Need advice on remotivating myself and not just giving up
I found the first month of logging the food to be the most difficult, now it's just so routine I hardly notice. I sat myself a daily range for the calories I would have (in my case 1500-1800) and didn't become overly concerned about the amount of protein, carbs, etc., though I would check from time to time to make sure I wasn't eating too out of whack in any category. Doing this, I've been able to enjoy all my favorite foods, while losing weight at an average of just over 2 pounds a week. As far as getting upset over the weight gain during a week when you exercised hard, remember that muscle weighs more than fat. I too have experienced weeks when the scale didn't move, or even went up, even though my eating was in order and I was increasing my exercise. But, if I just continued on the track I had set, those weeks were typically followed by weeks were I saw weight losses twice the rate I normally had. Hope this helps.
