Been awhile since I updated. I am officially 20 pounds down since I started this weight loss journey. I don’t have any pics to show, but I can definitely see it in my face and tummy!
I have been doing the same thing as before, just watching calories and trying to do yoga and stretching when I can. Things have been rough around our house. Having a hard time dealing with a recent major shift in my life. So, unfortunately depression has helped me not eat. I’m one who hides and doesn’t want to eat much, instead of the opposite like some people.
It hasn’t been easy to force myself to eat at least 1200 calories a day. Some days I only would eat 600-900 calories. It probably was those days where I could have made my body lose more if I had just stuck with 1200 calories and didn’t lay in bed all day. I think that there is truth to the fact that your body thinks you are starving and holds on to fat if you stay in such a low calorie eating habit.
Also, with all of the stress I’m sure my cortisol levels were through the roof and that by itself will keep you from losing weight. I’m trying to push past it all and take everything day by day and eat 3 small meals a day.
In the beginning of June I will be taking a girls’s trip to the beach and I need to really get going if I want to lose more weight and look semi decent in my summer clothes. We will see how it goes. I’ll post a before and after picture at that time if all goes well!
