i don't think one could do it indefinitely. i was undereating for about a year before feeling the effects, i had no idea i was undereating until i started trying to figure out why i had no energy to work out.
my kids were my motivation. my fat butt got stuck in the car at my daughter's graduation. the look on her face made me reflect on my lifestyle. that kept my going until i reached my weight loss goal. now my stubbornness keeps me going, lol. i didn't work this hard to throw it all away!
what are your goals? did you plug your numbers into mfp? it should have calculated the correct calorie goal for whatever you're trying to do. you don't want to have too much of a deficit, i always stuck with what mfp told me. if you need extra calories...2 words. peanut butter.
thanks everyone. i think i'll go back to back. i guess i just wanted to confirm that it's no big deal to lose a day, if i go that route. i'm trying to gain weight so i'm kinda paranoid about missing a lift day, i don't want any more weight going to fat than it has to.
as an experiment, i didn't chow down on weekends like i normally do, for 2 consecutive weeks. i ate roughly the same amount of calories each day, plus or minus 100ish. these were my numbers, weighing in at the same time everyday, wearing the same clothes (nothing): 09/08 142 09/09 142 09/10 142.8 09/11 142.4 09/12 143.2…
