It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been on these forums. I’m a big calorie counter though but I’ve kind fell off the wagon and lost my focus. I still calorie count but what’s been keeping me from losing weight is my constant cheat days!
Around December 20th is when I finally got into the 250’s, and this is coming from someone who started at 371lbs. So, when I hit the 250s, I thought maybe “heck, I deserve a day to indulge and have my cravings”, well this opened a door that I wish I never opened.
Since that cheat day, I have given myself multiple cheat days since December and I haven’t been able to break the 240s. My lowest is 248, and every time I hit that number, I tell myself “if I cheat this day, I should be fine, I’m at my lowest so why not, I’ll go back to calorie counting the next day”...stupid me lol
So, it’s obvious what I do lol, I indulge way to much, my cheats day are crazy, it’s not any ordinary cheat day, and I’m not sure if it’s because the past nine months of strict calorie counting and not having many cheat days, Its what causes me to make an excuse to cheat this day or that day and just straight up binge!
Now, I can say that I have maintained my weight and I haven’t gained fat because of it, I mean I fluctuate a lot after my cheat days but I usually go back around my lowest weight (251s-253’s) after a couple days going clean. I do still have that fire in me to lose these last 50lbs, I just gotta stop these cheat days
So, what I’ve been doing is, I cheat then I go clean for like 4-5 days then I cheat 2-3 days in a row, repeat! And, I’ve just been going from 248-258 over these past three months!
I’m really disappointed in myself because I know that I could of been in my 230s by now but I didn’t discipline myself and have the willpower to say no to the constant urges to cheat, but I’m sick of bouncing up and down thru 248-258, my goal is to hit 240 by the end of April! I know I can do it, I’ll update you guys again around that time!
With that being I’m not sure if anyone has had a similar situation to mines, but if you did I would really like to hear how you overcame the phase and continued to stay on track!
