A SparkWobble (SW) is what you have when you don't track for a few days and don't strictly speaking stay within calories. That should actually be 'strictly speaking', strictly speaking. In other words a little bingette.
I've had a two-week SW and have managed to clamber back on the wagon a couple of days and fallen off a couple of days and climbed back on it again today. At the weekend, I analysed a bit the reasons for the SW. So far as I can see the main one is that I was concerned I wasn't losing any weight (ref howls over the scales in Boots in previous blogs, I do not actually KNOW how much I weigh) so I cut my calories a bit, making my lower end my top end (about 1400) and my lower end 1200. I had not been having much difficulty keeping to about 1500 and so I expected this to be fairly easy.
Wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. I found myself going over calories hugely every day and feeling hungry all the time.
Is this psychological? No idea. But on Sunday I asked SP to reset my calories and the bottom end of the range is 1,450 and today I'm well on track to stay under that.
Moral of story: SP knows best.
