I am about 5'3 to 5'4" and I weigh 124 pounds. Last year this time, I weighed 118-119 pounds.
My highest weight ever in life was 200. I dropped to 150 because I got sick. Then I went from 150 to 118 by calorie counting.
I have been exercising a lot (cardio, toning). I find that I am getting hungry more often so I do eat when I am hungry and stop when I am full. I have not been as strict with my calories as I should though so that is probably why I have gained weight. If you are not strict with your calories and you have bad genes like I do, you will blow up quickly!
I know this sounds silly but I am scared of blowing up and getting fat again. When you are already at a healthy weight, how do you lose weight without being hungry all of the time? How do you get that last 5 pounds off?
I am in my late 20s. I would like to drop down to where I was last year which was 119. That will give me some wiggle room so even if I do gain weight, I will not blow up.
I am not on Spark People online a lot but I track my calories the old fashioned way (on paper).
Thanks in advance for your time.
