I moved into my first apartment in may and kept fairly active until june. Before that I was running about 3 times a week or as much as I could. I cleaned houses. I used to be 185 at 17 but I got down to 150 by eating 1300 calories a day and maybe less..I went down to 125 before I started eating more because I looked anorexic on a 5ft 7.5 ( really 8) large frame. My weight shot up to 137 and I was ok with that but tried to get it down to 130 by eating 1200 calories measured food but it wasnt coming off easy. I ate 800-1000 to get it down to 135 but finally decided 137-138 was ok and excercising 3-5 days a week and eating 1250-1300 was fine. I kept the calorie intake the same but my foods got more processed as I moved and my weight went up to 142-145. Im eating 1270 and im trying to get back to my very active routine but the weight doesnt want to come off if im eating low regardless shouldnt it go down or was I eating so low for so long I crashed my metabolism. I know my protien is low and this week I dug in a creek for 4 hours and ill be doing excercise 50 min each day so I dont know.
