Exclamation Gained the weight back, ugh!

Back in March of this year I weighed around 119lbs. This morning I weighed myself and I am 130! Ugh. It's really frustrating. I've noticed that I've lost a lot of muscle, and have gained a lot of fat. Mind you, the past 6 months I tried starving myself and ended up gaining the weight instead. The past week almost every day I have been binging (around 10k calories a day) because I am not sure how much I should be eating, and my mind snaps once I put food in my mouth and I want to eat more. I'm lost, confused, and I would like to switch things around to get back down to my goal. Originally I was at 1,500 calories a day, plus biking/swimming for an hour and on days that I didn't do that I was lifting dumb bells. I got discouraged because I noticed once I got closer to my goal weight it was taking longer to lose it... Irony is I was starving myself because I thought it might help me lose the weight, but with the stress my body went into Starvation Mode and held onto the pounds.

That sounds very frustrating!

I have gained back over fifty pounds at one point myself because of stress and terrible eating habits. I'm not sure what would help for you but personally the way I got over it and started going back to a healthy weight was to forget exercising and focus on eating clean and wholesome without really counting calories. I didn't sit like a lump but I went for walks instead of doing intense work outs and then worked my way back up. Lost twenty pounds doing it.

I hope you can overcome this obstacle, stay focused on your goal!
