A little bounce in my step.
Firstly, I would like to say that I am officially 10 days binge/purge free. Doesn't seem like a lot, but it certainly feels it!
I've been very strict about eating between 1200-1400 calories a day, up from about 800, and it's felt like a ton of food, and now I'm always hungry. For a while, I felt bloated and gross. I've been exercising when I have time, for about an hour a day in different ways. Yesterday, I did workout videos on youtube, the day before I went on a long bikeride with my man, today I'm walking to school (1.5hrs away).
This morning, I decided to treat myself and look at the scale. 155.3 lbs. I was mortified. I'd been so good for so long, and I hadn't lost any weight, and I'd still seemed to gain it! My stomach felt upset, I felt like crying. I felt like restricting and binging again.
That's when my boyfriend walked in and slapped me on the behind and said "You're looking good lately. have you been losing weight?"
I figured he was just fooling with me, seeing me on the scale, but then I tried shorts on today that I bought when I was a little heavier (and barely fit) and they're super loose on me today!
I feel like dancing a little bit.
How's everyone else fairing? any bum-smacks recently?
