At the end of the second month, I’m down 10 pounds. Not bad, I say. Still got a long way to go though.
I think I’ve figured out part of the plateau problem. During that time, I was getting to the point where I was way under my daily requirement of calories to function properly. I was way under the number because I wasn’t eating as much as I should have, and I was burning a lot of calories through exercise. That combination was causing me to horde my reserves.
At least, that’s what I think was happening. So, now, when I think I haven’t eaten as much as I should have on a particular day, I just don’t exercise–I don’t have the extra cals to burn.
I just have to see if this new attitude has any effect, you know? Hopefully I won’t be stuck again anytime soon.
