Anticipation is making me wait

Monday, January 14, 2013

emoticon All this waiting... Its not like I'm not doing anything. Working on some diet issues, playing with the calories that spark has set for me based on exercise. Two weeks ago it seemed like I gained 2 lbs every day. I was following the caloric intake, I was exercising but going nowhere. I'm just hoping that it was my body saying - oh you don't want to starve me you are feeding me. So everyday I do a little adjustment and check the scale the next morning. I sometimes wonder if the exercise portion is giving me more credit for calories than I'm actually burning. Its always hard to tell. But this has been my struggle for the past year. When I was losing weight I was having panic attacks and then had a problem with just eating. Me who never had a problem was trying to go gluten free and I would not eat until I could find something that fit what I needed. It escalated to me not being hungry and I hit the wall. Its all about learning your limits. It took a long time to work through the issues - and some of it had to do with allergy meds and allergy shots. I stopped all meds prescription or otherwise and starts sports massages and "recovered". So I'm trying not to mess too much with my food this time around. So I'm not doing gluten free, but am trying to cut back on carbs a bit. We'll see what happens moving forward.

    I like that song, but sorry you feel like you are waiting. SP automatically adjusted my calories, I don't know when or how but I guess they looked at my average workout and increased the calories. It worked to go up so my body was getting more fuel. Maybe you are worrying too much which increases your corticol and works against you. Okay I am getting too person, emoticon so I will shutup and just say GOOD LUCK! emoticon
