I am about to embark on the BSD and desperately need this to work for me. Will it really work for everyone?
I have struggled with my weight all my life, reaching 130lb through calorie restriction when I got married 6 years ago but yo-yoing to 170lb at different points, a lot on my 5ft1 frame. It’s ridiculous but when I am happy with my weight and feel good in my clothes I just feel so much better in myself. But I haven’t felt that in so long.
I had my daughter 4 months ago and have lost 20lb of my pregnancy weight but am stuck at 161lb despite calorie restriction to 1200-1300 per day. I’m worried my hormones are messed up at the minute and causing my body to hang on to this weight. I’m sleep deprived, I’m stressed, and being miserable in my body is just not what I need on top.
I’m so worried I am going to slip into post-natal depression and really need something to work so I can feel like me again. I’m scared to go to 800cals as it feels so low… but the reviews and stories I’ve read suggest it’s do-able. I’m hoping it’s the jolt my body needs to create some movement.
I will start today and hope this is the answer for me
