Well, I think I will go outside and take advantage of the fact that the ground isn't frozen and prepare the area that will be next springs ornamental garden area.

I have been hungry all day. Not just the "I want something" pick at this or that but stomach growling, churning I need to eat something NOW. What the H&^%!!. I'm not used to actually being hungry, and typically when I am it's becasue I've "forgotten" to eat and way past time for a meal. Today, however, after just 2 or 3 hrs, post meal, my stomach is back to growling etc. Not comfortable. Hope I can sleep tonight.

Well, yesterday's meals made up for the "calorie deficit" of the past few. Interestingly enough, although it seems very high to me, it's still within what the calorie figureing thing said. The only thing I went over in was the carbs. No surprise there. Comfort food.
Today I started out a bit different by adding onion, green pepper and a pinch of shredded cheese to breakfast which upped the calorie content a bit.
So, today is a new day. A chance to learn, a chance to do something different.

Ok, so I'm attempting to edit my nutrition tracker. Nothing. won't let me. Not happy.
Also, for my total calories for today so far it comes to 459. That's breakfast and lunch. Now, I know that supper will be higher. Husband likes meat and potatoes "full meal deal" so, since I'm home, I cook. Haven't actually decided WHAT to cook yet, but since I have to go grocery shopping I guess I'll figure it out. But, at this point in the day my calorie count should be much higher. Not sure how I'm gonna deal with this "increasing my calorie thing".

Well. I just went on site that takes your ht, wt, exercise and age. Plugged those in and what I got back came as rather a surprise. I also did the BMR calculation. What I found out is........apparently I don't eat enough. The BMR came in at 1884 cals. That assumes I never get out of bed. That's what my body needs to survive, not even thrive. To maintain my wt. I'm supposed to eat about 2261 cals. Two pounds a week loss=2240. So, I can only conclude, since I generally eat between 1600 and 1800 cals/day that my body is in "starvation mode". I guess I need to figure out a way to increase the calories in the right way to promote wt loss.
The problem is......I eat three meals a day. (worked very hard to teach myself to eat breakfast every day). I have a snack at night (I try to make it a good one). I'm not sure what else to add!!
I can only hope that with more consistant exercise, I will be hungrier and it will become easier.
