Today has been my second day at goal! I’ve been wondering where I go from here? Diet Chef has been fantastic and I still have another month’s supply coming, to keep me in check but they don’t offer a maintenance plan as far as I’m aware – so I kind of now feel on my own and I need to start figuring out where I go from here. One place I’m going… is to revise my target!
10st 10lb is perfect for me, I like me at this weight and I’m really concerned that should I go lower I’ll just become scrawny and aged… but I have no room for mistakes at 150lbs - that’s the highest weight for my height that will allow me to be considered ‘normal’ so I think I’m going to make an effort to reduce my goal weight by a further 3lbs - taking me to 10st 7lbs – which does leave room for a few indulgences now and again, whilst remaining in my acceptable weight range.
I need to take a few days to consider things in more depth, including my gym membership, which has been laying dormant for a few months now – whilst the fee continues to come out of my bank account! I’m not sure what to do, I am still getting great exercise walking but is that enough? However, it’s pretty pointless to have a gym membership that I’m paying for but not using…. can I get my A into G – so that I can earn extra calories and continue to improve my fitness level and tone?
This is a complete danger zone. I had given it thought but more in a dreamy, hopeful, fantasy state kind of way! I still can’t believe I’m actually 10st 10lb but what I can belive – is that it can all go back on twice as quick as it has come off! I know that for a fact and from experience – so I’m going to think this one through carefully!
In the meantime I thought I’d post some photos taken on Sunday night at my nephew’s 21st – the dress I’m wearing is 12yrs old and it literally only fit me for a month before I burst out of it – I dieted for Christmas and New Year 1999 and it’s been a dress I’ve been determined to get back into ever since – I’ve not managed it in all these years until now – my perseverance paid off!
