    Gosh, I suck at losing weight….I am dieting and staying same, which really means THIS is maintenance and I need to REALLY cut more cals to lose weight. I don’t think I have it in me….I am feeling deprived at maintenance!

    Just a suggestion: Take a look at your macronutrient balance. Are you avoiding simple carbohydrates? Are you getting enough protein? Try losing just 1/2 pound per week; that's only 250 calories per day less than maintenance. Give yourself a reward once a week, if you've met that week's goal. That can help you tough it out, having that to look forward to.

    • October 4: 224
    • October 11: 222.2 (-1.8)
    • October 18: 217.2 (-5.0): Nothing really changed this week. Think the whoosh was some water weight from PMS.

    October Goal: 215
    October Actual: 214.4 (woo hoo - beat my goal!)
    October Loss: 9.6

    • November 1: 210.6 (-3.8) Stressful week. Going through some personal stuff. I'm trying to focus on eating more.
    • November 8: 209.2 (-1.4) Another stressful week. Not sleeping very well and struggling to eat up to my BMR. 
    • November 15: 207.2 (-2) That's a relief! I expected a gain or at least to stall. Feeling stronger this week. Added in a 3rd weight training session to deal with the stress and trying to get to bed earlier.
    • November 22: 206.4 (-.8) Had a lot of social activities last week. Looks like I need to learn to regulate what I'm eating and drinking a bit better!
    • November 29: 202.6 (-3.8) Been sick since last Friday. Haven't been able to workout, but also not much of an appetite. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I miss the gym! 
    November Goal: 207
    November Actual: 202.6

    What I've learned so far:
    - exercise in the evening after eating has less impact than exercise in the morning before eating, regardless of same caloric intake
    - Keeping calories as close to goal as possible has more impact than exercise for me
    - Saving calories (not eating) until evening makes the evening feel more relaxed
    - Busy hands are a good idea, as are habit goals

    MFP start weight Feb20 - 12st 5
    Lowest weight June21- 8st 9
    Challenge start weight - 9st 10

    Disappointed in myself for gaining back a stone recently. Have had a pretty stressful few Months and have let my binge eating take over. Hopefully I can get my eating under control and not gain anymore over the Christmas period. ^_^

    December 6: 9st 10
