I'm not really having a hard time with the dieting itself. Frankly, I never really ate much anyway. Well, to be honest, I never ate often but if I did eat one meal a day, it was a huge one. When I decided to lose weight 3 years ago (lost almost 80lbs), I exercised 6 days a week, ate right and it worked. I had to energy to do all that, you know? Now however, I am having a harder time. I don't have the energy to exercise, though I try to force myself to do it anyway. It's just that I'm not doing good enough. I'm also having a hard time keeping up my calories. I am only eating serving sizes but I'm only averaging between 800-1000 calories a day. The thing is, I have a hard time forcing myself to eat if I'm not hungry and most of the time I'm not hungry. Take yesterday for instance. I ate a banana and drank a cup of coffee for breakfast. I never used to eat breakfast so that is the hardest meal for me. I feel sick when I eat first thing in the morning. Then, because of my daughter's therapy I was late for lunch. I wound up eating around 3:30pm. I ate a BK Veggie Burger and a medium fry. Because it was so late when I ate lunch, I wasn't hungry at dinner time. I won't eat after 6pm so I wound up not eating dinner and therefore I didn't meet my calories. I am still losing weight (234lbs as of this morning) but I am losing it way too fast (on the 20th I was 244) and I think one of the biggest reasons is because eating only serving sizes, I'm not getting enough calories. I don't know. I guess I just have to keep working on it and hope that everything evens out.
