I don't believe it!!

I got on the scale and not only have I not lost weight (despite exercising almost every day and making very healthy food choices) I have actually GAINED weight!! And not only weight but inches, so I cannot claim muscle weight as the culprit.
I got so disgusted that i thought to myself, "What is the point then of being good??" and I ate a Symphony bar.
It's obvious that something is wrong. I am not cheating on my food logs. But something is not adding up. I know that I am almost completely sedentary. I have been eating 1200 calories (or 1400 if I do cardio that day)....You are not supposed to eat less than 1200 calories in a day but it honestly seems that my body will not lose weight unless I do something more extreme.
There was a diet floating around the Christian circuit a few years back....and the premise of that diet was to only eat when your body felt physical hunger pains. And at that point you could eat what ever you wanted as long as you stopped once you were no longer hungry. I'm thinking of combining that diet with a healthy eating plan. I will make healthy choices (okay....no more Symphony bars!) but I won't eat until the tummy rumbles.
Years ago I was anorexic. I am very familiar with the sensation of hunger. And it's true that these days, that sensation is rare! Maybe I need to reacquaint myself with it in order to kickstart some weight loss.
So that is my new plan. That and to continue the exercises. Wish me luck!!
