When i was dieting before i also used the myfitnesspal app and also went for 1200 calories a day. It was hard sometimes cause i find dinner usually uses up a lot of the calories but like pp said, if you exercise you get to have a little more. The main thing i think helps with keeping calories down is just drinking water, no juice or coffee or tea or coke or something like that. Well i usually allowed myself to have 1 glass of juice in the morning (200 ml) and 1 glass of coke in the evening (also 200ml). And that's how i'm gonna try to do it again. Starting monday! At the moment my main problem is eating snacks after dinner, we'll go to bed to watch a film and be eating crisps or something so if you go to sleep soon after that your metabolism will slow down and it won't digest it properly/quickly. And you're obviously not using the calories for energy.

I finally lost what I gained from our party last weekend. I lost it by yesterday then got some bad news and fell back off the wagon. I am hoping I did not do much damage and I level back out by tomorrow. I wish I was not such an emotional eater...but I just do not know how to stop it. I either shop or eat...and eating was a bit cheaper yesterday.

Tiff

Sorry you had some hard news, sometimes I think you've just got to let yourself eat.

Hi ladies,

Well done on the losses. I agree completely that you can't be angry at yourself when you have a bad day. As long as you get back on the diet the next day it is ok. We aren't robots so will have good and bad days, emotional days, time with friends and family where we need to be normal.

Thanks for confirming that 1200or so calories s ok. I am using myfitness pal to track calories and exercise. With all my details it has given me mor calories but I don't want to eat them so nice to hear other people are eating 1200 and surviving.

I am a bit jealous of those of you who are weighing yourselves since DH took my scales away at my request so I don't obsess and weigh every day. Just hope by Monday this first week has been worth it! Planning on going swimming after work today instead of usual trip to the pub for a glass of wine and a chat.need to remind myself what I am doing this for - hopefully a baby!

Have a good day X

I'm sooo not looking forward to monday... me and hubby are starting our healthy diet :P We've been pretty bad the past couple of months...
It'll be hard to transition I think.... (I'm a comfort eater aswell, I eat when I'm stressed or upset and we've been very stressed the past couple of months!)

I was wondering if you guys do any exercise and if you do what do you do when you're in your 2ww and you might be pregnant?? Cause I had a mc in October I REALLY don't wanna risk anything, so wouldn't want to use my kettlebell or do any intensive exercise just incase I'm pregnant.... Last time I stopped going to streetdance aswell because I didn't wanna risk anything, though that obviously didn't help... but this time I obviously REALLY don't wanna risk anything considering it went wrong last time!

I would personally recommend sticking to what MFP recommends. It is programmed to be the most effective for weight loss. I've found before that if I don't eat enough it doesn't work. It's all about meeting a happy medium. As you lose weight it will adjust your calories accordingly. Mine used to be more than 1200.

The rule is supposed to be if you always do it it's okay, just don't do more than normal.
I can't be off much help on what I do because I don't anticipate to get pregnant anytime soon.
