Not hungry....

Friday, April 23, 2010

I feel like every step forward I make towards progress I take two steps back. How do I reverse this so I can keep moving forward?

I'm finally getting some regularity of strength training outside of Physical Therapy. I'm finally making those healthier food choices (about 85% of the time, on occasion I grab a donut for breakfast). I'm regularly getting in some cardio.


I'm NEVER hungry. I'm still having a hard time meeting my nutritional goals. On my fitness page it's yelling at me in red type that I've "gone over and need to adjust my nutritional goals" Thing is, my minimum calories as it stand right this minute is 1200. And honestly I'm having trouble making that. My body can only handle so much food. Which is part of why I was eating so unhealthy. (If you can only eat roughly one meal a day your going to try to make it count, I made it count in the wrong ways but lessons have been learned since how to eat well.) Now I'm eating better food choices but getting a HUGE decrease in calories intake. I'm able to get down a little more food now than when I first started but it's not enough. I just am at a loss on how to fix this. I WANT to get hungry, I WANT to make calories, I WANT to be normal.

It's just so frustrating. I'll get it figured out. I know I will. I MUST remain positive!

On the positive side.....Today is a good day tummy wise! The feeling of being stabbed over and over again is finally just a dull ache! emoticon Keeping my fingers crossed tomorrow its gone completely!

Hope any one reading this has a great day!
Stay Positive,

    Do you do smoothies? When my mother needed to gain weight and didn't want to eat, I would fix her a smoothie and add a couple tablespoons of canola oil to it. Another thing I did was to use extra oil when cooking her scrambled eggs. I have spent years trying to pare calories from my food and it was a real stretch to try to figure out how to ADD calories to food!!!

    Would grazing work better for you than trying just three meals a day? Maybe lots of smaller snacklike meals would work?

    Good luck.

    Hi there. Stumbled over this blog randomly browsing SP. I am not hungry today either.. Oh well, I will just drink some soy-milk or some OJ and eat a few handfuls of nuts, maybe a banana. Best way I know to boost my calories when I am not peckish at all. HTH.

    Hang in there! emoticon
