I'm so glad that I found you gals!!!
I have noticed this EXACT same thing. I have to watch my calories like a BOSS. Under 1200 or I maintain my weight ... no matter how much I exercise. I have to practically run myself to death in the exercise department. I have always wondered if I had some underlying condition that was preventing me from losing weight --- but every time I convince my doctor to run the tests .... they all come back that I'm perfectly normal. BLAH! I'm so abby-normal it's not even funny, what do those silly scientific tests know.
I also have to be careful of "SPLURGE" days ... because I will lose all sense of self-control. I don't know why. My cousin is a personal trainer and keeps telling me that splurging one day week will not hurt me .... but it does. Because once I splurge -- I can't stop at just one day. It will turn into a WEEK of splurging and then I'm too ashamed to get back on the scale.
