Stay - Rihanna
There has never been a song that I have such a strong desire to sing ever in my entire life as this song.
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving/’Cause when you never see the light it’s hard to know which one of is caving
So, I used to use MyFitnessPal, and I used it when I lost most of my weight. I had it set to 1200 net calories per day.
At the time, that what I ate. I ate even less. I ate, a 180 calorie KIND bar for breakfast, about 300 calories for lunch in the form of half a turkey sandwich, an apple, and a V8, and whatever my mom made for dinner. Plus I had softball practice 5 days a week. I lost 30 pounds in 3 months or so.
And I’m trying to lose again, but I can’t really count calories anymore because it makes me obsess. However, I have started using MFP again, and counting. And again, it has me at a net of 1200 calories a day. However, I find that eating a normal, and healthy amount of food puts me over that number. Today, I had greek yogurt and granola, soup and salad, and a small piece of meatloaf with mashed potatoes. Had I not done 50 minutes of intense cardio, I would have gone over the net of 1200. There is no way that I can do that amount of cardio every day.
Numbers are very difficult for me. But I don’t know what else to do anymore. And I’m at a better place than I was, I know that 300 isn’t a maximum for a meal. I don’t strive to starve myself, I don’t feel guilty for eating an apple. But after 2 days of counting again, I’m already obsessing and restricting again. I can’t have a cookie. Because that calorie goal is so low.
My problem is this. My Fitness Pal does not know my body composition. It can’t accurately tell me how much I burned, or what my BMR is, simply on the basis of “I’m 18, I weigh 175 pounds, and I’m lightly active”
But I want to lose weight like I used to. I just don’t know what to do.
