Had an exam morning and wooo i'm feeling positive about it. i was crapping myself this morning and was so stressed and couldn't eat (As compared to when i was crapping myself yesterday and couldn't think and was comfort eating), but i'm ok ish now. i'm near my start weight but that includes period bloating and what not but i'm not that worried as i can just hoop more and move more once exams are over.
I got Wii Fit yesterday & was devastated to be calculated as about 3 pounds heavier than I am on my home scales & overweight with a BMI of 25.03. I'm not sure which is right, but I've decided to use my home scales for weigh-ins and the Wii Fit for excercise in combination with cycling and using the excercise bike.
Am gradually losing weight which is much better than when I used to lose loads very quickly & end up putting it back on at the same rate. Have cut down portion sizes & have substituted naughty snacks for low cal ones. Have also ordered 'Huger Shots' with my food shopping which are yogurt drinks to consume inbetween meals to stop you snacking unnecessarily.
I know the general consensus is 1,200 cals a day for losing weight, but a friend who has lost a lot of weight over a year recommended 1,000 cals. Is this safe?
I would say No no no no no no to 1000kcal (unless your doing this under professional supervision), even 1200kcal is a bit iffy depending on how much you weight.
This is gonna sound bad, but I find the only way I can lose weight is eating between 1000-1200 cals a day. otherwise I just stay the same. But I feel fine, it doesnt affect my energy levels or anything, and I eat lots of fruit and veg...so it cant be that bad?
I'm not sure about the toning, but psychologically it makes you feel better, destresses you and you have more energy etc.
