I have been more or less sticking to the 800 for over 2 weeks. When I say more or less, last Sunday I had a sandwich when out, brie and rocket salad, and later counted it on MFP and reduced for rest of day so still 800 cals – but carbs higher than should be of course.
I stupidly didn’t weigh at first week but did lose 3.5 pounds last week. Yesterday I was sooo good, and yet I’ve put on a pound. I had homemade veg soup about noon. Then about 2.30 a salad with cottage cheese and a little feta. At night 2 Linda McCartney sausages with cauli mash with some butter, dash cream _ sprinkle parmesan.
Also I don’t feel thinner, and feel rather bloated (not just since I ate the bread). I am drinking at least 6 big glasses of water, often more. One day I ate 2 lots of pulses and that was a mistake.
Just feel I’ve been trying for over 2 weeks and it;s not dropping off like for some of you. I also keep looking forward and wanting to feel an improvement. I feel rather tired not full of energy. I am tempted not to weigh for a week, but still want to feel lighter.
