So I'm 5 lbs under my original goal of 148 and I think I've reached my new goal of happy. It's been about a week and I've been watching my body and although there is still a little I'd like to shave off, I'm not sure it's worth it. I'm afraid that going down to the 130s will result in a loss of boobage and tooshyness
So I think I might stick it out at 140-145 for a while and see how it goes. Not to mention I just spent a bunch of $ on fall/winter clothes that I'm in love with!
It's pretty amazing what going from 148-153 down to 143-148 did. It was a shocking difference. So if you're wishy washy with your goal I highly recommend going the distance for 5 more lbs, you'll be shocked at the difference. 148-153 just didn't feel right for some reason, especially with bloating around TOM, or if I ate too much or was retaining water because the stars were aligning with Mars or whatever. This new range feels a lot better to me.
Now the tricky part will be finding my maintenance "sweet spot". I'm ridiculously happy at my current calorie level so we'll see how this plays out. So I've been thinking about this for a few days, but I think it's time to officially call it...again...it's maintenance time!
