Is this time different?

In maintenance since June 1, 2012


Goal weight!

I still cannot believe it, but I lost all the weight I intended to lose! I have not binged since New Year’s Eve, and it is the first time in my life that I can eat healthy, be in control and lose –slowly but finally!– 10 kilos without ever quitting for almost 5 months.
I still need to lose some more weight to feel comfortable in a bathing suit, but I want to learn a new lesson before I lose some more: I want to learn to maintain and exercise regularly. I thought about maintaining through the winter, and starting again in spring, and only if I still want to lose more. As I never maintained low weight, I do not know what my body will do if I don’t start bingeing again. Will I continue losing, more slowly? Will the exercise make lose some more? Or maybe not! Will the shape of my body change with exercise and maintenance? Well, it is a new experience for me, and I am 47! I wish I had been able to be this balanced when I was younger –I think my life would have been very different– but I am happy I am able to learn new tricks even though I am (almost) an old dog. There is hope, people!
So, I will be publishing here my progress as a maintainer for some months. Hope it does not get too boring for occasional readers. The plan is to up my calories to around 1350 –I am on 1200– to see what happens, and keep at that level through June.
Reporting back to you soon!
