I know January and February are months that many of us set our minds on weight loss and other self improvement regimes. Last year, about this time, I did. My goal was to lose 45 pounds and get to a BMI of less than 25.
Most of my followers have been with me long enough to know that I reached that goal last September. By early November I had dropped a few more pounds. Then came the hard months: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a month long RV trip. I tried very hard to enjoy good things in moderation.
I took the scale along on our trip and weighed in every day. I seem to have about a three pound variation from day to day. If I am at the top of that three pound range, I eat less and am very careful until I go back down. If I weigh in at the bottom, I relax and might enjoy a small treat, or not.
I'm currently pleased with the fact that I did not gain weight over the holidays, or at least I did not keep it on. I have maintained a weight loss of 53 pounds and a BMI of 23.6.
I might want to do another push later this spring and try to drop a few more pounds, but if I don't thats OK too. I love my new body!
But I find it is almost as hard to keep the pounds off as it was to lose them. Committing to post about it occasionally gives me just a little more motivation to do so.
Thanks for all the support and encouragement you all have given me this year.
I am learning to eat to live, not live to eat.
