Or do you mean adding 100 calories per day per week. :S

So 1800 per day one week, 1900 the next etc


Yeah, sorry, that's what I meant.

So I'm a week into this cut (started on Tuesday last week) and so far it's been a bit of a shitshow. I haven't particularly struggled to actually stick to the plan because I don't so much mind being hungry, but my body is not enjoying the process in the slightest. My energy levels went to hell almost instantly and although I feel pretty okay right at this moment, and was only periodically dying last week, the weekend was properly fucking miserable. I never made it to the gym at all due to being so shattered and couldn't really face much aside from a couple of trips to the cinema and some very light cycling around to keep my hand in. Indeed it was so bad that I felt exactly the same as when my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was at it's worst (begging the question of whether my CFS issues were actually diet related in the first place or if it just means my body is incredibly sensitive to calorie drops because of the CFS; though that's a separate conversation).

I'll see it through to the end of the week to see what I can lose in that time, and I'll be talking to my PT about it when I see him on Wednesday, but unless something massively changes I won't be keeping it up beyond Thursday because I can't live like that. I mean I'm down in London at the weekend for a massive piss-up so all this would've been temporarily going out the window at that point anyway but that's neither here nor there. I suppose I can just start gradually raising my intake again until all this goes away and then hold at that level but it's disappointing because with the willpower I've been demonstrating at sticking to the plan I think this could've actually worked very well if only my body wasn't such a wanker.

Posting here for accountability.

I bought a sparkly dress in a size 12 for a Christmas party. It barely zipped up over my arse, which obviously I blamed on dodgy sizing before I realised I'd put on a chunk of weight. :S I kept it for motivation (and because I suck at remembering to send things back); tried it on this morning ahead of a party this weekend and it only bloody zips up :D

Still can't wear it mind you - boobs falling out all over the place :facepalm:

My main source of calories up until recently has been alcohol but I've been cutting down slowly since new year. I'm hoping that by actually using MFP I'll realise how much I drink without realising it :S

I made the decision to stop drinking for good a couple of weeks ago, after drinking £200 worth of wine in 1.5 weeks "because of the stress" and realising I was on the verge of falling down a very slippery slope. With alcoholism on both sides of my family it's not a risk I want to take.

These two things might be related (damn alcohol calories :roll:)

As part of my alleged cut I'm trying to break the habit of going to the pub at least once every weekend. I managed one weekend off before a planned trip to London and some unseasonally lovely weather in Glasgow fucked the last two weekends for me. I'm not too worried about my drinking per se, but I realise it's expensive and the calorie intake from it will be screwing up my attempt to sort my weight out so I'm determined to keep at it. This weekend I have nothing pub-based planned and am at my folks house for dinner on Saturday so that should sort me out there.

That's great news Jem, and keep it up Bamba.

I'm also trying to cut down my drinking so am trying to stick to a rule of not having beer in the house. If I want a drink, I have to go out to a pub, and this is reducing my intake Of course, my hands need to hold something when watching telly so I'm now usually clutching a pint of water or coke zero. Only just started doing this so no great changes just yet.

Thanks Kern :)

The not having booze in the house thing was what I was doing at the start of the year and it was working well at the time :)

I'm the other way round from you guys in that I never have booze in the house and always go to pubs to drink. I really like taking my tablet to a pub and just sitting reading comics and whatnot while getting slowly sozzled. That's probably very weird of me, but it's nice to be sort of out-and-about and in places with an atmosphere while still just chilling out on my own. It means the temptation to go to the pub of a weekend is always there though even if I don't have any plans to meet friends or whatever and that's dangerous for losing weight. Not least because one symptom of doing that is the general desire to buy loads of crap food on the way back to my flat which doubles down on the damage.

Nothing weird in that. Sitting reading in a pub is one of life's joys.

I also love going to the pub (albeit to socialise) which is part of the problem. :DD

Is that because it has to stand out so you know where to find it when you have to put it on?

I might be mistaken but I don't think you start a triathlon stark bollock naked.

Technically yes. When I wake up.

But no nakedness at a race.
