I know I sound like a broken record, but I’m just so frustrated. I eat roughly 1400-1800 calories a day, work out a ton and cannot lose weight for the life of me. I don’t know what to do. Cutting down my daily calories even more just doesn’t work. I end up starving and binging. It happened tonight. After eating maybe 650 calories at work (both breakfast and lunch) during the day, I was starving when I got home and made some ice cream/peanut butter/pudding creation that was not necessary! I mean, I could of had one of the three and that would have been fine, but do I really need to mix ice cream, pb and pudding? I think not. After that, we went to have sushi for dinner. I didn’t count how many pieces I had, but it was a lot.
I’m just frustrated. I don’t know how to fix this. Jason always tells me that I don’t need to lose weight and that’s why I have so much trouble with it but really, I do. I mean, I’m still technically in the “normal” category in regards to BMI but I’m at the very high end of the spectrum. I’d feel much happier in my own skin in the middle.
I just don’t know what to do. I’ve cut down my drinking a lot, I’ve amped up my running to around 15 miles a week (from like 5), I’ve been trying to cook more and measure things and nothing works! The only time in my life that I have been successful with weight loss was when I cut out most carbs. I don’t want to have to do that again because it lead to some disordered behavior, but I don’t know how else to go about this.
