Frustrated!


In the past the only way I have been successful at losing weight was by not eating less than 1500 calories, most day less than 1200 (which I know is not enough). I’ve been trying to fix that this time around, but the results have been well basically nothing.

What I’ve been doing:

So my goal the last few weeks have been to eat close to 1800 calories each day and have an active calorie burn of at least 600 calories. But the results have been me basically losing and gaining the same 2 lbs over and over.

 

What am I going to do next:

I have to change it up, cause this hasn’t been working. So I am going to increase my active calorie burn to at least 800 a day and decrease my intake to 1600. That way I’m burning half the calories I’m eating.

I know this is not the best approach and will be less maintainable for me in the long run, but if I don’t start seeing some progress soon. I’m gonna wanna just give up altogether.

 

Sorry for the rant, just had to verbalize my frustrations!!
