I Exceeded My Calories on Purpose Today
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Yep. You read that right. I exceeded them by 50. And I did it to try to stabilize my weight loss. I can hear it now, I must be crazy. Allow me to explain.
I have been managing my allergies really well now for the last couple of weeks. When food allergies are under control, significant weight loss can result becuase the inflammation is gone, and your body regains balance. I love my balance. I have no rashes, my hair is better, I don't itch or get tired, and I don't have severe stomach cramps and my throat doesn't close. The issue came when I acknowledged the fact that as happy as I am, and as good as I feel, losing a pound a day is probably not ideal.
I have been tracking everything I eat, staying in range of carbs, calories and protein. I take my multivitamin, and to be honest, have not been exercising that much. I say this because I don't want anyone thinking I am out here killing myself to be thin. I want to be healthy. There is a difference. I just don't want to screw this up.
So I want to see if the scale drops again by another pound tomorrow. I have been monitoring myself daily because of the allergy issues. I do see my specialist tomorrow for a check in. I have loads of questions, but the boyfriend is a tad concerned about a pound a day. I am still hooked on feeling the best I have felt in about a year...
Take care of yourselves. :-)
