Ridin’ off into the sunset

For the first time I’m consistently feeling hungry at the end of the day, pretty much every day. I’m not sure yet what to do with that. I’ve been considering bumping my calories up 100 to make room for an extra banana in the evening but there’s a big part of me that wants to see if my body will just adjust and I can stay where I’m at.

I’m at 1719 calories at the moment which does not seem unreasonable but it’s definitely harder to stay on plan while hungry. Plus I’ve been working pretty hard to learn how to listen and respond to my body and my body seem to be saying it wants more food. On the other hand I’m really liking my progress and kind of unwilling, at the moment, to see it slow down.

Well we’ll see how it goes. I’m also toying with the idea of having a couple of maintenance days (or a maintenance week) after I hit the 30lbs lost mark. I have a theory that it’s hard for your body to lose weight so giving it a break once in awhile seems like a smart idea.

What will I do? No idea yet…stay tuned!
