In the last year I've lost 45lbs. Slowly my weight loss had become loss-gain-loss-gain and now after my vacation this summer, I'm up 10lbs. I was so desperately close to the 130s but I couldn't hold onto it. I'm in the 150s again.
The thing is, it's like my mind was in a total daze and the weight seemed to just fly away without me thinking about it. Then it decided to start coming back. It's like just now I'm waking up, realizing, "Wait a minute, wait a minute. This isn't where I want to be heading."
I'm going into 12th grade in two weeks, living at home, and my dad cooks healthy food for me. I'm in charge of my own eating, though, and I find myself doing a lot of social eating lately. Its like now that I'm thinner I have more confidence to make friends, but with more friends comes more activities in groups which usually leads to food. It's like it was easier to lose weight when I was lonely because I didn't ever go out and do anything fun, so I would eat at home all the time.
I feel like my activity level is standard. I'm active frequently but it's not always very strenuous, so I'm not terribly unfit but I wouldn't consider myself fit either.
I'm at my last 25lbs. I just want to get it off, because I know how to maintain my weight and I just want to get right into maintenance. I don't have much patience, but if it takes a year, that's fine. Can someone just tell me how to make a plan? I think my fatal weight loss flaw is that I don't plan to lose weight. It used to just kind of happen, but now I think I have to really stick my nose in and get'r'done.
How do you plan? How should I? I'm sure I could look for other planning threads but I want one that's personal to me so I can figure a plan for ME. Please help?
I apologize for the length of my ranting... thanks for reading.
