I feel rude saying this, But I honestly don’t know why people message weight loss blogs and ask them how many calories are in their dinner and they give us a list of food they ate. Just because we’re losing weight doesn’t mean we know the calorie content of all foods. Secondly, If we don’t even count calories for our OWN food what makes you think we’re going to count yours? Finally, Google would have better knowledge of the calories in your food than we would. We don’t know how many ounces of chicken you ate or what you cooked it with. You say you ate “some” strawberries, Right? Okay, “Some” could mean any where from 2 to the entire carton. You ate a turkey sandwich…. Half or full? What where the toppings? What kind of bread? I mean really, These details make a huge difference and we’d love to help you, But you’re doing to have to be a little more specific than that. You really should just Google it.
Well, I'm feeling a bit better about my situation.
A few weeks ago I went on this rant about how bad I’ve been doing on my weight loss. However, While I definitely haven’t done well in the least, I really don’t think I was doing as bad as I thought. The lowest I’ve seen on the scale is 217 and when I weighed in a few weeks ago my scale said 230. I was like did I REALLY gain back 13 pounds? No, I did not. First of all, I probably never actually weighed 217 to begin with. I weighed 217 after being sick for about 3 weeks and I was hardly eating on top of vomiting all day (not on purpose, Of course). As soon as I started eating normally again my weight went back up. I was probably more around 220 instead of 217. I was also on my period at the time as well. You ALWAYS weigh more on your period. Then, I was ignorantly weighing myself after I had ate/drank and I hadn’t used the bathroom yet either. That also adds a couple of pounds. Finally, Despite all of that, I’m sure my body was holding onto water weight as well since I hadn’t been drinking any water and I was eating like crap for almost 2 months. All these things put together can definitely make a 13 pound difference on the scale. I just weighed myself and the scale said 225. That being 5 pounds less than 230 and assuming that I was never really 217 to begin with makes that a 5 pound “weight gain” instead of 13 which is a big difference. I know that some of that 5 pounds HAS to be water weight. So, While I might have “gained” a little “weight”- It’s not like I gained 13 pounds of fat like I was making it out to be. This makes me feel a lot better. I am still very disappointed that I haven’t made any progress in 2 and a half months because I probably could have lost a good 20-30 pounds, But at least I didn’t undo what I have already done. Right now I’m about to have some hummus n’ things and start with level 1 of the 30DS. I have already completed it once before, But I need to start somewhere again. I might have to repeat some things I’ve already graduated past, But it can only go up from here.
