Well, it’s already June 20th and I’m sorry to have dropped off the face of the planet. I think I was a little ashamed and also frustrated. The 28 day Fast Metabolism Diet did not work for me as expected. Why? I’m not quite sure but I think it was the portions that I was eating. I was eating too much maybe but I wasn’t dropping any weight.
I’m ashamed because I gave up after a couple weeks and tried counting calories – 1200 calories a day, not net. After about six days of this I binged…just like how it used to be in high-school. Starve and restrict and then binge. I hated it and it was horrible. Am I just eating to eat? Am I stressed cause of work and babysitting and trying to exercise? Why is this so hard for me? I am saying goodbye to this girl. The girl that assumes one bad food means the end all be all for that day. Just because I over eat a little DOES NOT give me the right to keep on gorging until my belly aches. Goodbye binging self.
So I’m going back to portions. Portion control starting tomorrow. I will record everything that I eat, and the exercise I do, for you all to see.
1 Dairy (or alternative)
(totaling about 1400 calories if each portion is 100 calories, with veggies as unlimited!!)
That is what my nutritionist recommended to me my senior year of high school. And sure enough, I lost 15 pounds. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner. Then she even allowed me to eat a NuGo bar SLOWLY after dinner if I was so so hungry.
I know that I can do this. I HAVE TO do this. I will do this. I leave to go back to school On August 20th, which means that I have exactly 2 months – 60 days (not including the day I leave to) to lose 15 pounds. I can do this. And all of y’all will be with me every step of the way as I share with you my exercise, eating, and struggles.
