Calorie Conundrum (May 10th)

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

So I noticed that I'm mostly staying under my 1200 calorie intake. Which I'm hearing constantly, isn't good because your metabolism slows down and you stop losing weight. Which explains why I'm having a hell of a time losing weight!!! I thought that once I started dieting that cutting back was going to be hard. Come to find out, eating enough is harder!!! My brain doesn't want to put food in my mouth for fear of gaining weight. "You've had three 'meals' today and a snack. You're done. Regardless of calorie count." *Sigh* Guess it's gonna take more mind over matter than I thought and in a different way than I originally thought. And what makes it harder, the more you exercise, the more calories you burn, the more you intake. Ack!!! I sure wouldn't mind some constructive criticism and support if you guys have some tips or suggestions. I find I'm not nearly as hungry as I thought I'd be. Especially with upped water intake and exercise routine. If it's not one thing it's another!!

    Maybe make your snacks or meals higher in calories... nuts, dairy, things like that can add up quick.

    You've got a point...I might need to raise my level up a bit. I'm losing maybe a pound every week to week and a half, but I'm working my tail off!!!

    I hit my max or above everyday but I am drinking lots of water and I am always reaching my goal of 1 pound a week loss. I don't want to loose more. I intend to keep it off. Mine is more than 1200 ? Are you sure this is o k ?
