So my weight loss is slow...dead slow. I don't seem to gain any weight, which is good but I lose only week to week. I feel as though I'm working very hard exercise wise, but am finding controlling my eating and portion sizes quite easy - 3 meals a day of good food, no snacking (this is my down fall and I havn't snacked for 8 weeks). I do eat good fats and I do eat what I like, but it turns out I like lean meat, veggies, rice and fish. My plan allows for the occasional meal out with my amazing partner, who has been and continues to be so incredibly supportive with my weight loss goals. SO this is all fine, I try to go to the gym 4-5 times a week (as of three weeks ago as I didnt want to try and tackle exercise until my eating was sorted) and burn 500-700 cals each session. My asthma doesnt bother me anymore and my resting heartrate is 60-70 which is good. I'm eating between 1200 and 1500 cals a day of decent food.
Is this enough?
Have I missed the point?
Will I tone or just be a thinner person in a flabby, saggy, horrible body that I don't like anyway?
I just feel very negative today and it is so tempting to go back to just starving the weight off. I know it doesnt work, I have been down to thin a couple of times, but I can't maintain a starvation diet when I'm writing my thesis. I also want a lifestyle, not a diet. I can see myself eating like this forever now, that doesn't bore/scare me. It just doent feel like its enough.
