I have been getting either headaches or migraines everyday for the last few months. I thought maybe it was my eyes and had my eyes checked and the prescribtion is the same. So I finally went to the dr and I have to go for a ct scan on Tues and I have to take Topomax everyday and something else if I have one come on. It could all be stress. Really it could. I have been trying to lose weight just by eating right and really the only thing I have done is cut out soda. Well my dad wanted me to count my calories because believe it or not he thinks I don't eat enough. Well he could be right ALL of the calories I had Tues including a candy bar were 800. That is awful. I guess I need to eat right, really right. I didn't realize how hard that is for me. I had dealt with anorexia 8 years ago and thought I beat it but I guess I haven't.

Tammy girl you are in my thoughts and prayers!!

Lyndsey, I'm glad you see that you're not eating enough. I'm sure you know that if you want to lose weight, you HAVE to eat a minimum amount of calories. Otherwise your body goes into starvation mode and hangs on to every bite it gets to store. So, even thought it sounds weird, you need ot eat to lose.

Weight Watchers helps me with that. I love the point system. It makes sure I get anough to eat, but not TOO much! I even notice that when I vary my calories, I lose better. If I eat my minimum points for too many weeks in a row, I'll get to a plateau, then if I eat more of my weekly points one day, it tricks my body and I lose more. Weird.

Anyway, I'm babbling now, so I'll get on to the next post! I'm just so excited to be losing a few pounds while still eating what i want!

I'm glad you could see what was happening BEFORE you fell into an old pattern!
