Right I’ve metioned before ( probably bored you all to tears ) that I’m trying to loose weight and when I started at the begining of March I weighed 215 pounds and yesterday I weighed 210 pounds, its going but not its still not good enough.
So bare in mind that yesterday I weighed 210 pounds, here is what is recorded in my food diary :
7am: Bowl of wholeweat crunches and skimmed milk.
7:15: 4 miles on bike burning off 220 calories, 500ml water
8:00: coffee ( white, no sugar )
11am: Coffee, musili bar – weight watchers.
1pm: tuna salad sandwich on wholegrain bread, no mayo. Yop yoghurt drink, banana.
4pm: 500ml water, coffee, banana
5:00: 4 miles home on the bike, 500 ml water, 240 calories burnt
5:30pm: museli bar
8pm: 2 pieces of steak grilled on the foreman grill, in 2 wholegrain bagels with no butter, a little ketchup. Coffee and a blueberry wholegrain yoghurt.
So I don’t think what I ate yesterday was too bad, its the first red meat I’ve had in months, and I managed 35 minutes of exercise, SO……..whay the hell have I put 2 lbs on this morning?
Is my food consumption excessive? I know I could have done more exercise but I was aching a bit after my big sessions the day before. Thats what March has been like for me my weight has been fluctuating up and down by 2-3 lbs daily, and its confusing me.
I know my body shape is changing, I think I’m looking slimmer, clothes feel better and i’m certainly running faster but the weight thing is doing my head in.
I always thought : eat well and exercise and the weight will fall off, its not. I know I have a thyroid problem and I need to get tested again and I know muscle weighs more, and I know that this is totally illogical.
So….Can someone please explain this to me ?
