Reached my goal weight today!

Thursday, December 15, 2011

And then went on to eat more sugar than I have in weeks!! emoticon

The sugar eating is another story, I think. I've thought about it and realize that I have a habit of eating sugar when stressed out, and, clearly, that habit has not died down yet! (Will need to plan extra carefully over Christmas, so it may be good that I had a bit of a wake up call today)

I am happy to have arrived at a weight I never really thought I would reach. I was at this weight once about ten years ago for about a month, so I have no real understanding of what living at this weight will be like. I've increased my calorie range by about 80 calories (I did go over my budget today, but I have forgiven myself for that. I understand what it is about) and will keep on increasing until I reach a point where I'm not losing, but not gaining either. I've given myself a maintenance range of 58kg - 60kg, so approx two pounds above and below my goal weight.

Of course, the big question is, now what? I've been mulling over this for a few days, so here are a few ideas:
emoticon concentrate on getting my food balance right, especially on my fibre and protein intake
emoticon Get my body more toned, especially my abs (although I have lost the most inches around my waist
emoticon Begin to think about how I can use the spark people system to achieve other goals in my life
emoticon Keep tracking nutrition and fitness for at least a year

So, here's to reaching the beginning of my maintenance experience! emoticon
