I am still here- not losing- but I realize why- I had to get real with myself and start tracking all my food and calories/carbs for a little while. Turns out I wasn't eating as well as I thought- lots of hidden carbs I hadn't counted. sugar-free hardcandy was starting to become a meal- to much cream ect. started dipping into the fruits-so I had to buckle down a bit- now I am truely below 50 carbs and also below 2000 calories. I realize my calories could go lower- but I just hate being so hungery- how to get enough to eat and still keep both carbs and calories down is a bit hard. I had a salad with only 2 oz of turkey today and a boiled egg for lunch- and I am really hungry. So I will double the turkey on tomorrows salad and maybe eat two eggs.
I'm still at 324lbs- not weighing until july 31 at the dr.
I have been tracking both my food my carbs and my calories- it has been very eyeopening. I have been keeping calories between 1600 and 2000, with an 1800 average. carbs below 50 every day, usually no more then 42. Protein over 100, avg- 140grams, and fat- between 100 and 140 avg 120.
I just had to get on the scale- I LOST 7 lbs I weigh 317!!!
