Still hanging around in maintenance mode. My weight fluctuates as low as 121 and as high as 124 when I weigh myself. The 121 was a surprise when I started seeing that in the mix – that is my lowest weight yet. But I am not really trying to lose anymore. I would say my goal is to hang out between 120-125 pounds. Having that room takes the pressure off a little. I am not overly concerned if I’m up or down a few pounds. A 5 pound range is easy to deal with, mentally.
This last week my husband and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary. We celebrated a lot – eating out and drinking a few times, even staying the night at a hotel. It was really fun. The week is wrapped up now, and as good as it was, there is a big part of me that is fed up with eating out. Ready to get back to normal mode! I also want to step back and lower the amount of alcohol I drink even more. I HATE that bloated alcohol feeling the next day, even if I only have a few drinks. All those empty calories are really such a waste. I’ve also read a few articles that say your body doesn’t know how to process fat and carbs when alcohol is introduced so your body just stores it. Gross. I’m not cutting out alcohol entirely, just cutting back. Seems dumb to work so hard on exercise and healthy eating only to undo it in a few glasses.
Here is a quick progress picture from when I first hit 121 on the scale:
And pics from this month, just because.
I seem to be REALLY into the exact same pose this month. Hand on hip, slight turn to camera. BOOM (ridiculous).
