I've been maintaining for about a year and a half. It's not that I've been satisfied at this weight (although it's a **** of a lot better than the 70+ pounds I had been carrying!!). I just seemed to stagnate. I plateaued for a really long time, in spite of switching up my diet and exercise, and I decided that the best thing for me to do was to prove to myself that my weight loss wasn't a fluke.
But I think the time has come for me to refocus on losing the remainder of this weight. I'm studying broadcasting right now, and I have one more year of school and know that I will not be comfortable working in the media the way I look now.
So this message is just a declaration of my need to get moving again. I'm proud of myself for treating myself well enough to keep the weight I've lost off. But I'll be prouder when I don't feel the need to be self conscious anymore!
