Extremely Low Calories Stalled My Weight Loss

So, I'm doing the Biggest Loser challenge (Get Fit) at the local gym... (Sabotaging Your Diet) well... I was doing great ... and then.. I reverted back to some old habits (eating for comfort, eating cause I was bored, eating "just because") and really after some higher calories days my weight was ok.. it actually even dipped a little.

But then I freaked out and restricted my calories more than normal. I hate to give a number since everyone is different. But I was hoovering around the 1000-1100 range. And those calories were.. well... junk food for the most part.

After 3 days of really restricting my calories... my weight jumped up MORE than last week. So at this point, I'm a pound heavier than my weigh in last week.


I know that I'm dealing with some pesky hormone issues. In fact, I know that may be an attributing factor for the rest of the challenge!

But I also think that trying to eat so few calories has derailed this week. This is my own personal opinion based on my own experience. But I looked back at my log in MFP, and the weeks that I lost the weight I was definitely eating more and eating healthier.

I want to stress it's not just about calories but about what you are eating!

HOPEFULLY this is a lesson learned for me. By trying to drop more weight quickly, I shot myself in the foot so to speak.

So... back to eating healthier choices.. and not trying to restrict my calories to the point that I don't have any energy at all.

I know this week might not be a loss, and mentally I'm trying to not dwell on that. I'm reminding myself that THIS IS A JOURNEY, and I'm learning from this challenge.

I hope in some small way that you are too..
