Weight, Fitness, Maintaining

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

My weight is where I want it to be right now. I reached my initial goal weight back in March, knowing well enough that I could lose more, but it wouldn't be completely necessary.

My weight has been exactly the same for 2 weeks now. This is very good. My dress for my wedding has already been altered and it is at my dads waiting for my wedding day. There is not much time left (less than 2 months) so I need to my sure my weight stays the same so that my dress isn't falling off the day of.

My fitness issue is that since my body could, and probably would, lose more weight if I let it, I'm not working out as much right now. 2-3x a week of intended cardio/ST is basically the max I get, the rest of the week I might go for a walk or do a quick ST exercise at home, but nothing too heart pumping.

This is obviously affecting my yearly fitness minute goal, as well as my goals with certain teams that have a fitness component.
I wanted to post this blog to let everyone know why my numbers/points/ etc may be lower than you'd expect from me. It's really just so I don't have to worry about how to pull in my dress the day of the wedding haha!

I am going to adjust my yearly fitness minute goal to reflect my "lack of fitness" from March to now, through June. Once the wedding is over, I won't care if I still lose weight because the dress part will be over.

Good news through all this : I know how to maintain!

Have a great first day of May everyone!

    emoticon on successfully maintaining!! That really is a skill that is very important in living your healthy lifestyle after reaching your final goal weight. Most people feel maintenance is harder than losing, so it is definitely a great accomplishment. I personally don't know if I think it's harder -- it just requires consistent focus and making the same good choices (most of the time) that you did to lose weight. You just don't have to worry so much about creating deficits.

The wedding date will be here in no time ~ how exciting!

I hope work is settling down some and that Chris is doing well.

    You keep doing what you need to to have that dress fit! You are doing pretty darn good, I say!

    Congratulations on maintaining your weight! I don't think you need to stress too much about your dress -- most places will alter them to fit if you lose another inch or so

    emoticon and maintaining is harder than losing. You can still get in your fitness minutes doing low intense exercises. emoticon

    Ya! for maintaining and doing what needs to be done. I'm sure your other teams will understand as there are some things even more important than SP. I think a wedding is one of them!

Good luck and remember...if you are at your goal weight you don't NEED to lose anymore. Now that you know how to maintain...use that.

Happy May Day!
