After watching my weight hit - yes, I'm going to say it! - 190 pounds again, I am back on my diet. I'm not thrilled about it, but I decided I just CANNOT allow myself to weigh more than that. Here's my diet strategy:
count every calorie
keep it under 1500 calories a day
3 meals, plus a snack
plan for 1 cheat day, usually Saturday
So far I have lost 2 pounds, and it's only been 2 days. So I know I CAN lose the weight. I just have to stick with it.
But I feel like I am either hungry all the time, or thinking about food and how many calories everything has, or tired. I was happy to see some change when I got on the scale this morning. But it really is hard.
