Eating too little??

Monday, July 15, 2013

My weight has stalled again (see: January through March). I've continued strength training sessions with a trainer three days a week and I've lost 2 inches since I measured on June 16 (note to self: measure and record it all again). Gaining muscle is better than fat loss and it will all even out, but it's not helping with Weight Watchers and my ultimate goal of attending for free :)

I'm actually concerned that I'm eating too little. I consistently earn 8-12 activity points with my ActivLink daily. I'm going to use SparkPeople to track my calories in addition to tracking points. I want to see how my point range matches up to my suggested calorie range. I think I need to start eating my activity points daily instead of saving them up for special occasions (like I should be using my bonus 49 points for). It's my new experiment. We'll see what happens.

    I just started eating a little more and better for breakfast. It seems to be helping me, because I don't feel as hungry the rest of the day. I hope you find the correct balance for you. emoticon emoticon

    It's always good to double check to see if you're eating enough. If you eat too little it's as detrimental as eating too much! I think that eating your activity points daily would be better also.

    As a member of WW, I also use active link (and a heart rate monitor, obsessed much??). I know that on Saturday, because of a long bike ride, I earned 17 AP but I also know I burned 2200 calories. I ate most of those points on Saturday, probably 11 of them. Definitely eat your AP's, weekly points for me are a gamble. If you are working out that much, then you might need to compensate a little bit. Have you asked your leader? Good luck!
