I'm doing good, but getting shallow

Hi Ladies!  Sarah here.  I've been doing pretty good lately!  I've been keeping myself to 1100 calories or less a day, and I've been exercising almost every single day!  And I'm actually starting to like it!  I'm not hungry or particularly tired any more.  I'm getting used to it.  But this makes me wonder if my metabolism is changing in horrible ways and now if I go out for pizza some night I'll gain 6 pounds.  I had a friend in college who was anorexic and she had to go to the hospital and in order for her to gain weight all she had to eat was 600 calories a day.  That's messed up.  Not that I'm anorexic by any means, but it would be just my luck to get the metabolism of a hardened, life-long anorexic.

I'm down a total of six pounds, four of which I've lost since Feb. 1.  Unfortunately tonite during my workout I got a bout of diarrhea, which normally would not be good news but when you're dieting it's great news!  Just kidding.  Diarrhea is never good news, you know with people in the third world still dying of it and all, but still; I'm looking forward to getting on the scale tomorrow!

(Dieting is making me so shallow.  I hate myself just a little.)


  1. Yep yep yep, 1100 calories is the ticket. Kudos. That's a really tough number to stick to. It's like, 6 bites of oatmeal, a wedge of diet cheese, and 4 grapes.
    I'm still finding the exercise to be the tougher component to implement between that & the 1100 calories. I am starting to enjoy the feeling of being hungry, which I always wished I could do. If my stomach is twisting in hunger, it just means it's shrinking, right? Yeah. I'll go with that.
    P.S. I could probably gain 6 pounds just THINKING about pizza right now.
    Great job on the 6 pounds lost! 24 sticks of butter is a whopping big deal, girlie.
