My body is so weird. Just when I think I am on the right track, I have a setback. At my 2nd Kmart weigh in I had lost 2 1/2 lbs. and was very happy. I continued on with what I thought was working for me--eating more veggies, staying away from sweets and excercising more. Well, for some odd reason I have gained it all back PLUS 1/2 lb.
Someone metioned to me that perhaps I was not eating enough calories and my body went into starvation mode with all the exercise I have been doing. It is so hard for me to wrap my brain around that. I mean, all my life I've been told and have read that you need to DECREASE calories to lose weight. Now, I'm reading more of the opposite. What is true?
Sometimes it is so hard to tell fact from fiction. It can be mind draining trying to figure it all out.
Anyway, I've decided to try increasing my calorie intake and see what happens.
