Obviously, I’m a little more flexed in the right picture and more relaxed in the left. The camera angle is off, I’m so incredibly bloated (have been dehydrated this past week). But this is the aftermath of reverse dieting for almost three weeks.
I had emailed allthingsval about how terrified I was to increase my intake, and continually emailed her freaking out (because that’s what I do; I freak out and email everyone possible for help) that I thought I was getting “fluffy” after a week. She told me to trust it, and I’m beginning to more and more.
I went from eating 1300-1400 calories a day (roughly <100g of carbs) to eating around anywhere from 1800-2000 calories a day, and I’m so close to eating 200g of carbs a day (IT’S FUCKING AWESOME). From this I dropped down to 115lbs (from 119lbs) and am so fucking happy. I’m restoring my metabolism and I’m eating foods I LOVE.
I’m so much healthier. I feel better. I have more energy. And the idea of bulking and gaining muscle is making me so incredibly happy and excited:)
Just wanted to make a quick post because I’ve been getting a lot of questions about girls being terrified to up their intake for recovery, health reasons, bulking, or just to overcome their weight loss plateau. Once we start eating the right amount for our body, that’s when our mental and physical health falls into place.
