    100g or less carb fat loss journey for overweight female

    It's time to get healthy and fit. I've not been healthy as I could be since the injury from end of last year injury and since then, I stopped running and focused on strength training. But I injured again while doing the lunges. It has been a month and I am getting better but I'm very cautious about any exercise routine now. With tendency to get hurt easily with exercise, I plan to lose weight thru my diet restriction mostly than exercise now.
    My weight has been fluctuated between 143 to 154 pounds all year long. As of this morning, I weigh 150 after all day high carb & fat(and high sodium) binge. But I will start my low(er) carb diet starting coming Monday(24th September). I will aim the carb intake less than 100g. I know it is not a 'real low carb' but it is way less than what I'm used to eat. My normal daily carb intake is well over 300g and I think I can achieve my goal to lose my body fat by reducing to 100g or less carb. Until Monday, I would eat normally but less junk food. My daily intake have been 2500 calories (except yesterday-it was about 4K). I'm sure the scale wt would go down to 147/148 by Monday(crossing my fingers).

    Until then, I would read more nutrition and go grocery shopping for proteins.

    I have been upping my weight on my ST and I haven't been losing any body fat(or wt). I have been eating about 2500 calories and burning about 500 calories thru ST & walking a day. How long does it take to get rid of water retention from DOM? It has been about 2 weeks that I've lifting wt hard and everyday my body is sore and I am thinking my wt is not going down despite the change I made due to water retention. I can feel I am transforming my body shape(shoulder popping out and bicep getting bigger) even though I don't see it on scale. I know I need to be patient but am I doing too much? I train everyday different body parts(no ST on weekends).

    You should pull thyroid labs before going low carb (TSH, free T3 and free T4) to see if you end up hypo.

    Today's weigh-in after weekends chocolate binge & fatty foods (plus one bottle of beer; normally I don't drink), the scale shows 150.2 pounds and 34.6 BF%. I was worried more of my body fat going up rather than weight. I know why it's up-lots of cheese & butter...

    This month I am planning to get down to 141 lbs. Since I am getting better with my knee injury and the weather is getting nicer, plan to walk more.

    I weigh myself everyday and will average wkly and report.

    Avg. last week(September 24 thru 30): 150.5 (this is up about 3 pounds from previous week)

    Still doing my ST and trying to vary my workout since my knee is better; more cardio perhaps.

    Will see how this week will turn out.

    I fell on my left side in the afternoon yesterday and couldn't move at all. Took a couple of pain medicines and went to bed early. This morning I'm up to 151.8 and I am just depressed. This year has been one injury after another and I just don't know what to do. I just felt good since my knee injury was getting better and looking forward to losing some unwanted body fat and starting 2019 not 'overweight' category once for all. I know I can lose the fat without exercise but I do not know why I'm getting injured all the time. Once I get injured, I get depressed and I eat more and therefore, no motivation to do anything.

    This fat loss challenge(Oct thru Dec '18) is just started and I feel helpless. I know it takes time to heal my body and that means the fat loss will take longer than I'd planned but I will get there 'slow & steady'.
    Just thankful that I didn't get hurt more than I did. One day at a time...

    Have a good day 'cuz I will.

    This morning's weigh-in: 153.2

    My back pain got really worse yesterday and I stayed in couch all day watching Netflix and ate all the food in the house. Also, my DH baked cookies after work to make me feel better. Of course, I devoured cookies as if tomorrow never come. That's how I gained about 4 pounds in one day. At least I slept well.

    I don't think I will reach my 'planned' goal tomorrow. Not happening this week...So sad but my back feels little better and hope I can control eating today. Crossing my fingers to see below 150 tomorrow!

    No wt loss for the fat loss challenge...This morning's weigh-in is 152.8. I've been really inactive due to my back pain and overeating since I was depressed about my injury(and the poor health/fitness).

    I need to work double next week to catch up the no loss for this week. Just wishing my back/health back to normal....

    Today's weight is 150 pounds. Thru weekend, my wt stayed around 153 and I exercised as usual but I ate too much. Looking past personal journal, the only thing contributed to my fat loss was calorie restriction. No macro, no low carb.....just plain 'eat less'. I mean I ate less yesterday but it was around 2000. I was busy all day and didn't have time to think about food. It is only one day my wt showed the direction I wanted. I need to keep doing what works and see what I need to tweak. Curious what the scale would say tomorrow if I keep calorie intake to 2K and keep my normal activities.

    This morning's scale reading-151
    I overate (too much carb) and not enough activity yesterday caused me to gain one pound. I felt so weak so, I ate fast absorbing carb and that was a very bad mistake. After eating sandwich(Pb & jam), I wanted to eat more food, lots of it, and it came with lots of sodium. My body was so swollen this morning, my joints hurt really bad.
    I think my body can handle high carb intake but it has to come from vegetable not from bread, jam & such.
    Even though my journal title is '100g or less carb intake' but I haven't truly stick to the plan. I will limit my carb intake to 100g now on and see some progress. My wt goal is 144 pounds by eom.
    Will note carb and calorie intake now on.

    Today's weigh-in: 148.6

    Calorie intake has been about 2000 a day this week but reduced carb intakes and more walking. Glad the wt is below 150. Didn't reach my goal wt for this week but keep doing what's working. Just don't mess up on weekend. Have a birthday party to go on Sat and need to keep calorie intake to 1500 since I wouldn't have time to exercise.

    This morning I weighed 152.2 lbs. I have been very BAD and it shows but I just can't keep myself away from foods-any sweet & spicy. I just want to go hide somewhere and never come out. Tomorrow I have to report my wt(fat) loss and I'm still thinking about gorging on some pizza & ice cream. My calorie intake is already almost 2K calories (as of 12PM). I plan to make fathead pizza for dinner today. Don't know what I should do....
    I'm very irritated... Hope this doesn't lead me to binge the rest of day.

    This morning's weigh-in is same as yesterday. My hormone is crazy and I've been thinking about foods all the time and binging on all kinds of food. Yesterday I made fathead pizza for the first time and it was very good. If I can only stop eating at one piece of it, I would make it all the time. But I have portion problem with any food so, I wouldn't make it unless I really crave pizza.

    I've gotten a lot of foods from family visit on last Saturday and, I think, that is the problem. I don't get those all the time and I need to eat soon otherwise, they are going bad. So, I am forcing myself to eat just because I didn't want to waste foods. Since my wt has not been going down or my eating behavior is not going any better with my hormonal situation, I decided to throw some away. It's better in trash can than my waist or thigh. But I feel really bad. I should never brought those foods with me from my family visit. I knew myself this would happen. I always have to deal with this problem whenever visit my family or they visit me. They make me eat foods since I lost wt from 210 to current wt from restricting my country traditional foods. The foods I like and my family give to me are my trigger foods. I have them then, I have to eat them at once and they are very salty and spicy. That leads me to binge other foods such as sweets. Then the cycle goes on & on; salty & spicy then sweet then salty & spicy......
    I want them but can't have them. Ahhhh, I wish I can control myself around food.

    Just venting....

    This morning's weigh-in is 152. I've stuck on this number for five days. Thank God, it's not higher but...

    I didn't want to exercise this morning and I've been binging all day long. Being a woman is hard for fat loss... It's about that time(TMI) and I can only think about FOODS. Even though I eat, I just want to eat more. I feel as if I have a bottomless stomach. I don't know what's wrong with me. I brushed my teeth and hope that helps with food craving.

    Decide to come here everyday and report. Maybe that will help my mindset right and focus on what needs to be done in order to lose unwanted body fat.

    One day at a time....

    October 24, 2018( 29 days to Thanksgiving Day)

    Today's weigh-in: 154 pounds, 34.5% BF

    Yes, I gained more weight binging for a week straight. This year has not been a good year for my health. I had an injury by end of last year and it has been ongoing issue that I just want to forget. My hip pain is flaring up again and that causes me to get depressed. I usually overeat when I'm depressed and since I get bored(more free time from not exercising or being active), I eat out of boredom. Just walking or sitting is hard on my hip... I had PT early this year and the pain went away since I didn't exercise at all. Until a week ago, I have been more active and now the pain is getting worse. Since then, I slow down my running or ST and just walking or elliptical. But it seems anything involving hip movements not a good idea... The only solution to not getting fat on is limiting my calorie intake way low. Since I was active, I could eat 2000 calories and stayed 148-150 pounds. I am thinking I should take 1500 calories for a couple weeks with very limited exercise. I will assess how my wt change and my body feels then, will make a proper change.

    With all the positive result from Keto diet, I think Keto should be my best option. I don't know how well I will do but I need to do this.
    Today is 1,800 calories intake. Tomorrow will be 1,500.
