Back again
Hello again ladies. I am back after being gone about 18 months... after 2 more rounds of HCG (which I lost weight and it stayed off until another pregnancy which resulted in miscarrage). When I was here last I was(12-2015) #224 and as of yesterday I weigh #230.

It is a long story, me being back here, but a friend of mine is using Dr Garrett Smith. While I was researching him I ran across Matt Stone again. I decided that while I was on vacation at my dad's I would eat what I liked and not "be good". Back home and 8 pounds later (in 7 days) I am a little overwhelmed.

I am amazed at my ability to put on fat. I have put on 30 pounds since Jan with 15 of those being in the last 8 weeks. I have to admit that I am scared to death to continue to gain. I can't fit into my clothes already (since I threw out everything 30 pounds ago...).

I know I will need some serious help with this and was reaching out again. I worked with Anita personally last time (thanks for bearing with me!) and I am hoping to do personalized coaching again soon.

So my questions right now are:
What would my TDEE be? I typed everything in
weight 230
height 64 inches
age 36
activity level - sedentary (I am unsure here. I am always exhausted so dont do formal workouts anymore. If I do outside work I can work hard for a day and then crash for 1-2 days so it almost isn't worth it to me. I am a homeschooling mama to 7 kids and we live on a small farm. I used to be a lot more active outside but I am just to tired to do anything. Tired and snappy. I am so sick of being a tired, grouchy mama...)

so my TDEE would be 2138? I know I am not eating that much but still struggle with actually counting my calories since everything is still homemade! Is the only feasible way to do this is to go to more packaged foods?

Will I ever be able to not count calories? Will my body ever be normal enough to just eat? I know our pioneer ancestors did not count calories, macros or anything else!
