So I have lost 10lbs since starting on August 31st (YAY ME!!!!). I use to struggle with staying within my calorie limit without going over, now i have the opposite problem. I have noticed that my appetite has decreased significantly in the last few weeks. Which now causes me to be under my calorie limit. Sometimes i am under by almost 50%. I am eating smaller portions and typically eating 2-3 meals a day depending on my schedule, but i don't want to start adding empty calories to my diet just so i can get in my calorie limit. I did this once before and it just resulted in me binge eating and having more and more craving, thus causing me to put on the 45lbs i had lost years before and bringing me up to where i was when i started this journey.
I will admit that there are days when i'm really not hungry, but have to force myself to eat because otherwise i would be starving myself and that is one way i DO NOT want to lose weight. I have also had days where i realize i haven't eaten all day because i haven't felt hungry and forgot about it, then I instantly run to go eat something almost in a panic because like i said, i don't want to starve myself to look beautiful. When i realize i haven't eaten all day i tend to go on binge eating sprees to make up for the 1 or 2 meals i missed and get my calories in, which i know isn't healthy either (i want to make it clear that these days are rare, but are becoming more frequent)... I guess in away, i have cut food out as an object of importance ( AKA: eating non-stop just to fill a void), but I still need to be healthy. I just don't know what to do please help!!!!!!!!!!!
