I started a thread about a week ago sharing that I was still struggling and hungry all the time. I wasn't losing weight and was honestly ready to give up yet again.

drum roll please....

I took everyone's advice, raised my cals up to around 1600 and dropped weight this week! I'm over the moon happy because I wasn't hungry ALL week. It was so nice. There were even days when I had extra cals to blow on some fun treats (fudgesicles & extra cherries)

I even went camping last weekend and survived. I packed good food and didn't go off track at all. I even left room for a couple roasted marshmallows :) and didn't go overboard.

Thanks to you all!

Really, thanks. I have been dieting off and on so much that it's so nice to actually feel like I'm getting somewhere. I have hope again. (and I'm 3lbs away from the lowest I've been in 6yrs.:carrot:)

Fantastic!
I'm so pleased you met with success! No hunger and weight loss--who woulda thunk? ;)

Love to know it worked while camping. We're going in July and I'm starting to worry.

Congrats!

That's just awesome! Is it not so nice when you have a plan that you can LIVE WITH and not have to life WITHOUT all of the time?

WOOT!! I'm so glad raising the calories a little worked. Sometimes we just have to shake things up a bit, so our bodies get off balance. Then, they right themselves by starting up the weight loss again.

Oh this is wonderful news. I love how you wrote you even had room for some extra treats - and those treats were an innocent little fudgsicle and some cherries. You scared me there for a minute. But apparently there was no need to. You ate sensibly and produced a loss - a win-win situation!

Keep up the great work. Just keep at it. :)

Congrats, losing weight is definitely hard enough without making it impossible by being hungry all the time! That must be such a wonderful feeling, WTG and thanks for the update!
