I started counting calories around October 21st or so. I seem to do ok doing the week, but fall apart on the weekend. I am 5'1, and current weight is 131. Starting weight was 132.6. GW is around 113 to 117 (I will decide more when I get there).
I am going to try a bit of a revamp this week. I am on 1450 calories a day, and I feel pretty hungry. I am adding more healthy food this week to try a bit more volume for my calories. I bought some containers to do some lunch meal prep bowls. I have been eating Lean Cuisines, and they aren't filling. I seem to be consistently low on protein, so I figure that might be part of my hunger issue. I have also figured out some foods that I seem to have trouble eating in moderation, and I have removed them from the house for now.
On the positive side - I feel pretty determined, and I am still somewhat sticking with it. I guess it's a learning process. My blood pressure was really high, so my provider wants me to lose a few pounds and limit my sodium.
