View Full Version : Encouragement with a weight gain!

Wanted to share an experience. This is R5 for me with a total loss of 50 lbs. On D5 of P3 I had a 2.75 weight gain. I had introduced no new foods, still on high protein days, had had all my water. The only difference was being on my feet for almost 8 hours running a huge event. The gain put me .25 over LDW ceiling, but since it was still the first week of P3 I chose to not do a steak day, but hold steady and keep eating the same.

This AM, poof!, the 2.75 was gone! Am now back to .25 below LDW. (Would love to hear if I did not follow protocol.) Moral of the story for me is: if you know it is not a gain caused by lack of water or a change in foods and it is early in P3 don't angst over a big gain since it is probably a temporary fluke.

Get mentally strong for Thursday if you are still in the beginning weeks of P3!!!!!

Because the weight gain was not food related no steak day would have been recommended by me. You are still early in Phase 3 and your body is sensitive to overexertion. Happy everything is back to normal.
