So I started into my 1800 calorie deficit today and that was short lived. My sinus issues have been improving, but since I was flying I know it's going to drag on for a while... so I thought I should just get into it. Well, I started to feel that hunger nauseous feeling and it seemed to amplify my sinus pain and I just felt like crap. I'm thinking I should wait on the big deficit until my sinus issues are gone... which look to be dragging on for a while.
In the mean time, I think I'll do the tiny deficit thing for now. When the sinus stuff is gone, I'll probably have the mental fortitude to deal with the nauseous hunger feeling that comes with a real deficit.
