I have been trying for almost a year now to reach my first goal; getting below 230. The first few months I was less than successful. Actually went up to my all time high of 242. Then, just recently, I suddenly found myself staying in range with the occaisional problem of meeting the minimum calorie requirements. Don't know why. I'm assuming (have to be careful about assuming) that my body is adjusting it's needs. Going over the calorie top has become a rarity, instead of a weekly standard and then...Thursday. I went insane. Haven't had an "insanity" day for awhile, but, boy, did I ever have one Thursday. Ice cream, sherbert, 1/2 a can of Spam just to name a few of the things I consumed and consumed is the word. I didn't just eat, I consumed everything in my path. My calories were so far over the top, I'm not even sure what the number was for that day. Couldn't bring myself to look. I just entered the data and wrestled with myself to keep it from getting any more out of control. My regular weigh-in day is Friday. I just couldn't get on the scale. I was certain I was going to be up, way up. Finally got on the scale this morning and had to weigh myself 3 times before I would believe what I was seeing. Almost broke into tears when I saw 229.6. I keep going back to look at the entry. 229.6. That's almost 13# total. WOO HOO!!!
7/6/10. Okay, I had a rough week calorie-wise. Could have been TOM induced. In any case, I had put 3# back on and then hit some major bingeing the last couple days. So I really expected to have put some more back on. Well, I just did a sneak peak on the scale. Had to reweigh 5-6 times. Kept coming up with 228.4. I lost the weight I regained PLUS ANOTHER POUND! WOOOOHOOOOO!!!
