I'm pretty frustrated that I stayed up too late last night, and I knew it was coming, bc it had been 7 hours since I had eaten by 1 a.m., but I didn't want to eat again! so then I ended up eating big time. While it's difficult to accurately estimate the damage, I think I did a pretty good job.
Thing I'm trying to figure out is, am I eating the right amount? It's very difficult for me to eat fewer than 2000 cals / day, since I am very active. But I see others' fitness and activity feeds, and I wonder why so many women are able to cut it down to 1500 or so.
I suppose the answer is that some of y'all are not eating "real" food, and I enjoy eating with others. Not always hauling around my own stuff is how I want to live long term, and, too much protein (yes there is such a thing) really taxes your system.
I don't want to be just making excuses, but I guess I'm looking for a little reassurance.
I can feel myself getting stronger, and I see more definition in my legs, but I'm not going to lose weight probably if I keep feeling so deprived and then subsequently binge.
I want to stop food tracking, but I just can't seem to stop! :)
I guess what I want "your thoughts" on most of all is, do you think I can lose weight if I really stick to 2000 cals a day (the upper end of my limit according to the time frame for my weightloss on SP) if I exercise this much? Take a look at my food and fitness tracker. I've been being brutally honest, tracking everything.
I burn about 3000 cal / wk.
