Stuck in a Weight Rut

Daily weight: 164.6
Mood: Frustrated

I cannot shake this weight that I put on, and perhaps even more maddeningly, I don't understand why I am at my heaviest, when I am have been doing my best, and not even enjoying all the foods that I technically can in Consolidation.  Sigh.

Let me catch you up...Ever since I landed in consolidation around the holidays, then went to Africa, I have put on about 5 pounds from my True Weight. Then I went OFF THE RAILS. Gained a few more pounds (now I was into the low 160s) Buckled down, and a bit of it came off. Started working out again, really started eating Cruise phase style, and have managed to gain weight, and now maintain the gained weight. I am 10 POUNDS above my True Weight, and I. CANNOT. SHAKE. IT.  So frustrating, and I am sorry if I sound like a broken record, I am  just really frustrated.

My husband started weight watchers (which I did for years and maintained my former weight) and I am reminded of how healthy weight watchers can be if you do it right. I am so desperately trying to get off the weight I put on, that I am not eating the fruit and whole grain bread that I worked so hard to enjoy. I tried an attack phase. No budging. I upped the water and tea. Nada.  I know I went through almost a month long period in Cruise with this frustration, but at least then I was losing, and just maintaining - this round I have gained and am unable to lose it.

And sadly, the blogosphere is not much help. Those who are in consolidation and still blogging haven't had this problem, and those who maybe have no longer seem to be blogging. It feels very depressing and lonely.

Ham & Egg Cups

Weight: 164.6 (Yikes)
Mood: Struggling

Uggggghhhhhh. I'm stuck in a rut. I've been on a 3 day cycle for weeks now - 3 days of perfect Dukan, followed by 3 days of celebrations meals.  Due to this cycle I can't get past the hump of my post vacation gain. In an effort to just cut the crap and get back down to business, I am going to start eating more PP meals, and flushing myself out with green tea. Hopefully the weight loss from that will keep me motivated.

I even had traitorous thoughts about going to Weight Watchers.  I know. I told you I am not in a good place.  Well, my hell is your good fortune, and here's a new recipe for you - Pure Protein.  Is saw it on Pinterest via The Simple Delights Blog and I have no idea why I didn't think of this sooner. Delicious!

Ham and Egg Cups

Photo is not mine and is from

Preheat oven to 400
Spray a muffin tin (for however many you're going to make)
Place 1 piece of ham in a muffin tin, then crack and egg inside the "ham cup"
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake for approximately 12 minutes. Yolk is a tiny bit runny and the white is almost all set. Bake for more or less time depending on how well you like your eggs. I scrambled the eggs and then put them in the ham cups for my husband since he hates yolk. That takes around 13-14 minutes.

You can garnish with some cheese and scallions if you want. Enjoy!
