Struggling to maintain...

Wednesday, July 02, 2008 my huge loss was due to stress of the past year.
Now that life has become somewhat stable, I'm struggling to maintain.

In the last 7 weeks I've added 2 lbs.

I know 2 lbs isn't a lot of weight, but my goal is to stay under 142...I'm afraid of letting the weight creep back on, because that's how I became overweight in the first place.

My appetite was so poor during the stress, and now that I'm happy again.
Don't get me wrong...I like being happy.

But, when everything made me sick, i ate a lot of high calorie foods to make sure I got in all my calories for the day.

Unfortunately, I've gained 2 lbs and bad habits.

    Hey, I hope that you're doing well! I just saw this blog and thought I'd respond even though it's over a month old! LOL. Don't forget to keep low calorie food around so you can munch on stuff when you get hungry (since your appetite has resumed/increased).

  Are you sure the weight you gained is due to eating? I gained some weight but I soon found out that it was my muscles growing because I increased my strength training.

So if you have gained muscular mass, there`s nothing to worry about!

Being happy is great, but I too tend to eat too much when I am enjoying myself! My only advice is to work out a balance. Indulge over the weekend, be stricter during the week
