The journey continues
At the moment I am using my blog to plan the best approach and gradually increase my calorie intake without (too much ) weight gain.
I quite like the way I look right now.
I have moments, when I deliberately stare at myself in the mirror.
Scanning my body head to toe. Why?
Because it is time to accept it, love it and be proud of how far I've come.
Loosing 27 kg was not a quick miracle.
After reading around and asking for advice this is what I have come to conclude for the next phase.
On work out days , Now: I am only eating around 980 cals at best. NOT VERY PROUD OF THIS
Week 1: I will increase to 1080 cals at least.
Check weight if up: keep it at 1080 cals to let my body adjust
Week 2 :1180 cals and I am almost there
Week 3 : 1280 cals
Week 4 : 1380 cals
This should be non exercise days really but I will gradually work on it. It is going to take time I believe.
Stop fearing weight gain
Expect fluctuation but it is not the end of the world
Food is to nourish my body
I want to be healthy - the reason why I started this in the first place So I need to stop underfeeding my body
There is my next step
Has anyone done this before. Increasing calories post-weightloss?
I am sure you have, I would love to read from you.
