Calorie Cycling and other weight stuff

So, for the last two weeks I have been doing what is called calorie cycling. I honestly don’t know if it is helping or not. I have been stuck at 142 lbs for two weeks now. Today was a high day and I consumed 1437 calories. Honestly, (believe it or not after my binge) that is high for me. Though this is still below my daily caloric intake, I feel myself getting bigger. Tomorrow is a low day, and I should consume about 1230. I used to consume 1000 a day but the feeling of passing was getting to me, and I honestly don’t want to trade in obesity for anorexia.

I honestly am making up this “lifestyle change” guideline as I go along. Can some knowing person let me in on the metabolism secret? Or the exercise game? I get up between 3:45 and 4:15 AM Monday thru Friday and exercise on my exercise bike for 45 minutes to an hour. On Monday, Wednesday, Friday, I go to the gym after to do cardio for another 45 minutes to an hour. I then try to do three weight machines with three sets of 12. ¬†Though I missed my morning workout, I got to do my nightly workout. After going at this for varying degrees for two years, I still don’t feel fit. I have this nasty flab in places and don’t feel pretty or healthy.

Le sigh…
