Why am I gaining?
In the past year and a half or so I have lost 50 pounds. I exercised, ate much less, and ate healthy. I had been over weight my entire life, and finally made a change. I did not vary from my 118 pound, 5'5 frame all during the year (August-April) But then it seemed like all of a sudden I gained. Before I could do anything my weight increased to 125, and I have no idea why. My eating habits didn't change, and if anything I was on my feet more! I recently got a job at a pizza restraunt and am on my feet for 5 hours at a time 3-4 days a week. I began increasing my exercise, and trying to cut back on my fat intake (natural peanut butter, avocados, dark chocolate) and tried to up my protein but nothing has changed.If anything I may have gained a few more! My collar bone has become less defined, and the bones on my shoulders don't stick out as much. (My mom says I look so much healthier) My clothes still all fit, but I am just at a loss. Lately I get full when I've barely eaten anything (all healthy) When a few months ago I could eat whatever, whenever and it not have a negative affect. The only change I can think of is when I have work I will eat a meal that subs as both lunch and dinner around 3 or 4, then come home from work at 9 or 10 and not have anything else until morning. That is really my only diet change. Is my metabolism messed up!? What's going on and how do I stop it?
