I tried to go a whole week without counting calories because I thought I had this method under control. I continued with my daily weigh ins and found that by Friday I had put on 5 lbs....almost a pound a day. I fluctuated daily sometimes being down 2 lbs or up 1lb but on Friday my weigh in was at 150 lbs.
This is depressing to me and I should have been going down not up in weight. I caved in and started tracking my calories again to find out that on the days when I was not tracking I was eating well over 2000 calories!!!!
My weight loss goal is to eat abut 1500 to 1700 calories a day so eating more than 2000 was definitely causing me to gain weight instead of losing it. I am really upset at myself because I thought I was handling my weight better plus I felt like I had less of an appetite lately. I guess I will go and get some diet pills after all because I have a reunion coming up in December and I want to start off the new year NOT being fat.
I think I may do a version of the juice diet next week since I have the week off. Instead of doing only juice for the two days, I will alternate between tea and juice and then will also throw in some yogurt for the fiber so that I do not end up getting constipated. Let's see how that works before I try the diet pills.
