Well despite the fact that I ate 5986kj yesterday to feed my extreme hunger I still lost weight. This morning I was 66.4kg. I plan to eat my full, if not over, kilojoules today if required. Weigh in is tomorrow, we'll see what happens. Am happy with this today.

it is all trial and error darl, you do what's good for you. I find with my level of activity if i drop down to 1200 calories my weightloss slows, and i get head spins regularly when i'm doing intense workouts. So from advice of my gym i went back up to 1500 [and i lost 1.5 kilos that week haha], i find anywhere between 1350 and 1450 calories works for me. I'm 175cm tall, so my actual weight doesnt bother me so much, i try to do a fair bit of strength training and I'm in my healthy weight range as well. I know that i can drop a whole clothing size without actually affecting the figures on the scale by much. So i've learnt (personally) not to rely to heavily on them.

I think your activity levels affect how much you need to eat. I think as long as what you are doing works for you you should do it, i mean if you look at sue for example, she has gotten below her goal weight, started eating more calories and lost 1.5 extra kilos. The body is an amazing thing. Like you though, if i'm not exercising i will eat less calories, unless its only my rest day - i mean if i take a whole week off training i'll be more careful.

anyway so much cleaning to do :) take care sam

This makes sense to me. I think I may have a go at calorie cycling as I think I have hit a plateau even though I'm upping my exercise.
Thanks for your info Sam, I found it so so helful. You're doing well, keep it up!

Sunday - 66.8kg
Went silly Saturday (Murray's birthday - good excuse) and ate around 10,000kj, so went up obviously but not by as much as I thought I would. Went out to lunch & dinner, birthday cake, etc.
Monday - 67.2kg
Sunday was just as bad. I guess I was having a lazy day and I ate whatever I wanted, bacon & egg breakfast, etc. I was probably thinking that I ate so much Sat & didn't go over the 66s so thought it wasn't so bad.
The good news: I was still in the 66s for weigh in Sunday like I wanted. I learnt my lesson yesterday & it has given me motivation to watch myself again. I am still happy with how much I have lost so far. I will be good today & will fix the damage in a few days. My metabolism should be going well & if I cut back today will hopefully do well tomorrow. Everyone has to have a couple of free days every now & then. I understand why & can change it now.
Will see what happens tomorrow. Trying to remain positive. Is not so bad. :)

I ate around 7500kj yesterday & went back down to 66.8kg. I could have done better with my eating, I was right on track & had my full daily kj, then my fiancee wanted me to make french crepes with jam & ice cream & I could not refuse to try some myself so went a bit over. My plan is to get back to the amount I was eating last week & see if i can get back on track & start losing some more. Happy with the weight lost though.
