This is hard

Losing weight at 47 years old is hard. My body is super resistant. The only thing that is working is being consistent. Today I am back below 240 pounds. My body really doesn’t want to be below 240 pounds. 240 must be one of my set points. It must be where my body is most comfortable. It keeps fighting to get back to 240. I’m just not allowing that to happen. I am fighting every day to lose 1 pound. I really haven’t lost much weight in May. This is the same thing that happened last year. My body kept fighting to get back in the 270 pound range. But with consistency it finally moved. I think in the past my body would get to a set point and I would get frustrated and give up and gain all my weight back. I’m not doing that this time. I’m pushing through it no matter how long it takes.

It’s starting to get too hot to go outside for a walk. I keep getting overheated even though I am drinking electrolyte water. I’m going to try going for my walk a little bit later in the day. Maybe it will be a couple degrees cooler.

Yesterday on my walk men kept honking their horn at me and then a bunch of men kept stopping and asking if I wanted a ride. I kinda didn’t feel safe. I walk on a very busy street though, that’s the only reason I felt ok.

I have 2 more of these high calorie salads in my fridge, then I’m switching to a salad that has way lower calories.

What I ate yesterday:

Breakfast: protein shake (250 cal)

Lunch: sparkling water (10 cal), Asian Chopped salad kit (640 cal)

Dinner: sparkling water (10 cal), orange powerade (80 cal), Gardein saus’age Benny breakfast bowl (250 cal)

Snack: multivitamin gummy (20 cal), sparkling water (10 cal), kiwi strawberry vitamin water (50 cal), Amy’s spaghetti (240 cal)

Total calories yesterday: 1560
