Closing in on One Year of Maintenance!
Wednesday, February 06, 2013
Only three weeks remain before I will have the joy of celebrating one year of maintaining my 100 pound loss! I am so proud of myself, and so amazed at the same time. Never before had I maintained any substantial loss for more than a few days. I was either losing or gaining. I had only been able to maintain when I had reached my high weight of 248 a few years ago--I had pretty much stayed there for about a year--and that was only because I had given up on trying to lose weight after the last re-lapse, and I just decided to be happy with where I was.
Maintenance continues to be a new journey every day--I've been getting a little bored with what I've been eating for months, so I've introduced (or re-introduced some old favorites) some different choices. I'm hoping that will help to tackle some of the sweet/salty cravings I have had lately. I know these cravings may also have something to do with the HRT that I have been on for the last almost 2 months, but I like the stabilized moods that I have been having so much!! I'd like to figure out a way to live with this new medication in a manageable way in regards to my weight maintenance.
New challenges are not something that I'm unfamiliar with, so I'm up for it!!
