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.
