So I haven't been too successful with this weight loss thing lately. I lost too much too fast, got down to around 198, and ended up regaining a large portion of it. I got so hungry that I was starving all of the time. After doing some research I think I threw off the leptin levels and other hunger hormones in my body by not allowing my body time to slowly adjust to lower weights. I have been so discouraged that I have been unable to get back on plan. So, in order to get back on track, I am changing my strategy:
No more daily/weekly weigh ins that end up dissappointing me
No more low calorie plans
No more focusing on long term, seemingly unattainable goals that seem ridiculously far away.
I'm going straight into maintenance
I'm just going to eat the amount of calories it will take to maintain my 150 lb goal weight (online calculators say it is about 2200) and I figure I will eventually get there.
Does anyone else do this?
It will take years to actually lose the weight this way but at least it will be sustainable.
I am also just walking 30 minutes a day
Today is day 3 and it is going great!!
