I was looking forward to jumping on the scale today. I felt like I lost at least 2 pounds, if not more. Imagine my surprise when the scale said I'd lost a measly half pound. A HALF POUND?! How can that be? I'll admit, I feel my past obsessions closing in on me. I've long been obsessed with the scale but I promised I would only weigh myself once a week - I weighed myself 3 times this week....each time getting more frustrated that it wasn't showing a different number. How can a 315 pound woman eat 1200 calories and NOT lose weight??????
I'm not saying I'm gonna give up because that isn't an option. I'm going to remind myself that my clothes feel looser, I have more energy and .....well, I"m sure something else has changed but I'm still feeling pissy and can't think of anything else.
Rather than wallowing for the entire day I went back to look at my food tracker to see if I could find the problem. 3 out of 7days I ate less than 1200 calories, three days right at 1200 or 50 above and one day at 1400. I've heard that if you don't eat enough that you won't lose weight (that is so weird). This week I'm going to up my calories to 1250 and make sure I hit it everyday.
