When I count my calories I take the weight off quickly and it stays off as long as I continue to eat right. The only problem is that I get completely obsessed. I am an all or nothing person with no happy medium and after about 6 months of dieting I have to get off it because I seem to develop an eating disorder.
The vicious circle continues when I start eating like a pig and gain some weight back. Then I start over. Eat healthier. Eat smaller portions. Count calories.
So on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 I went back to square one. I weighed myself and measured every inch of my body so I can get an accurate reading of what must be done. It wasn’t pretty.
It’s amazing. I gained 26 pounds since I jumped off the calorie caboose. Being 5’2″ tall my body does not like extra weight and when I carry something… forget it. My back hurts, my knees hurt – you name it.
I’ll start out with 1400 calories per day and gradually decrease as needed. It’s a scientific formula. In the past year I’ve gone from a size 4 to a 10 and everywhere in between. I need to get back on the train for my health.
