Congrats! That's awesome.

I'm eating real food again, yaaaay! Like actually being hungry and eating FOOD.

Somehow managed to shovel the right number of calories into my mouth these past few days anyway. Not quality calories. A lot of them were from ice cream...

Off topic, but that's one thing I really miss about being baby free - I'm okay stranding myself in the wilderness, I'm not okay stranding myself and Falon.
Just wanted to say that if you would like a hiking buddy, I will happily volunteer - as will Middie if it's somewhere on-leash dogs are appreciated.

I need to stop going back to bed after the gym. I always wake up feeling like I was hit by a bus even if my post workout food was bang on. Once i have proper breakfast its fine but sometimes even getting up to go make that is just a battle.

It doesn't happen if I take pug for a walk or stay awake. So I guess I need to stay awake.

Feeling discouraged. End of my second week working out 4-5 times a week. Cardio, weigh s, strength training etc. I gained weight. Boyfriend says not to worry, that I'm probably gaining muscle, etc. Still hard to feel good about what I'm doing when my IBS has gotten worse, and the scale tells me so far its not working. Really didn't want to start tracking my food intake because then I get obsessed with it, crash and burnout.

Talked with someone at the gym who started the same day I did who has already lost 15 pounds

Going to Zumba tonight, Zumba and yoga tomorrow. Not giving up.

I tracked my food for about a year and lost 80 lbs. Then I spent the past 6 months insisting that I didn't want to track my food and trying everything else. And I lost exactly zero pounds... Since I started tracking calories again, I lost 4 lbs in the first two weeks. I know it doesn't work for everyone, but I'm really getting in the habit of going to my computer after every meal and... sort of obsessing. I do have to fight burning out, though. But I just think about what I want out of this - my specific goals - and that helps.

I hear Zumba is a blast. Good luck!

Can I ask more about your diet in general, SoCrafty? I had IBS for years. Since I was 13 I struggled with it. I'm 29, so for over half my life. Have you tried elimination diets, and what of?


I tracked food years ago when I was first losing weight and it worked - and it taught me how to eat. 1300-1500 calories a day, day after day after day.
Unfortunately this was no longer enough when I became a runner, and later when I started cycling and lifting weights. But I still ate that way. 1300-1500 calories, day after day after day.
I'm tracking again now trying to re-learn how to eat at a higher calorie level. And it's really not fun. I'm fighting a lot of stuff. Fighting against not really being that hungry. Fighting against "That's SO MUCH FOOD" and "Yikes, that's SO MANY CALORIES!" It's actually kind of terrifying. There's some EDNOS stuff floating around in there too.
I don't like it. My ultimate goal is to be able to basically reset where my default caloric intake is - in other words, instead of routinely eating the 1300-1500 without thinking, eat 1700-2000 every day without thinking - and stop tracking again. But right now I'm back to being semi-obsessive about tracking. And I do hate it. But it's a necessary evil in order to fuel my workouts properly.

You might benefit from a similar paradigm shift. Instead of tracking to ensure you lose weight, track to fuel your workouts?

I'm not saying to definitely go to tracking right now, but something to think about. Even if you approach it differently it's still... well, yeah, it is what it is.

That would be awesome! How does Middie handle off leash dogs? Around here it's about 50/50 on leash and off leash (no matter what is posted, it's kind of obnoxious). Do you work on Saturdays?

Sure. I have cut out altogether: Chips, pretzels, crackers, tortilla chips, pop corn, cookies, baked goods, muffins, candy. I do not eat fast food (restaurants, yes but places like McDonald's no). I cut back on bread (I don't ever get through one loaf a bread. I've gone months without buying one), cut back on bagels. I learned that I have a hard time with dairy so I don't have milk at all, and I take a Lactaid if I have more than a teaspoon of dairy (any kind). I tried to incorporate more yogurt, fruit and veggies.

A standard day for me would be a frozen breakfast burrito (about 240 cal) (just learned that you can microwave eggs, so ill be making my own starting Monday), 2 cups of coffee (slowly trying to break myself of it), I started eating an apple around 10:30, and for lunch it just depends. A lean cuisine, soup, a baked potato, or something to that effect, dinner has been like one portion of a Voila meal, or a piece of grilled chicken and a veggie, or steak and a veggie, maybe pasta and sauce. Trying to slowly drink more water - not my favorite. I have some sweet tea left and half a liter of soda left. Once that's gone, not buying any more.

I like broccoli and cabbage etc, but I was told I can't really eat that with IBS. I can't even have oil anymore. Even the smart balance butter bothers me. Been trying to eat more salad. weekends are still my cheat nights, but have been making healthier choices when I go out with my boyfriend. Actually ordered a salad for dinner last week.

Including my dinner tonight, my calorie intake today is only 1388.
