Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

Last Sunday I hit 100 lbs lost.  I lost over 4 lbs just between that Wed and Sun.  I was pretty nervous that I wouldn't be able to stay that low.  Seeing as I hadn't lost any weight since August despite trying and I was in the bathroom what seemed like all day long for those few days before the big loss.  Well this Sun, a week later I weighed in at 184.2, so up almost a lb.  I'm totally counting that as a success for maintaining the loss.  Because I lost 4 lbs at once, I never celebrated becoming overweight.  So I'm giving myself a shout out, so that I don't take it for granted or forget how amazing it feels.  I never want to be obese again. 

I got out of obesity at 185 lbs and lost 100 at 184.  In my mind, I would hit one and then the other, not both at once and even an extra lb.  It was wonderful. 

I'm still nervous that I'll gain the weight back, I don't know when or if that fear goes away.  I also don't know if I want it to.  Maybe a little fear is healthy for me. 


Today I went over on calories, but knew that I would because yesterday I only ate 1200-1300 and then burned 830 running 7 miles.  I knew today I would be extra hungry and have to make up for it.  So today I was at around 1900 cals.  Not bad at all, I didn't mindlessly eat.  I consciously ate over my calorie target for what my body needed.

You are amazing Megan.  About the fear of gaining the weight back?  For me it is always there.  It was much stronger earlier on in my weight loss.  The longer time goes by the more confident I become that I won't gain the weight back.  I think a small amount of fear will always be there- and I am glad.  I need it!!

As long as you fear gaining it back, you won't. It's when we get careless and STOP thinking about it that it creeps back up. :)

Excellent! You deserve lots of shout outs! I agree about that fear of regaining the weight. Do you read any of the site? I've heard it's good but I'm not quite there yet.

You are starting to sound like a pro at this- I like the way you really observe what's going on day to day and make adjustments. And, CONGRATS on reaching "overweight" status, and being out of obesity. That is my dearest goal as well. So happy for you to be there, and to be in maintenance. From what I read, even at maintenance, it is always work, but if you understand that and are willing to do the work, you will never have to worry about regaining. And if you do regain, you simply have a cap- watch the scale and don't let it take off. Notice it going up, and dig in with your best strategies. You already seem to have this perspective, the way you analyze the day to day activity vs. calories. I think you're going to be just fine! Congrats again!
