So I should have known better than to step on the scale weekly. My weight fluctuates a few pounds every day. I only had ONE day really having a cheat - a preportioned slice of cheesecake. I went over my calories yesterday, every other day I was under my caloric intake.
I was worried this was going to happen again....not being able to lose weight unless by EXTREME measures. By extreme, I mean doing atleast 2 hours of cardio a day. By eating 1000 calories a day. I've struggled with this problem since my diagnosis as Type I diabetic. Eating healthy, cutting out starchy carbs, working out...I would lose a pound, gain two, lose three, gain two....then I get frustrated and start eating cheeseburgers and fries again and put more weight on on.
I never had this problem with losing weight before I was diabetic. It feels like I have to do things 10 times harder to see much smaller results. I know everyone will say to stay positive and try to add just cardio...I've been through this every time I try to lose weight. I will not quit! I will continue to push forward and try to keep my motivation.
I will, however, not weigh in weekly but monthly. I need to do that to keep my sanity.
