Two more pounds gone!
That makes five pounds just since Friday! I keep saying to myself that NO FOOD tastes as good as this empowerment feels! :)
I've been sticking really stringently to my eating plan, but I feel like I've been eating a lot. Granted, it's modified for my band (for instance, "liberal amounts" of protein and veggies is no more than 2 or 2 1/2 ounces of meat and 1/2 cup of veggies), but I also realize that one of the things that probably affects me as far as plateaus is not getting ENOUGH food.
There are some who feel if you simply eat X number of calories and expend X+ calories (eat less than you expend), that you will just lose. Period. However, I think all those diet books out there that claim if you eat less than 1,000 calories, it shuts down your metabolism, are right -- at least for me.
I knew a LBTer who swore that she ate 800 calories all the time and lost consistently. Even IF that was true, I don't think it is true for all people.
I'm certainly not counting calories, so I have no idea what I'm getting. But I AM drinking my water and green tea, and I am eating three meals plus one snack (typically Kefir, so it's not really a meal).
I guess we'll see where this goes. :)
Oh, and take that, Mom. Nyeah.
