g to figure it out
Thursday, October 08, 2009
i have been trying to find the time to sit down and blog about this for a while now....but i have actually been keeping pretty busy! So...for the past 3 weeks, i have been in maintenance mode. 135 was my goal, i got there and decided not to set a new lower goal, and that it was time to stop losing weight. SOOOOOOO....................th
is was the initial plan for maintenance-- i know that to maintain my weight loss, i needed to add some calories to my diet. so i figured that since we tend to have alot of going out plans and get togethers on the weekends, i would just continue to eat like i am on a diet just during the week....and then on the weekends i could allow myself to be a little more relaxed on what i eat, and then keep my exercise routine the same as it has been. and the extra calories would just even out and keep me at the same weight. well, this has been working great for me because it's pretty easy to do pretty well on the weekdays, and then i have something to look forward to on the weekends---yummy food!
Ok, so here's the catch. in the past 3 weeks of "maintaining" i have lost 3 lbs. WHAT???? how did that happen? my official weigh day is thursday mornings. ( i like the weigh myself at the end of the week when i have had time to get rid of all the sodium and crap from the weekend eating) as of 25 minutes ago, when i weighed in, i was 132.4 which is ok, but i truly am not trying to keep on losing weight. so what do i do? i am really wary of adding calories to my day during the week because i am so scared of getting out of control...and i feel like on the weekends it is ok to get slightly out of control, because i know monday is coming, and that once monday gets here-i have to get back to business! so i don't know. i am not saying that i think that 132.4 is a bad thing, but i have had people tell me that it is time to stop losing weight. so................ i guess i am going to have to rethink my maintenance plan.
any tips or help would be appreciated...and i am not boo hoo-ing about losing weight, it is just that i am pretty happy with where i am at-and i am pretty much terrified to do something that is going to make me gain weight again, or get back into the bad habbits that lead to weight gain!
i hope everybody has a good weekend! i have been craving a mcflurry all week, and can't wait to have one this weekend lol!
