Hey y’all, so just like everyone else I struggle with my weight. I fluctuate back and forth. I used to weigh 140lbs and I felt fat, now that I weigh 160 lbs, I think wtf was I thinking?! I have this pooch and it just doesn’t want to go away! At 140lbs and at 160lbs. So here I am trying to get back on track because the older I get the harder it’s going to get for me to get to where I want to be. I don’t want to be skinny, I just want to look a certain way. I always start and stop, I never finish, between having a full time job and going back to school I am just drained after work. I hate waking up early in the morning too because I love my sleep. But I have to be ruthless and just get it done!
So I have been pretty consistent these past few weeks eating 1200 calories a week, having 0-1 cheat meals a week. I lost a couple pounds but I have hit a plateau and nothing is happening. Losing weight is so tricky! It is not easy! My body type retains so much fat if it feels like it’s not getting enough. So instead of losing weight, nothing is happening. I burn about 2000-2300 calories meaning if I’m only eating 1200 calories, I am only eating about 400 calories a day! Technically I am starving myself! This is unhealthy, but like any human you just want to get it done the fastest way. Well the fastest way isn’t always the best way. So what I’ve done is upped my calories to 1500 a day. I’ll see how that works out for a couple weeks. I am at 160lbs right now. Keep y’all posted.
