Well, I fell far short of my calories goal yesterday too. Today I may have to lather on a bit more calories. Maybe it shouldn't bother me. I just fear that the more I enter starvation mode, the more one slip will send my weight careening in the opposite direction from my goal. I'm not exactly starving myself. I had about 1050 calories yesterday. Breakfast of egg whites, toast, butter, cheddar, salsa, and coffee with milk. Lunch of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and an apple. Dinner - I was away, out, and decided I wanted sushi, so I just got the tuna maki lunch box. Not sure how many calories that was but it was 9 small maki and it would seem to be around 250-300 calories.
I've grown to really desire sushi because I think it's a healthy meal - fish, rice, seaweed, cucumbers, avocados. But I look at the sushi menu and find very few sushi combos that sound healthy, just because so many have creamy sauces, cream cheese, mayo, or deep fried ingredients. Usually I wind up choosing a rainbow roll, and I do love the miso and onion soups to start, though I realize they may have a lot of sodium, I don't really worry about sodium.
So while I was worrying about whether I was starving myself, I stood on the scale and was 4 pounds less than yesterday! I decided that was unacceptable and continued to futz with the scale until I got it to read 262-262.5. That gives me room to weigh less tomorrow. 7.5-8 pounds down, 12-12.5 pounds to go.
Now to get those measurements before I've lost all the weight and it's too late! :-P
