This morning's weight: 188.8
IF is magical. For real.
I was down to 187.8 as of 9/27 which means I had lost roughly 6 pounds in 3 weeks while eating 1600+ calories a day and binging on cashews like they were going out of style. For me, that is amazing as I tend to either gain or maintain eating 1600.
Anyway, I went out of town on 10/2 and ate more freely then I usually do (read: I actually ate some bread, and had an entire hamburger AND fries. That is crazy of me...) . I came home on 10/9 and my weight was back up at 192. Here I am, 1 week later, and I am almost back where I started. So excellent.
I had to remove nuts from my diet (here goes my all-or-nothing nonsense again) because I can't control myself. I am also trying to hit 1200 calories and stay there during the week. Weekends I am not even counting calories, just trying to maintain a level head.
I have to admit I have less energy and am more sleepy this week with the calories so reduced. I really hope that it is temporary. Time will tell!
