Hey, Y'all!! I walked for 30 minutes yesterday!! In the rain!!
Minimum heart rate -> 98
Average heart rate -> 137
Maximum heart rate -> 168
Calories burned -> 335
So how's that??
And I'm up 2.5 pounds this morning from my excited 190.5 (the past few days) to my depressing 193 (for the last 2+ months) again. WHY?
I tell you this is really getting to me.
I need some help here. My average calorie intake from week before last was 1340. And I've been keeping it around there for the past few months while fluctuating between 191.5 and 193. Last week it was 1574 where I lost a half a pound. Is my body telling me that it will only lose weight in the 1500's? That just doesn't make any sense to me. I searched and searched several sights and they all said approximately the same. That I should consume between 1200 and 1550 calories to lose weight and I've tried to keep it closer to the 1200 all this time. When I was counting WW points along with calories I was keeping my points within the range they had set and sometimes going over by a point or 3 only. Again within their range because I wasn't eating all of my flex points, just a few. I just don't understand. Do you?
Could it be the stress? The stress over watching my food intake and stressing over what I can and can not eat the rest of the day to stay on track? When I took my little mini-vacation from this "diet" I still counted my calories but I didn't do it until at the end of the day after I had been bad or good and didn't know it. I just enjoyed myself and most of the time I did really well but some days I didn't. I know stress can affect weight loss or gain, so maybe that's it. By now I know what I should or shouldn't eat and if I ate something I shouldn't I was careful not to over do it.
Happy Sunday to all.
