I've been with y'all for a while now, but haven't posted very often - especially in the last few months. I love it here, though. Y'all are an amazing bunch!
Anyway, over the last 18 months I've lost nearly 60 pounds by cutting out desserts and sweets altogether, eating more whole foods and exercising my butt off.
I'm thrilled with my progress and am almost to my goal. I guess all those good changes got noticed, because I'm also in the first relationship I've had in YEARS with an amazing guy who thinks I'm pretty nifty too.
He's not overweight, is super appreciative of me and very supportive (a total keeper!). The problem is that I'm not used to accomodating anyone else in my schedule, and my weight loss has stopped. In fact, I've gained about 4 or 5 pounds in the last few months.
I'm not about to throw away all my hard work and go back to where I was, but it's tough buying groceries and eating dinner all the time with a boy who has a huge appetite and a speedy metabolism (jerk!)
Does anybody have any advice for me on this front? Exercise is still okay, since he's more than happy to work out with me and we have a lot of fun doing it. I just need some advice about the food!
Thoughts appreciated! I promise to be more active here, too. I think it'll help.
