I have been maintaining my "goal" weight for just over 2 years 10 months, only 2 short months from my 3 year maintenance anniversary. These past nearly three years have been crazy. I have gone from over obsessed, to not caring at all and now I am FINALLY just feeling normal. I went from my goal weight of 160 alway down to 130 very unhealthy pounds and all the way back up to 160, some days give or take a few pounds.
I am now steadily maintaining around 150. 160 May be my "goal" weight but 150 is my ideal weight. I am finally feeling less stressed. I still track everything I eat and my exercise but it doesn't consume me. I don't let my eating habits, the number on the scale or my insecurities ruin my days. I care but I also realize I'm human.
Point of this blog? Maintenance is hard, but so is life. Once you make it past the uncomfortable stage, maintenance is beautiful.
