Yep...just ran the numbers on FitDay today and over the last two months I have gained an average of 0.2 pounds a week. Looking at only the last month it's even worse - 0.3 pounds a week gained. And over just the last two weeks 1 whole pound gained a week (!).
ARGH! I've cut my calories so I should be losing (but am not) and it's not muscle because I can only get to the gym twice a week to do weight training. Plus my jeans aren't any looser. I really don't understand how I can be gaining. I've begun walking the last leg to work, yet still I gain.
The hunger is still there today. I think the Metabolife has stopped working and it's time to try something else. My lunch did nothing to alleviate my hunger. And I am craving bad carbs. My body is screaming for them now. At Starbucks earlier I wanted to give in and get one of their carby snacks, but settled for just an unsweetened iced green tea.
So I'm dealing with two problems. Hunger for any food, good or bad, and craving for bad food in particular.
Was able to walk to work from BART. Took 27 minutes today and FitDay says 81 calories.
Should be able to make it to the gym three times next week, but two of those days are consecutive, which will mean I won't be able to push myself as hard as I'd like on the weight training the second day.
Yesterday's calories were 1764 and today will be higher. Oh well.
