Metabolism only slows slightly unless you do a severe restriction for a very long time. I averaged under 1000 calories a day for over 2 months. My rate of loss was about a half a pound a day all the way through; there was no significant change in my metabolism. That was absolutely not healthy and I am not recommending it, just pointing out that short term stints of severe caloric restriction don't destroy your metabolism. When they put severely obese patients on VLC diets under a doctor's care, they go months without a break and continue to lose at a high rate.
When I was losing at the high rate, I still had some periods where my weight didn't change for a few days and then would plunge. Sooner or later the math caught up with me.

I've now lost 1 stone 10 pounds since May. I did stall for awhile due to stress but now I am back on my diet.

Another day close to 1500. Still a little snack heavy but with low starch and lean meat, my meals are usually pretty low calorie.

Well, I'm out for a while. I have a "bunch" of gallstones and have been referred to a surgeon. I don't know when I will meet the surgeon or when surgery will be scheduled (it's a little tricky because I'm on an MAOI which means specialized anesthesia protocol with anesthesiologists trained in the protocol and I have to go to the big hospital where I get psych care so that they are safe with the MAOI).

So know I'm cheering for you but I'll probably not follow this thread very carefully until I am better. It's really frustrating that my weight loss journey has come to a screeching stop even knowing it's just a pause. I am at 206 lbs and so frustrated at being so close to 204 (weight when I started clozapine) and 199 (under 200 for the first time in a long time). I just want to lose weight and yet right now I have to be eating first. Instead eating is so hard I've nearly fainted from low blood sugar a few times.

Good luck to everyone!

Unhappy Re: Brand new diet thread!

I totally blew my diet tonight,
ate potato chips, almonds, candy....
I hope it is not the zyprexa catching up with me.
Or maybe the sugarless candy, it was so dissatisfying...I wanted to eat the whole bag!!!!!
I think it triggered my cravings to snack.
I never snack like that!
maybe I should just throw the rest away?

jeff will be gone tomorrow, I don't like it when he is away.

I forgot to post my menu for the day. I had a 2000 calorie day. If I was not very full, I would have ate a apple or banana to push the calories up to 2100. This is the minimum calorie intake I want to consume. Also I still weigh 177.

Update: I forgot to include the butter that I used on the slices of banana bread. So this makes the calorie count to a bit over 2100.

I ate healthy yesterday in the sense that I ate mostly fruit, veggies, and lean proteins. But I was still completely out of control. I still felt like I had to keep eating even when I wasnít hungry. I logged my calories as well as my weight watcher points and while my points were in range my calories were well over 2000. So I donít understand how WW will work. I think switching fruits to zero points doesnít make sense bc they are still calorie dense. Iím going to continue to do both for awhile. I just donít know how to stop this insatiable need to eat without stopping depakote. I really donít want to, Iím starting to even out. But should I trade mental health for diabetes?

So frustrated.

Smile Re: Brand new diet thread!

I think one piece of fruit is 1 point in my head. roughly 70 calories.
I don't know how WW works so don't mind me.
(((((HUGS))))
you are making an effort so that is all that matters.
