    Confused!

    Hi all! Wonder if anyone can help? I was doing sw and lost inches rather than weight which I know is good but my mentality tells me I need to too loss on scales! Anyway I switched to calorie counting on 17th and although the scales now show a loss my clothes are tighter??
    I started calorie counting as just wanted to shift a little bit extra before my wedding on 1st august but seems to be having opposite effect and now I dunno what to do, my dress is snug and if I am getting bigger it won't fit and have already had my final fitting just to ask does it matter what you use your calories on? Like can I eat less food with same calorie count eg a small Chinese instead of a big healthy dinner (but both the same calories?) thanks

    Hey sweet, sorry you havnt had any replies I asked for advice too and didn't get any either! I think the weight/inches difference sounds a bit weird, are you eating any higher sugar/sodium food that could be causing you to retain water? Obviously you get a lot more food if you stick to healthy stuff but there's lots if arguments over whether the quality of the nutrition y consume affects weight loss as technically it's just energy in vs energy out. There was a nutrition professor in the states who went on a calorie restricted diet of twinkles and Doritos and lost two stone in 3 months to prove to his students it's all about the calories, but I bet he felt awful!

    im sorry I can't help you, but generally I think it really is cals in vs cals out but maybe try and stick to whole wheat carbs, fruit, veg etc so you're not retaining any water. Lots of luck for your big day! X
    If we stop trying...we will never win.

    Hi both thanks for your messages big day getting very close now!! Been calorie counting a week tomorrow so see what wi says tomorrow! I don't get chance to do exercise with 6 kids and working full time! Iv downloaded something called pacer to track my steps so see what that days tomorrow! I normally struggle to eat 1200 calories if I'm being sensible but so hungry today! Hoping that means metabolism has stepped up a bit but who knows! How are you both getting on how many calories do you both eat and how much do you have to lose? My diary public if anyone cares to have a look see what you think? Bit over the place at the minute and 2 very bad days as my little girl was poorly in hosp so just grabbing what I could! Xx
