RE: Journey to Hope
So I've been doing this eat more thing for a little over a week now. It feel like longer! In fact, I thought it was longer till I looked at my MFP app and saw I've only been doing this since last TUESDAY!!!! LOL!

In the past week and 2 days I've increased from 1000, cals, to 1200 to 1500 to 1800 . I was planning to increase more slowly, but I found I was getting hungrier, and the increases happened kind of naturally.

I'm pleased that so far, the only gain I've seen is the normal 2 lb fluctuation I used to see weekly when I was eating 800-1000 cals.

In fact, TOM is very soon, and I'm surprised I'm not up even more. I have been drinking a lot more water...still not enough for my weight, but more than I was.

Mentally I feel like I'm doing better. There's still some fear, but not as much. As long as I don't see pictures of myself I'm OK. I think I have the opposite of most people when it comes to body image. I mean, I know i'm fat, but when I see myself in the mirror, I see a certain degree of it....but when I see myself in pictures, I'm like "Whoa...when did I become the pillsbury dough girl!?!" It's depressing, which is why I've tried to stay out of pics as much as possible for most of my life. I know this isn't good bc when my kids are older, they're gonna wonder why I wasn't in pics with them.

So, my HOPE, is to one day, ENJOY being in pictures happy
