I've thought it through and I've decided that unless I'm trying to lose weight...I'm gaining it...so it really wouldn't be in my best interest to keep trying to lose 2lbs a week for the next 30 weeks ... if I do I will just be burned out for the Winter and the Winter is when I diet the best anyways..so I just need to stay 100 % on track for the next 4 weeks (for my work contest) and then after that ... maintain for 6 months so that at the end of September I can be ready to go again and lose my remaining 50 pounds just in time for Summer and my 10 year anniversary to Islands.
In 5 or so weeks I plan to back off my weight loss and start learning how to maintain.....this doesn't mean that I am at my goal weight by any means it just means that maintenance is what I need practice at.
I have decided I am going to still count my calories and stay around 1400.. eat healthy Sun-Friday (maybe even breakfast and lunch on Saturday) and then Saturday evening will be my free meal and drinks
Also I will be cutting back on exercise...currently I work out 7 days a week for 45 min - an hour. I will be trying to cut back to 2-3 days a week 1 hour.
I will still be weighing in weekly so we will see how this plan works and go from there.
Then around the end of September beginning of October I will start up phase 3 of my weight loss....and hopefully reach my goal of 129 before my 10 year anniversary cruise May 2013.
