Starving 

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.

  1. You’re going to hard on yourself, you can loose weight without feeling hunger, without being energy depleted and probably in the same speed if not faster than you are now. I recommend reddit fitness section, learned a lot there. This sounds strange but you should eat more than what you are consuming now with that kind of activity.

  2. I’ve learned that I HATE hate hate (did I say hate?) waking up early too but once you get into a routine it becomes SO much easier!! The only good thing about waking up early is I feel like I have a much longer day to get stuff done. I usually get up about 6 and drink a cup of coffee and eat a bagel then go to the gym and run a few miles then go back at night after dinner! Maybe this helps (I hope). Best of luck!!

  3. Great post thanks for sharing. My advice to you is take it slow. The path to a healthy lifestyle is a marathon not a sprint. Make the changes gradual choose one step in the right direction master it let it become a habit then make another change. It has to be a sustainable way or else you will just yo-yo or completely burn out. Best of luck on your journey 🙂
