Blog Prompt - Am I afraid of regaining lost weight...

Ain't gonna happen!
I haven't been "good" these past few days, but I haven't been bad either. Just maxed out my calories for several days. My dad, the baker, has been working on his strudel recipe and since he is famous for his NY Cheesecake he is making Cheese Strudel! Sadly this last batch was "too good" and I had 2 portions! I froze what was left.
Then I was given some hand-me-down jeans that I know are too small but figured, what the heck and tried them on. 2 pair almost fit and 3 pair are inches away from closing.
I know I am not going to put back this weight. What I don't know is if I have reached the bottom yet, lol.
Good day all!
Here is the reply I gave to MSLZZY & FINDINGREALME:
What I did was first find my "happy weight" and I have passed that, 129.
Now I am looking to my "Ideal Weight" according to the charts. I should be somewhere around 117-119 according to my frame and height.
But I am thrilled to be 123 this morning. For myself I don't think it hurts to keep a goal weight in front of me. But I am also thrilled to be where I am so it is no longer really obsessive. Maybe mildly obsessive, lol.
I do know that if you start getting dizzy and/or no energy, you are too low.
My doctor asked me how far I walk daily and when I told him I am averaging 5 miles daily he informed me that I am not to light and gave me the green light to go for the Ideal Weight.
I hope this helps.
To find the Blog Prompt, you can click on the link at the bottom of my blog. But I am signed up for Spark Emails and the Blog Prompt came in one of today's emails. I can only tell you it was a "weekly roundup" email I think. I can't find it now to tell you more. Ok, just found it, the email is called "The Weekly Spark"
