I shared last week about the power of eating more, and Iโ€™ll be completely honest, when youโ€™ve spent 20+ years of your life trying to lose more weight, it can be a big mental hurdle to learn to eat more. โฃ

And full transparency, ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ช๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ต, but I wanted to share a real life example of how consistency, patience and not making changes too soon is key AND that you can eat more without instantly gaining 5lbs. โฃ
โฃ
Iโ€™m currently working on finding a balance between maintaining and eating a bit more.โฃ
โฃ
I’ve been slowlyyyyy inching up my macros and finally decided to dive all a couple weeks ago.โฃ
โฃ
I bumped my weekly average calories up by 100 and promised myself I’d trust the process and everything I know about nutrition. โฃ
โฃ
The first thing that happened…. the scale spiked way up. โฃ
โฃ
I panicked but again, reassured myself that I was going to trust the process. โฃ
โฃ
I also made myself a promise that if I was consistent with my higher numbers for two weeks, and the scale was still climbing, I could scale things back down BUT the only way to know for sure if that would be the case, would be to see it through for at least the full two weeks. โฃ
โฃ
So here we are 2 weeks later and the scale is back down. Not what I’m aiming for, so now I’ll likely be adding more food in. โฃ

Oftentimes we automatically think we need to eat more to weigh less and that isnโ€™t always the case. โฃ

P.S. I thought these pictures were another great example of this. The picture on the left I was inconsistently eating 1400 calories Monday through Thursday, the picture on the right is with way more food, maintaining a much lower weight. Do you struggle with weekend nutrition too?!
