Well, weighed myself after two weeks on Spark. 1st week at 1000 to 1300 calories , and second week at 1000 calories: I weigh exactly the same as when I started - 150.2 lbs. Ain't that a kick in my nalgas planas! It is not due to inaccurate recording of intake. I do have one or two glasses of wine (recorded) with dinner with my husband more often than not. The liquid carbs must be the major culprits.
You may say 1000 calories puts me in starvation mode but for me this is not the case. My physician increased a medication I take for mood swings as a side effect is appetite suppressant. Topiramate is the med. Less desired side effect is utter stupidity, I believe the medical term is aphasia. Pretend your brain is a closet filled with "hangers" of knowledge. In my case, the Topiramate janitor has come through and cleared away all the hangers, leaving me with this yawning cavern.
To top it off, I posted a Throwback Thursday photo of myself in my 20' s on Facebook. My hairdresser, a longtime friend, asked me who it was, said that person was totally unrecognizable from the mature woman I am now. He said it looked like a cruel joke and I should delete it, which the mortified me did.
Crap. Vanity bruised. I've had a hard life like everybody else. I guess it shows in my face. Here's an unrelated nice picture.
