My ten-year high school reunion is coming up at the beginning of August, and I'm finding myself a little flipped out about it - on the one hand, so much has happened in ten years that I can honestly say it feels like high school happened a lifetime ago, but on the other hand, I'm having a hard time really wrapping my head around the fact that I'm THAT old! I know, I know, 28 isn't "old", it's just, in my own mind, sometimes I still feel like I'm not quite a grown-up yet, and people who have reunions to go to are, unequivocally, grown-ups, as far as I'm concerned.
I've been doing pretty well with maintenance lately - I was down to a low of 140 lbs, and have been maintaining pretty much at 142 for the last three or so weeks, but I really, really want to kick things into high gear for the next month or so, to make sure I'm in awesome shape at the reunion. I wasn't much heavier in HS than I am right now, but I was definitely awkward, and unpolished, and just generally nerdy looking, so I'd really like to look a lot more sophisticated and well-put-together when I go to the reunion. (Plus, I have a dress that I ordered online that I'd like to wear to the reunion, and while the dress fits right now, it'd look way better if I lost 5 or so pounds!)
So anyway, I'm back to tracking calories, and I'm still primarily paleo in my diet. I'm 100% paleo at home, and try to maintain a somewhat paleo diet when eating out or at social events as well, and I really do attribute this new way of eating with my newfound ability to maintain weight loss without trying very hard. That said, paleo alone isn't going to take off the next 15 lbs, so I'm definitely back to tracking for the foreseeable future. Can't wait to see my results!
