My Body...


I've done 800 calories a day for 3 days now.... and... I've lost 10 MotherFrickin'Pounds!!!!! ::Does Happy Dance:: It's so, SO worth it. Next week I pop up to 1000 calories. I'm tempted to stay at 800 but everyone around me is freaking out so... yeah... I'll be smart.

In other news, Shecky's baseball team won a game last night!! W00T!!! It's the very first time they've won this season. It was so freakin CUTE watching them flip out in the dug out when they realized they were gonna win! (I know, I KNOW. It was unsportsman like but WOW... these boys EARNED it. ) They've come so very far from the beginning of the season. I'm proud of all of them!

Honey, honey, honey! OK. Here comes the tough love. Don't read on if you don't want it.;)

The people around you are right to freak out. You've put your body into starvation mode. What happens is your body's metabolism then slows way, way down. So when you get to the weight you want and pump your calories back up to the normal 1800-2000, you will gain what you've lost plus some with less food than you've eaten before.

Please, please, PLEASE don't wreck your metabolism! It takes so much longer to get it back on track, than it does to lose the weight the right way the first time.

The smallest amount any woman should eat is 1200. And I would stick with the weight watchers points they've alloted you. They have very carefully figured out what's healthy and appropriate for the weight you are at. And if you're not happy with the program any more. Perhaps you could see a nutritionist?

I know it's frustrating to lose weight more slowly. And it would be so great to lose it quickly. But really, in the long would be so much happier with yourself to not have to fight a screwed up metabolism the rest of your life.
