Weigh-In … Emotional

Today’s Weight:  160.0
Loss/Gain:  – 3.0 lbs
*deep cleansing breath*  My mind knows to be super excited about getting down to 160, and I am very happy with that.  However, my just-entered-TOM emotional self is like, “Oh good…I couldn’t handle the rejection of a gain today.”  
My PMS’y emotions tend to die down the first day or two of my cycle, so I should be good by tomorrow.  Then, I’ll be able to really rejoice that I did good this week, because I was trying.  lol 
Here’s the weekly BodyMedia report: 
Funny, now that I look at this report I see that I did fine.  In fact, one of the things I’m really loving about the Body Media Fit is I’m learning I can eat more than 1200 calories a day to lose weight; I actually need to eat a little more to lose. 
It’s a subject for another day, but suffice it to say I’ve been hearing some success stories lately where the ladies said they suddenly realized they were starving themselves and that’s why they couldn’t lose anymore weight.  Now, I’ve never starved myself, but it’s been interesting to me to see that since I’ve bumped up my calorie minimum to no less than 1400 a day weight is coming off again.  
Eating more to lose weight?  Like I said, a topic for another day, but definitely some truth behind that.  Hopefully, I can get some resources together that I’ve come across and share more with you on that subject next week. 
In the meantime, have a great weekend!  We have a birthday party tomorrow for my son who turned 13 yesterday (yes, all my kids are teens now…) and a high school home football game tonight to go watch.  Fun!

    Hi! New follower! Yep, it's true about eating too little. Sadly, after decades of yo-yo dieting and turning 62 tomorrow, I'm stuck at 1200 calories, but I hope to gradually increase that up to 1300-1400. time will tell. Have a great Sunday!
