When you get discouraged, just think back about the positive things that have happened already:

You are doing great, just stay consistent and know that it does take time. With such a small deficit, nothing will happen quickly, but that's what also makes it something that is maintainable long-term...

RE: Ripped The Band-Aid Off (Ready, Set, Go!)
Hi, all! Sorry for the lack of posts/updates. Things have been a little busy around here, but I have at least been trying to keep track of everything on paper.

I haven't been feeling too well this week, and I haven't been able to get in my calories for the past couple of days due to my stomach being majorly upset. There are lots of factors that may be at play here such as adding lots of new fruits and vegetables that I haven't eaten in a while (both raw and cooked), just getting off of my period, and probably not replenishing sodium levels properly after working out (just recently read about that....I had a dry mouth for 2-3 days).

Anyways, it's an annoying setback. I threw up twice on Wednesday, spent Thursday feeling nauseous and barely getting in about 500 calories, and although I still can't eat a lot today, I was finally able to eat some chicken without feeling super nauseous.

I don't know how long this is going to keep up, but I guess I just hope that this lack of eating won't do much damage to any gained muscle and that it won't cause my body to think that it is starving again. (Funny how I used to be excited when I could not eat, and now it worries/stresses me, hah.)
If anyone has any tips/advice on all of this, please let me know! happy
