OK SOOO .. news flash! My weight is yoyoβing again. I am FED UP. I am demotivated and I am upset every week, exactly the same as how I felt in the run up to the wedding when I platteud for months on end. SOOOOOO I am nipping it in the bud early & I have made the choice to go back to calorie counting and using MFP to log everything, the last time I did this the weight started coming off again so Iβm praying the same for this time.
I figured that on average on scottish slimmers I am consuming around 1200 calories a day. My issue before was that my body was storing the wrong fats as I wasnβt eating enough throughout the day. So, I have spoken to two personal trainers and they have helped me work out what my calories should be each day, based on my goals, weight and activity level that I should aim to average about 1800cals a day .. however, this is terrifying so I am gradually building it up and today I have had 1500 and feel pretty good but the guilt has set in and Iβm not having anymore for the day. I am also making a conscious effort to increase protein and make healthier snacks throughout the day, little and often opposed to picking on biscuits or having smaller meals then picking on anything thatβs in the kitchen.
I have an I watch and my daily calorie burn is always over 2000 so I can only assume also from past experiences that 1200 cals a day is just too little for me at my journey point right now. Scottish slimmers is an amazing plan that worked so so well for me until I reached a certain point, I was stuck at this point for so long before and too scared to make a move, Iβm glad I did and I got to my goal for my wedding now Iβm hoping to get this excess 6lb off ASAP. Some people will think Iβm a drama queen for feeling this way over +6lb but itβs about how I feel, I feel bloated, sluggish, demotivated and I have too many pinchy bits. .
Meal prep done, two gym classes done and Lucy loo is feeling good - I have so many social events on between now and new year and on the 5th of January I am a bridesmaid so Iβm trying my hardest to get back to a comfortable weight before then whilst still enjoying all the social aspectsπ―ββοΈ#transformationtuesday
