Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

Good day so far! Breakfast was a small bowl of oatmeal and a container of activia greek (yum) lunch was a cup of fat free cottage cheese and two cups of frozen fruit thawed out, a banana and a clementine. Good for me! Heres where it turned a bit...when I got home from school I was trying to restrain myself, but I caved. I had two pieces of bread (35 cals each) with some laughing cow cheese which is only 105 calories but I was still sooooo hungry!!!! So I had normal sized oatmeal too. I still had calories left for dinner (1200 a day total) then I went to my voice lesson and had a horrible headache and even an hour after I had my huge "snack" I was starving again! So I had some french bread with a teaspoon or so of "can't believe its not butter light" and I haven't even had dinner yet an now im out of calories. I can go on my bike at home and I should use it more often now since I cant drive but I think whats increasing my appetite so much is my antiseizure medication I started taking. Good news its working so far but I will not gain back anymore of the weight I lost. It is not an option. I lost 21 pounds weighing at 155.4 now im at 161. I refuse to hit 162! I want to weigh 145 pounds and stay there, fit and toned and most importantly HEALTHY. I am just dissapointes because the gym was my "Me" time and now I have to depend on someone else to take me on their time not my own and my own time. I at the mercy of everyone else after driving for nearly a year. I never thought that on my 17th birthday I wouldnt be able to go somewhere by myself. Its very frustrating. But I will persevere, its what I do best because ever since I remember, ive had particularly bad luck with these kinds of things but ive always been able to make it work. Now its just particularly difficult.

You might try eating things with more protein to help keep you full longer. In my experience, bread  or fruit doesn't keep me full for long.

Bel, have you considered that you aren't eating enough and that's why you are starving?   I would be starving too with the lunch you had.  Seriously.  1200 calories/day is pretty low.

You might want to add some whole grains (whole wheat bread, brown rice, whole wheat pasta) to your lunch and as Christy suggested, some protein (cheese, slice turkey) and some veggies....maybe a salad with some olive oil and vinegar dressing.  Instead of French bread, have whole wheat bread with 1T of peanut or almond butter, or an apple with 10 almonds.   

Here's some ideas for healthy 100 calorie snacks:

I also find that if I let myself get to that ravenous stage, it is really hard for me to feel full for the rest of the day. I end up feeling like a bottomless pit. I try to not let myself get that hungry because it never ends well.
