A Bit of Struggle

Wednesday, May 06, 2020

I am finding it hard again to eat enough food and I went up a pound. I plan enough food for my day, and it’s healthy and I enjoy it, but I just can’t finish it. For weeks I plugged in my meals for the day but lately I can’t even think of anything I want. It’s nearly time for lunch and I’m just drawing a blank as to want I want. Nothing, honestly, I want nothing. When it’s time for another meal, I’m still not hungry. I’m not even hungry when I get up in the morning. I won’t throw in the towel, but goodness this is frustrating. I know it’s a weird concept that one can eat healthy and under their calorie range and still gain weight but I am a living example of that. I suspect instead of the 1200 minimal, I average about 900-1000 calories. That’s way better than my average daily calories of around 600 so I will celebrate that! If it had dropped that low again I suspect I would have gained 5 instead of 1. I think what makes this one pound harder is that I plateaued for the three weeks prior to this. Plateau’s are easier when I see NSV’s but not seeing any recent ones of those right now. This too shall pass! Hang in there, Nene!! You can do this!!
Okay, I vented and have it down in writing. Hopefully I’ll look back at this and will be able to say I successfully got thru it. I do realize that my body is happy for all the food choices I am making. #winning #chosethepositiveview

    I understand. I do all of the right things and gain instead of lose. I wish there was a magic formula. Maybe if you add a snack in mid day, even if not really hungry, it would keep your metabolism going? Take care. emoticon

    Oh, sweet friend, it is so hard when we try and try and try and it doesn't seem to be working. You are correct, this will pass, and then there will be something else. Do you have plenty of energy for what you want to do each day? I would say (not as a medical expert, and I'm not one!) then that your body's telling you you're doing it right. One pound is likely some water weight, but good job keeping track of your fluctuations! Do hang in there! emoticon
