I don't know if I can really say I've reached my goals, when I'm still technically overweight. I also don't really like the fact that I'm still a size 14/16. But I can tell that if I'm not already at my body's set point, I'm getting there.
I know there are "tricks" that I can do to keep getting the weight off. Cutting out dairy, eat even fewer carbs, blah blah blah. I want to be at the weight I can maintain, while still eating the foods I want!
If I had a different body type I wouldn't give a second thought to my weight. If my extra weight was in my hips or butt instead of my stomach, I would be totally fine with the weight I'm at now! Mostly because I'd be a smaller size and I'd have the extra weight in the "correct" AKA healthier places.
But even if my body is not perfect, it can do so much more for me now that I am healthier! So why am I not at my goal? Because I want to keep setting new goals! I want to continue making healthier choices. Increase the amount of weight I'm lifting. I guess my goals are just different now. Maybe more weight will come off, but I don't know if I'm going to watch it as closely as I used to.
So I'm not necessarily celebrating just yet! =P
Edit : Ok, so maybe I'll do just a little celebrating anyway! I've reached one of my goals, now I'll just keep working on the others. I also wanted to edit the blog and add this comment that I left for someone :
I'm definitely thinking a fitness approach is what I want to switch to instead of just focusing so much on the scale. I can probably lose weight even if I'm not being as obsessed about it. Plus I'd be willing to try more foods instead of constantly switching the bag/box around to see how many calories it is. I want to become more consistent with my exercise and not JUST do it as a means to burn calories, but as something that is fun!
