I just did the math and I'm averaging about 2600 calories a day but my BMR is only 1820 and I live a pretty sedentary lifestyle. That's almost 800 calories more than I should be eating a day. HOLY hell. Not healthy, that's like 2 lbs a week gaining. At this rate I would be upwards of 250lbs by Christmas and, if I kept this diet up, my weight gain wouldn't plateu until I reached almost 400 lbs and that's only in two years time. I always wondered how the "morbidly obese" let themselves get to that stage and now I can see how easy it would sneak up on you.
So frankly, since the wedding, I've been super lazy lately and have subsequently been gaining weight. I haven't even been trying to diet, I've been drinking like 2 cokes a day, I haven't been excercising, I've been averaging about 1 bottle of wine to myself a week, lots of cheese, lots of fat, lots of sugar....15 lbs heavier than I was at our wedding 8 weeks ago.
I'm putting my foot down ladies. Even if I ate 1800 calories a day starting tomorrow and did absolutely no excercise I would lose 2 lbs a week starting off. I'm going to do this, for real this time. I'm not letting myself go.
Wish me luck!
I've printed this pic of where I'd be in December if I don't cut back my calories and put it in my food diary:
