After losing 8.4 pounds last week, this is somewhat less dramatic - but I'll take it. I really hate how monthly hormones mess with my weight, so if it wasn't getting near that time I suspect it would be higher given that my daily calories averaged just about 1100 each day - that should definitely produce a loss. And it did - I'm 117 kg this morning (257.94 lb) which is a loss of just .6 kg (1.32 lb) bringing my total to 12 kg (28.66 lb). I suppose that would look better on my ticker if I hadn't lost a bunch, gained it back and started over again but it is what it is.
One thing that's been bothering me for some time now is anxiety - just general anxiety, I can't say it's about anything specific. I've been trying some relaxation techniques and meditation, but I also think starting to exercise again will help somewhat. It's been ungodly hot lately - perhaps you've heard about all the bush fires in Australia right now - so I confess I haven't been exercising much in the last couple of weeks, but I'm hoping to get back at it in the coming week. I've always had trouble eating right AND exercising at the same time - I seem to be able to manage one or the other but not both. Let's see how we go next week.
I'm still keeping to 1000-1100 calories on average each day, which at my weight isn't really much, especially if I throw exercise into the mix, but we'll take it day by day and see how we go. I'm that frustrated with my weight loss struggles that I really wanted to make a go of this low calorie plan, but I admit I'm also worried about messing with my already messed up metabolism. I know that dieting causes weight problems more often than it solves them, but I also know I have to get this weight off if I want to avoid diabetes. So ... what to do? For now I'll keep doing what I'm doing.
Hope you all had a great week. :)
