So I am struggling with getting under 200, so I looked at some (handwritten) journal entries from 2011 (the last time I got under 200, and I am realizing I only got down to 198 and then yoyoed until gaining.
Every time I've allowed myself to completely lose track, I have gained an extra fen than my startung losing weight. This basically means that if I give up, I'm likely to be 252 the next time I try, and that thought scares me...in a good way. I never want to get to be that big.
I know I had two cheat days this week which probably threw me out of ketosis, but I'm still frustrated that I have not gotten under 200. I really want to be there and I don't want some subconscious self doubt to stop me.
Has anyone else struggled to get under a weight they have been above for a long time? I know I can do this. I just have to stay committed, work out more, watch my portions (and maybe some of the foods I have recently reintroduced, such as greek yogurt and nut butters-triggers for me).
I'm at the gym right now to grade and get the blood flowing.
