Day 51 – 60 Day Challenge

So in case any of you are wondering, I’ve lost about 15 lbs so far. My weight tends to fluctuate throughout the week so some days it’s more. some days it’s 15. But that’s the loss based on my official weigh in day. I haven’t been this weight in at least 5-6 years. It’s strange because I can’t really tell too much in most of my clothes, but I was able to wear a top today that I hadn’t in a while because it was too tight. And now it’s kind of loose. So these are the things that get me excited. I also treated myself to a new pair of skinny jeans and they’re a smaller size.

I still worry about what I will do when I reach my goal weight. How can I maintain….I think I’m the opposite of most people who think losing weight is hard. It is hard, don’t get me wrong, but it almost seems easier than maintaining.  Because there’s still a part of my mind that thinks that this is a “diet”. That once I lose the weight that’s all I need to worry about. I worry more about maintaing than losing, to be honest. Because I’ve been here before. Granted, I’ve been able to keep off most of my weight for 10 years, so I guess that says something. But it still is on my mind about what I need to do to be consistent in maintaining in the long run.

As for day 51, I tracked in the day but I went to a beer share for the evening and so I can’t even guess points. I know I splurged a lot not only on alcohol, but food as well. I’m okay with it though because I had a great work out yesterday and kept my calories low during the day. 🙂
