I think I'm done losing...

Friday, February 08, 2013

I still have 2kg to go until my goal weight, but I think I'm going to stop here. I weigh 67kg, a number I am happy to say aloud. I look good and I feel great. My thighs still touch and I have a little pouch, but I think that's just how I'm built. I'm confident wearing short shorts and a tight top, or skinny jeans. I'm a size 10-12 (US 6-8) in pants and a 8-10/small in tops. I think I'm going to be happy at this weight. And if I'm not? I can always lose another few kilos later. I'll also keep up with the ST which will help to reshape my body a little.

Starting weight: 87.3kg
Current weight: 66.9kg
Starting BMI: 29.9
Current BMI: 22.9
Starting pants size: 16
Current pants size: 10 (sometimes 12 depending on the cut)
Starting top size: 14/L-XL
Current top size: 8-10/S
Waist measurement in June: 83cm
Waist measurement in Feb: 71cm
Hip measurement in June: 109cm
Hip measurement in Feb: 98cm

I have also reduced my ring size by an average of 5 sizes, my bra band size is 2 sizes smaller, and my feet are a size smaller.

Thanks for all the support while I lost 20 kilos! Here's to maintenance being an easy transition!

    emoticon You look fantastic! I think if you still do want your body to change, then yes... ST is the way to get that done! That is what I am working on... though I still want to lose a few more pounds. But, I know if I gained 5 more pounds and was more toned I wouldn't complain! Do what feels right - YOU know best!! Congrats on getting to maintenance!!

    You're looking good! Maintenance will be a different challenge for you, but I'm sure you will do well because you've put your mind to it! About "losing too fast" Our bodies are quirky marvels. You've flown halfway around the world...twice. Crossed time zones, slept not in your own bed, eaten different foods, and drank different water. Your fitness was different too...mostly walking, which as you found out, can be very beneficial in a weight loss programme! Now you're home again, and your body is still adjusting to all of that. Keep doing what it is that you're doing. Let your body get used to being home again!

    Woohoo! Congrats on reaching this stage :)

    Just so you know... it's SO not easy. People assume you are still trying to 'lose weight' because you still look like you are 'dieting' because you made a lifestyle change. I get a lot of, "omg, stop dieting, you aren't fat" and it gets annoying. It is REALLY hard to eat enough when you are only eating healthy and clean- so I treat myself frequently ;)
