Hi @Scobie Anne. I love the title of your thread. If you’re not losing, then maybe you’re winning.
Sometimes the body weight does not come off straight away because the improvements you have made in your diet by removing refined carbohydrates in packaged junk food (and hopefully removing industrial seed oils as well, in the same packaged junk foods) is happening in healing your body. That is, the nutrition you are now supplying is repairing and repleting in areas that it is needed.
Sometimes the body weight does not come off straight away because the improved eating and nutrition can generate a feeling of ‘energy’ and with this some people can’t sit still and get active, so they gain lean body mass while losing body fat mass. The weight loss doesn’t appear on the scales but clothes fit better.
There is also the positive thought that possibly you are quite metabolically healthy. It can be seen that men that have large bellies with lots of internal fat will rapidly respond to a low insulin diet (low carb) by losing that internal fat quickly. Whereas a person with fat distribution in healthier deposits under the skin, maybe around the thighs and hips, or belly fat under the skin rather than internally, will lose that body fat reserve more slowly initially. But then see it dropping off more quickly once their body and metabolism has become further fat adapted and can start drawing from those fat storage reserves.
Somewhere in your body you are winning by not losing. KCKO (Keep Calm Keto On)
