Here is a copy of a post I wrote in a group forum on the 12WBT site.
I'm 75.4kg (165lbs) as of yesterday.
I wanting to lose about 16kg more (goal 130lbs).
Some week's I train daily, full-on training (I AM fit under this fat, I've done heaps of 10km fun-runs, I can run for 60+min full on!) but when I do full-on exercise sessions, I can't do well with my eating because I'm starving.
That's when I pull back (like this week) and start focusing on getting it right with my eating and portion control, because I know that calorie control is more effective for weight-loss, and that is when I start to lose weight! But the problem then is I feel terrible in my body cuz I'm not exercising with intensity, which I love - my body loves it. It makes me feel strong and confident. But then I get into a cycle of over-eating....
It may sound like it's a mind-set thing, but I really do have STRONG appetite that is hard to ignore when I exercise. I didn't overeat yesterday after my 60min hardcore workout, but I was starving all day (even though I ate 1230 calories), and went to bed with my tummy growling with hunger pangs - like it hurt so much I thought about getting a slice of bread just to fill my empty stomach to stop the pain (but I didn't).
The three days before with no work-outs, I ate 1130, 1160, and 1150 calories and felt fine.
I plan out dinners, but I don't plan the other meals, cuz I never know when I'll have leftover dinners, which is what I eat for lunch if it's there. If not, I eat a wrap, chose something from Mish's menu (12wbt). I've been eating ONLY her recipes, just too much sometimes.
Here is where I'm at:
Wish I was doing better, but just being honest.
