Did anyone else have trouble levelling out weight loss when starting maintenance?
I'm consuming 2600 calories per day, and although I have the occasional hungry day, many days I have to force myself to eat more to reach this target.
It seems kind of perverse for a person with my history of weight issues to be forcing themselves to eat when my body is saying "I'm full!"
However, if my current trends continue, I'll bottom out of my maintenance range in a week or two.
I know this sounds like a good problem to have, especially when I have entertained the "will dieting wreck my metabolism" worry. And I may look back on this post with envy if and when things get more difficult.
I'm determined not to let free sugars back into my life (apart from a big piece of carrot cake when my birthday swings around
), so i can't just eat a bucket of ice cream, and although I'm exercising a lot in terms of absolute minutes, most of it is only moderate intensity, and much of it i enjoy, plus its good for me for reasons other than weight.
Did anyone else find themselves in the same boat at the start of maintenance?
