So about a month ago, I declared that I was at maintenance and was satisfied with my weight. I was wearing a size 14 jeans and large or extra large shirt, but really I wasn't satisfied. I was still considered to be class I obesity by the BMI charts. What I really needed was a breather. I have been dieting consistently for about 1.5 years. I took 2 weeks off, loosely counted calories and maintained my exercise. I ate what I wanted, but of course not too much because of my gastric bypass surgery. Tell you what, I had Popeyes chicken, Taco bell meximelts, Chinese (spicy chicken combo), McDonald's. Guess what? I enjoyed the break, but the food wasn't as good as I remembered. I "gained 8 pounds". I assume it was water weight from all the sodium, because I lost those 8 pounds in less than a week of going back to my plan of eating healthy, wholesome, home cooked meals, (love my black beans, red beans, tuna, salmon, brown rice, wheat bread, etc, skinny cow ice cream or no sugar ice cream) ---funny how those foods are more fulfilling to me now.
Now that I'm back on track and motivated, I'm down to a size 12 jeans and medium or large shirts!
Thank you everyone for your support!
