Losing weight was easy.... Maintenance and losing my last 10ish pounds... hardest EVER.
The lowest weight I've seen is 181.2, the highest recently that I've seen, 191.2. My weight fluctuates so bad after a fun weekend that, yes, I know it is water weight, but some of that weight sticks too. The scale recently, on weigh in days has been 183/184. So I know by this Friday that my weight will be around 184, but seeing that 191 on the scale last night was disheartening. Also, I put on my pants yesterday and I could tell that they were a bit tighter. I measured myself and I've put on an inch or so in my stomach. How does that work if you're the same weight? The foods I'm eating are putting inches on me. Granted, the things I've been eating as of lately haven't been as healthy as they were before, I'm still working out just as much. I have, however, stopped doing weight training, so maybe that is where my problem is.
I'm just going through the actions lately. I still go to the gym daily, but my food and tracking has gone a bit lax. I need to buckle down and make it just as important to me as it was before. This is going to be something I know I will struggle with the rest of my life. If I let it get away from me now, things will go back down hill again soon. I'm getting married in a year and a half and I want to look my best. Might as well start now, toning my arms, tightening my stomach as much as I can.
The things I know I need to do, that I know I can do, to get back on track...
Weight training at least 3 times a week. Arms, stomach and legs all high priority.
60 minutes of elliptical daily, with some days doing stair machine as well.
Walks out when its nice also, trying to drag the fiance along!
Track food and stay within 1250-1500 a day. Every day except Saturday's. Even Saturdays, only 2000 or so.
I know how to do this, I just need to buckle down again and get it done. Can't let it get out of control.
