I’m officially in “new” weight loss. Today I hit 198.09. Previous low was on January 11th of this year at 198.2 on the same scale. So I’m officially back on a roll. I have been eating 4-5 IP products per day, as well as my 8-10oz of protein and veggies….staying under 50 carbs (not net carbs) per day. This seems to be working for me right now with exercising vigorously. I may need to watch the calories….but working out does make you hungrier, and I’m still staying to plan, just eating more calories (1050-1200 per day instead of 750-950). I think currently I’m making up the difference by burning more by exercise. We shall see.
I did determine that I’m very afraid of getting to maintenance, because that is a new hard. I’ve never really tried to maintain in my life. I’m scared of being someone that gains some/most/all of their weight back. Some is fine, within reason. As I’ve stated before I think it’s normal/average to play with 5 to 8 pounds, especially in the winter. I want to get to the point where I’m like “hmmm, my pants are little tight today, better watch it for a few days”. You know, like a normal person. 😉
Happy Valentines Day stalkers!
