I have to confess. It felt good to return to 1200 calories today. I felt back into control, like I was definitely marching toward my goal instead of coasting. Yesterday I felt bloated and fat and terrible. Today I feel a lot more in control.
Another thing I have noticed, when I am eating 1200 calories I eat a more balanced diet. Those pie graphs on fitday.com show how balanced I eat. I rarely have trouble meeting my sodium needs too. I'm not meeting my calcium needs though, I may have to look into getting calcium supplements.
I really thought it would be difficult to return to this restrictive eating plan, but it wasn't hard at all. So hopefully I'll see some results at the end of the week. I don't anticipate seeing much of a loss tomorrow - my home scale shows a gain. So we'll just have to wait and see.
DAILY AFFIRMATION: I'm sculpting a healthy and beautiful body.
