brownie Posted September 16, 2012 Share Posted September 16, 2012 I just don't know what's going on and thought someone might have an idea. I don't normally diet...I hate dieting, I'm terrible at it, and as a teen every time I "dieted" I ended up gaining weight due to feeling deprived and indulging. I don't like becoming over-focused on food, but now I just need to lose the 10 pounds I've gained the last 2 years or so because it is making me so uncomfortable and self-conscious. I'm short. I was under 120lbs ever since I got married (Except pregnancies). I was 20lbs heavier in high school. I got back under 120 once last year easily, but it came right back. So for 6 days I have only been eating about 1200 calories. I am hungry much of the time, and yet I've lost only 0.4 pounds!!! Now I know how to do calorie math, but usually the first 2 days of a diet results in 2 pounds of water weight coming off too. Not only did I get none of that, but I really think I should have lost a real 1.5lbs by now too. I just can't keep this up FOREVER. I'm hungry! :) And it is not mentally healthy for me to constantly fret over my food intake for the next year, which is what it's going to take at the rate I'm going!
