A year of mantaince

So this is maintenance ha?
Wow its even been almost a full year scene my last blog post too. well, I am here, still between 130 and 135 sometimes hitting scream weight of 136 but not often. its been going well I suppose, though I do confess throughout this year I've never once thought of what I was doing as maintaining. I was always ( sometimes secretly ) tiring to lose another 5 to 10 lbs. curious & wanting to see what I would look like at 125 but feeling like most people just didn't think that was a healthy weight for me. not sure why.
Anyway perhaps due to lack of support and certainly due to a halfhearted effort those last 10lbs, remain. abs constantly playing peekaboo reminding me they are in fact here I just need to uncover them. I get the gumption under me to really focused on weight loss again and someone says "wow shes ripped like Sarah Conner" and I stop, not all together sure that's the goal I really need to be after. unsure just how far I should take this body of mine. is Sarah Conner really who I want to look like? Sometimes I say Hell Ya! other days I'm not so sure... but I digress
A few things have changed. I am now contemplating a carrier in fitness. I'm just not sure where my shy introverted personalty would fit. But I do devour all the nutrition and fitness information I can get my hands on and I never stop reading about it. I love health and fitness and it has become a way of life. It would seem to be an obvious choice for a carrier and besides I don't currently have any carrier under my belt. It may be time to deiced what I want to be when I grow up. LOL. I have many people still complement me ask when I will start teaching the classes or if I'm training for a fitness form competition. It still feels so unreal to have people say things like this to me. when the weight-loss was fresh I was sure it was just away of people saying 'way to go!' but now I hear it from people who haven't seen me on any other shape. people have even said to me "well you've never been over weight so you don't understand" LOL I was blown away someone thought I was just naturally fit and had always been. I hear it so often ( that's embarrassing to say I feel like I'm bragging ) anyway its often enough that I'm pretty convinced it would be shame if I didn't try for something...perhaps personal training? I doubt I would ever find enough gall to stand on stage in-front of a class of 30+ and instruct them, but one on one or even 4 to 5 on one that I could probably handle without getting too red faced and stammering. lol. I did wait tables for years and I found away to push through my shyness then so I could do it for something I really care about... I or should be able to anyway :)
As for the technical stuff.. if your wondering. here is something odd. I haven't lost a that last 5-10 and my waist is still 27.3". Well Its actually 27" when I'm closer to 130lbs and 27.5" when I'm closer to 135lbs but and don't ask me how but I am now a size 4 not a 6 and I have far more muscle definition then I did a year ago. muscle is a funny thing it really does change your body. I'll post a picture in a few days ( bad time of the month right now). still 5'4" lol.
