calannapy's Journal, 25 April 2012

Struggling. Eating 1300 calories isn't working for me. I had those tell tale signs of irritability and lack of energy and I even got sick. This happens everytime I go below 1600 calories. Feeling a little frustrated. Guess the answer is to keep the calories up to at least 1600 and really up the activity level. I have so little that I want to lose still. I just want it off. Is is unrealistic to get to my goal weight? My husband says to stop trying to lose, just maintain and workout more. Maybe he's right. I just had that magic number set in my mind. But maybe if my body is fighting me that much, I should let it go.

Why don't you focus on fat loss and changing your bodies composition instead of just the scale. You are so close anyway. Losing weight makes you a smaller version of what you are now. Losing fat and building muscle with exercise can change what your body looks like. So you could be 155 and a little jiggly or you may be 163 and toned and firm and fit in to a smaller size than if you were 155. I love Oxygen magazine and Muscle Fitness Hers. They off great recipes and tips for fat loss and exercise. You may not want to look like the cover but the articles can be educational. You might also try cycling your calories (1300, 1500, 1400, 1600, etc. ) and see if that helps.

Thanks. I agree. I would rather weight more and look better instead of weigh less and look unfit. I'm gonna hide my scale for a while. LOL!

Thanks for leaving such positive words on my journal. I see you've had/have your own share of challenges. Key point is not to give up, and you don't! I think you are awesome too! Keep truckin'!
