Deficit = Plenty... Loss = None
Monday, July 19, 2010
Okay, a bit of a rant here. Over the past few days my weight has been creeping up. I am now almost up to the weight I started with about a fortnight ago. About a pound off it actually. I got myself down to 216, but now I'm up to 220. I realise weight can fluctuate due to water or other factors, but this is getting a bit discouraging now.
On many days I had a 1000-calorie deficit, sometimes much more. A couple of times I let myself down a bit and had only a few hundred for a deficit but overall I should be losing. If I can say one thing first, it's that my diet isn't great. Until late September when I go to university I'm staying back with family. I don't have a lot of money. I'd prefer to buy my own food but I'm not really in a financial position to do that.
They buy junk food galore. Sometimes it's very difficult not to have any junk food. For dinner I usually have some kind of meat and potatoes meal. The meat is usually grilled which is good. I usually have a bit of veg on the side like green beans. I have been trying to exercise and go to the gym, and despite the fact my diet hasn't been great, I should still be losing weight if there's a deficit, right? One possibility is that I'm gaining muscle, but I'll come to a decision about that when I next get the tape measure out.
I hope my efforts start feeling like they're making a difference soon.
