Those last five pounds are a...
Well, suffice to say, those last five pounds SUCK! I think I've lost and gained the same three pounds since my most recent low a dozen times. It's super frustrating.
Who else has gone through this? Any tips?
I'm running three times a week for about 1/2 an hour and doing yoga at least twice a week. I do this mostly for fitness, but exercise occasionally curbs my appetite. And I've always found that yoga makes me more aware of my body and less likely to junk out.
I've been trying to restrict my calories while still maintaining a decent volume of food (veggies, vegan chili, etc). Sometimes I'll replace a meal or snack with something caffeinated. I eat breakfast, and when I get hungry, instead of picking at junk food, I usually just eat a small, healthy meal. I only eat after 8:30 p.m. when I get home at 8:30 p.m. and haven't had anything else since midafternoon.
At least, that was my habit for about a month.
Then, last weekend, I really fell off the wagon. My bf came back from his last business trip, and we decided to go out and eat all of our favorite foods, and totally overdid it. Ever since he flew back out last Monday, I've been ... so ... hungry!! I don't know if it's the time of the month, or some sort of weeklong blood sugar issue, but I swear, I could eat a (tofu) horse. Maybe twice a day. With peanut butter... mmm.
And NO, I'm not pregnant. (That's the first thing I get asked whenever I say I'm hungry -- why is that? It's rather annoying.)
Also, it's definitely not a "You've gained muscle and lost fat" sort of deal. My "skinny jeans" still result in the most horrific muffin-top you've ever seen (if they button at all).
How do I get my appetite back under control and lose those last five (well, it's more like eight at this point) pounds?
