I'm having a tough time with my eating. I still track everything that goes in my mouth. (Keep your minds out of the gutter! Besides, there's not many calories in that and it's mostly protein.)
What I've noticed lately, within the last month, is that I think about food all the time. I fight with myself all day long about trying not to think about food. I think I need more calories than the 1200 I'm getting. I'm burning about 4100 calories a day so how can I not be losing weight?
I haven't lost any weight since Dec. 31st and had actually gained a little. I'm back down to 202, but sheesh, it's been a long road.
I shouldn't complain about being at a stall since the longest one I've ever had was 3 weeks (which is how long it's been now).
At 15 months out, I've lost 183 pounds. Even though I haven't lost any weight, I found out I could wear a size 14 in jeans. I had gotten mud on my last pair of clean ones and the only pair left was the 14's so for grunts and grins I tried them on thinking they wouldn't even zip, but they did! I've never been a size 14. I skipped right over them and went to an 18 just out of high school.
I'm not really liking the extra skin I have. Just when I make peace with one part (belly), I find another that looks hideous (thighs). There is no way that plastic surgery is in my future as I could never afford to take months off work. My job is physical and I would need much time to recuperate. Save your breath if you are going to tell me that you have some fabulous exercise that's going to make my extra skin snap back. There is no way that any exercise is going to help this flapage.
I will have to learn to love my new body as it's taken me places and will continue to do so (hopefully). Extra skin is better than fat any day.
~Update~ After all of that whining, I got on the scale this morning and lo and behold, I had lost 2 pounds. I now weigh 200 pounds exactly. I'm not sure it will be that tomorrow, but I'm taking it for today.
