... so I have been eating practically non-stop... but this morning I got on the scale twice because I just didn't believe my eyes.
... back to 118.6 and needing to regain 5 lbs again. Just in case anyone thinks I am not trying, this is what I have been eating since last Thursday, 9/10
9/10 2447 cal eaten
9/11 2578 cal eaten
9/12 2617 cal eaten
9/13 2620 cal eaten
9/14 2741 cal eaten
9/15 2520 cal eaten
9/16 3030 cal eaten
9/17 2365 cal eaten
Yesterday I goofed and forgot to change my melon from 2 C to 1 C so I did have a Calorie Deficit of 95 when I really need to be in negative territory to gain. And I used this golden opportunity to eat a pint of ice cream too! But it was low-calorie stuff, only 130 per half cup.
I have to tell you, I really don't think weight maintenance is going to be that difficult as long as I continue to track daily and use the By The Numbers Calorie Deficit Chart. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i
Thanks MEGSAMAMA for the chart! www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=ME
If my weight is still too low on Monday, I do believe I might just eat a piece of my dad's cake after all.
I need to mention here for those reading but not knowing me and the situation, I have recently reached goal only to find out I need to regain 5 lbs in order to be able to continue donating blood platelets.
At least it is not a health issue. But it is funny.
9/19: I need to add here and thank you all for your comments and concerns. My blogs tend to be a little "tongue in cheek" and I like to have a lot of fun in my days, it keeps me going.
Even better, this is a glorious opportunity in Weight Management/Maintenance/Maintaining because we all fear (to some degree) putting this weight back on. I am living proof that if we maintain our level of Cardio, it will not be an uphill battle to maintain our weight. It would be a battle regaining weight as long as we keep the habits we have already made. Truly it has to be a lifestyle change.
Love y'all, have a great day,
