How Will Life Change When I Hit My Weight Goal?

Friday, January 25, 2013

I've worked very hard since October of 2011 to lost weight. Its not been an easy task given the fact that I was diagnosed with PCOS in June of 2012. The weight is coming off slowly but every now and again I've hit a pot hole and gained weight. All of the weight I lost in December from stress has reappeared with a few extra pounds on top of it. I'm not going to let it get me down and I'll work to get that weight back off.

Having said all of that I don't really see my life changing all that much when I hit my weight loss goal. Yeah, I may not work out as much but I'll still work out. I'll still keep an eye on what I'm eating. Its not like I'm going to hit that magic number on the scale and I'm going to throw away all the hard work I've done up to that point. I'm still going to have to make a conscious effort of keeping the weight off, which I can only imagine how that is going to work out.

I will admit I've gotten excited with each size that I've gone down. I don't have a particular size in mind but I remember back in 2005 before I got married I was in a size 9, depending on what I was wearing. I'll never forget that awesome feeling. I can't wait to actually start enjoying shopping again. I remember when I got down around a size 12 the excitement I felt every time I tried clothes on. I want that feeling again.

    It is interesting that we both came to the same conclusion that our lives would not change when we reach our goal weight. Your attitude is a great one, you are not going to throw away all the hard work after the fact! So in the mean time lets work together to get over and around those pot hole in our journey!

    Hi there - how are you doing?

    I think there isn't much difference between the weight loss and the weight loss maintenance.

    I didn't get that in the past. 8 times in 25 years I lost a LOT of weight and gained it all back because I just didn't get it. Ridiculous, huh?

    I like JMERLAU's maintenance plan which, in part, involves a 7 pound range to stay within, if I remember correctly. I'll probably employ something like that myself.

    Make it a great weekend!
