check it out. Too many "tastes" of this and that in my travels and it's not doing me any favors! On the other hand, a friend told me she's planning for maintaining through the New Years. Takes off some of the stress that accompany this time anyway. I think that has some merit ... then again for some people (raising my hand) it can be license to munch.
I'm only down 1 pound this week, which I'm not even sure about because the scale yesterday said 3 pounds. It's a new scale, what's the problem? Could be that my eating has not been as clean as it could be. Nobody can snack as "innocently" as I do, claiming items are on plan. No one to blame but me.
However, I am very glad to report I've got "jiggly puff" big time (thank heavens!) For anyone who doesn't know, that's when previously firm fat areas are now spongy ... my interpretation isthe "ready to melt" stage. The darned scale won't cooperate, but pants I wore last week are much baggier today (more than 1 pound worth). It has to be water retention (here I go rationalizing again ... sigh).
Someone invited me for pizza this evening (don't people know anything but pizza anymore???) which I turned down. There's a Japanese place in the same area where they cook in front of you, I think that will be much safer ... don't want to think about marinades!
This afternoon I'm going to roast 2 whole chickens that I got on sale. They're not huge, but for $2 and many meals, can't be beat. I stuff the cavity with onion remnants & crushed garlic cloves and the house will smell divine! I toss the carcass in a big pot with water to make soup broth. Suzy Homemaker."
I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.
