I'm at about 1,550 calories, 220 carbs, and 45 grams of protein. I didn't really eat today. I just had 3 cookies and a bag of microwave popcorn and some jerky and an Atkins bar. I only had 1.5 sodas and I had a medium iced matcha with skim milk. I tried eating some refried beans but I couldn't. Something is lowering my appetite.

I understand about the 3500 calories a week and 1 pound thing and etc etc etc and how your body isnt a car and all that. But I've been eating between 1240-1800 calories for almost 2 months and I haven't lost a single pound.

This is just a theory, I have no evidence of this. But I suspect that your body isn't responding normally because it is confused. You take meds differently daily that are supposed to be taken at the same time each day and you change your dosages around. You take melatonin before nighttime which is when your body expects to have melatonin in the system (your body doesn't expect to have that in the system until after dak). And to top it off (and you can't control this) you've been sick and that changes how the body processes meds and also metabolism. I'm on amoxicillin too and I'm retaining water so I'm probably not going to lose anything for a few days either.

Not trying to lecture you, how you take your meds is your business, but if you had a smoother routine for your body to process them it might help your metabolism of calories too. Or not and my theory is just a theory that was wrong .

Medicare now pays for Wegovy if you are at risk for a heart attack or a stroke. I went into immediate care last week with a blood pressure of 144 and I've had to have several phelebomy procedures in the past to lower a blood level that was high enough to give me a heart attack or stroke.

Actually I had to give verbal consent to my doctor I was aware of the high heart attack stroke risk.

Idk. Does that qualify me for Wegovy?

Same **** different week. I'm still eating around 1300 calories daily and am still maintaining around 213 pounds like I have all year. I even had a stomach bug or something earlier this week and was puking and the scale still stayed the same. It dropped to 212 then went up to 213 the next day for no reason. Idk. I feel less hungry. I'm eating less. I'm on different meds. But the scale still just isn't moving.

I hit the 25 lb lost mark yesterday and maintained it today (my weight often varies in about a 3 lb range so consistency is a good sign this is real). I have hit this once before then went back up 6 lbs after a med change. So I'm hoping this time it sticks and I can move on to my next goal of 30 lbs/less than 200 lbs. It's weird that I lost this now as I've eaten more junk than usual this week as well as being over my calories several times because my schedule was off while I was dog-sitting and I ate at unusual times but I'll gladly take it! I've been on this diet for 9 months now.

My vitamin D is pretty low according to a blood test I did today. I looked it up and it can cause you to have a tough time losing weight. Taking vitamin D pills may reverse that and make it easier or cause weight loss.

I just don't know why else I can't lose weight. I mean it makes sense to me at least. Today I've had 1,472 calories. I need to eat something else.

Today I got hungry around 9:30 but I didn't really eat a lot overall. I had a Coke at 2AM A small pack of graham crackers at 5:45. A drink from the coffee shop at 6:30. A plain double cheeseburger and 1.5 chicken tenders from Sonic around 9:30. And 10 Goldfish at 1:20. I have down 1,683 calories. I don't know if I'll eat anything else.

I did 1,300 calories out of my 1,600 calorie goal today. My FitnessPal has me on a goal of 1.5 pounds per week, and I've successfully lost 8 pounds over 5 weeks so it's true to the app. The SlimFast in the morning to replace breakfast really helps as well.

I do about 300 calories of cardio at the gym twice a week and it's really been helping. Working out at home is pretty hard to discipline myself to do. I bought the JustDance game that works on my Playstation and have a camera to track my movements, but I am yet to try it. Tomorrow is supposed to be a rainy day, so it would be a good day to start.

I think the reason I am not losing weight as fast as I would like is because I needed a stricter steadier exercise routine to burn these calories and really work up a sweat. In the past, when I was younger, that's how I shed a lot of the pounds I used to carry.

Today I had a lot of calories in drinks. I had a couple sodas and then a coffee drink. I still stuck to my 1240 calorie goal. I just now had a 270 calorie can of soup and my sodium level is still ok for the day.

After getting over some constipation I am now at 201 lbs. So 28 lbs lost. Next goal is 199. That's only 2 lbs but it's been a long time since I saw 199 and that's a big deal. I actually added 100 calories to my daily limit because I was losing weight and going over frequently the last week or two. When I signed up for the weight loss app it told me 1400 calories but I never hit more than 1200 since I stayed at that. Now I'm at 1300. I will try to stay around 1200 but not stress if I go to 1300.

I randomly was 3 pounds less this morning. I've been pretty careful with what I've eaten today. I had an Uncrustable and I tried some new kind of ramen and I had IHOPs new maple Pepsi. So I'm at 540 calories so far. I need to eat lunch.

I have not checked in in awhile. I have been doing a lot of exercising. Today at the gym:

- treadmill walking with a video of a walk on a Hawaiian island 42 mins
- upright stationary bike, also with a scenic route, with a few short sprints (can sprints be long??) 26 mins
- recumbent elliptical with leg press added, 21 mins
- arm bike. Just 5 mins because it was very hard pushing against resistance

In total, 52 green minutes and 33 blue minutes.

Followed by 15 minutes in the sauna and a short hot shower.

I hope it will help me sleep well tonight.

On Sunday, I am trying a free class at ROWHOUSE. I will post my impressions afterwards.

Did about 1200 calories today. No exercise though, but I really watched the calories.

I am doing good today. I haven't had any soda for once and its making a difference on my stomach. I did have a bottle of Starbucks oatmilk chocolate frappuchino, but that was fine. I had a glass of oatmilk and a small sugar free blue raspberry milk shake. To eat I've just had some Doritos and a pouch of tuna. For dinner I plan on having some chickpea mac and cheese. I ordered groceries today and I got a bunch of beef jerky. I know its a sodium bomb but its good protein and I like the taste. Especially the Jack Links beef terriyaki kind.

Today I had a serving of ranch Takis, a pack of Quest protein peanut butter cups, a pouch of Starkist tuna, and a can of Reeses iced coffee for breakfast. Lunch was a couple sugar free drinks and some beef jerky. I am around 1,413 calories, 99 carbs, and 127 grams of protein. Although my sodium is pretty high. I've also puked 3 times. The first and last time was kind of a lot. So I'm not sure what the scale will say in the morning.

The 4th time was a lot too
