If you clicked onto this post thinking I might have advice on how to maintain your weight, you will be dissapointed.
I know how to gain weight. I once weighed 270lbs after all.
I know how to lose weight. I lost 112lbs.
But maintain? I couldn't tell you. I weighed in around 164 this morning, up about 6 from my lowest. This isn't a huge number, and I'm not freaked out or super upset by it.
Why? Because I know why it's there. I'm eating too much. I am really struggling with figuring out how much/how to eat to maintain. I am eating ice cream. A lot of ice-cream. I don't know how to eat normally, I've never tried to maintain my weight before. Ever. In my life. I'm working my ass off in the gym, which means I'm eating enough too much that even the gym can't hold it back. Which is a bit much, to me.
So I'm going to try to figure out what this means to me. I know what I would need to do to really lose, which is get a fill and cut back on the crap. I don't need to lose that much more though, and I like the restriction level I'm at. The stuff that is making me gain is regular soda and ice-cream. I know better, but it is happening. So I'm posting this here, for a bit of accountability and maybe some help-seeking.
I know how I'm going to get these 6 or whatever pounds off... It's when I'm back to 158 and trying to maintain that, what the heck do I do!?
Love you ladies!
