I'm definitely not eating enough but it's so very difficult for me to continuously eat more calories while I'm gaining weight and my skin is so horrible. I'm still 100% lfrv and I don't want to stop eating this way but now it's becoming this scary tight rope walk. I definitely don't get enough exercise and this bugs me because when I was eating 80/10/10 before, I felt amazing without the exercise (I was eating more fats). I also don't have very much energy anymore. This is all very frustrating! I'm going to post my calorie totals for this month along with the notes (if there were any) I made for how I felt that day. Any imput would be helpful to my survival on this lifestyle.
Day 1 1855
Day 2 1401
Day 3 1341
Day 4 3319 "Feeling really great despite the kale salad with cashew dressing at raw food place"
Day 5 2600 "Feeling really good so far today but I only seem to want to eat dates. I was hoping I would eat more oranges or grapes (I brought them to where I'm staying out of town) but I just keep buying more dates!"
Day 6 2800
Day 7 1800 "I'm feeling a little scared because I seem to be gaining weight so fast"
Day 8 2660 "I woke up at first feeling how much "fleshier" I felt but then I looked in the mirror and even though I did still feel like maybe there was a little more to me, my shape was beautiful! It made it easy for me to do my morning naked yoga! My body is a temple! I need to drink more water also!"
Day 9 2657 "Happy and proud to be a fruit cake again"
Day 10 2538 " My shape is back!!!! (upon waking) When did I run out of fruit?? (upon breakfasting)"
Day 11 2838 "I seem to be gaining weight again and my energy is down. My eyes and skin look really bright though."
Day 12 2602 "Woke up with a flat stomach and good shape again this morning. I was really worried when I went to sleep because I had eaten SO MUCH yesterday."
Day 13 1743 "Did not wake up today with the same slimness but I had a lot of dried fruit last night and I think that probably has something to do with it. Throughout the day I noticed I was noticeably puffier."
Day 14 1700 " Woke up with a flat stomach again this morning but I can still tell overall that I've gained weight since I started (equally throughout my body). I'm going to get more exercise today and perhaps I'll start to feel better about this!"
Day 15 2350 "Woke up feeling slim again! Still can feel the weight that needs to come off but I don't feel bloated. Also it seems I'm getting my period for the first time in 6 months."
Day 16 2337 "Still worried about the weight, trying not to be. Breaking out a lot now."
Day 17 2550 "It drives me crazy recording these calories."
Day 18 1486 " I got such a bad stomach ache after I ate the salad for lunch. Something seems to have changed with my digestion (this feeling carries on throughout tomorrow too)."
Day 19 2498 "Ate 1498 calories then had a late night fruit binge. So tired, going to bed early."
Day 20 1147 " I feel more spring in my step today! I wasn't hungry though. I've been getting so much painful gas (not today---yet, anyway) and I'd like that to stop! I think oranges for breakfast is the perfect meal- I felt amazingly energetic."
Day 21 2150 " I've been getting the worst gas ever. I just don't know what to do. It makes my stomach enormous and it's painful."
Day 22 1587
Day 23 1986 "I felt pretty good this morning. I really do think eating lots of oranges in the morning makes me feel the best. I felt "full" after only 3 oranges for breakfast today though and I ended up having a binge of canned vegetables later in the day, leaving me feeling terrible. I know the calories still aren't enough, which is probably why I ate the tinned vegetables. I ran out of dates (my shipment is late) and I think I panicked."
Day 24 1600 "I am enormous and my skin is tremendously bad."
Day 25 _________ (day isn't over yet.)
