Staying off the wagon... and losing tons of weight?
I haven't actually posted anything in a long time. Life has been crazy lately... been working full time hours, and it's finals in school, and of course it's the holiday season, so I haven't really had time to breathe. I fell off the wagon weeks ago, and just told myself I would wait until finals were over to get myself back in gear. It all started when I got sick... but then I just never got back to it. However... I have been losing weight. How is this? I have eaten without reserve (loading up on carbs... like really bad... like bread at every meal and Corn Pops as a snack every night) and I haven't been to the gym in at least 2 weeks. So how am I losing? I weighed myself today and I am down to 153- and that's with clothes on. It's not like I am not absolutely thrilled... but I can't understand why. The only thing thing I can think of is that me working more hours (I stand, walk and lift a lot at my job) has kinda taken the place of the gym. So I am left with a question- should I be eating more calories? I feel that I have been more successful during this stretch than when I was eating much fewer calories (between 1200 and 1500 a day). Any insight?
