Default calories UP, pounds DOWN!

Well I was in for a big shock when I stepped on the scale this morning. I had lost 4 lbs this week! I believe it has something to do with the increase in my calories. All healthy calories btw. I was eating around 1300 when I started but I calculated what my body actually needed and it was around 1800. I thought it was way too high but I tried it and well I still go results! Now I dont expect 4 lbs off a week from now on but atleast I know it wasnt too much and I can stay at that for awhile. Ah so excited!

Good for you! I'm so glad that has worked for you!

I have a hard time upping the calories. My stomach now knows exactly what 200 calories six times a day feels like.

That's great! 1800 sounds like a much better fit. This way if you hit a plateau when you are close to our goal, you can have somewhere to go if you want to cut calories out again.

Yay! congrats. I have also been thinking about upping my calories a bit. But only upping them by eating fruits and veggies.

Thats awesome!
