You may have noticed that I haven’t blogged in quite some time. This was on purpose. When I started my weight loss journey, I set a short-term goal of going from 254 pounds to 200. I achieved that goal!!! When I hit 200 pounds, I made a decision to try and live life “normally”. Let me explain…during my weight loss phase, I was reading every weight loss blog possible, I was counting calories obsessively, weighing myself daily and I was tending to this blog. All of these helped me achieve one of my goals. I owe my weight loss to being diligent with counting calories. When I hit my goal, I decided to try and live without counting calories and to eat right on my own. I quit getting on the scale everyday and I tried to be mindful with what I was eating. It has worked to some extent. I have maintained my weight at 200 pounds. I have not lost anymore weight, but I have not gained any either. I consider this a huge success! I can live without counting calories.
I have moved into phase two of my weight loss. I want to go from 200 pounds to 185 pounds (which is my long-term/final goal). I feel that going back to what I know works is the best path of success for me. I will be counting calories again and I will be religiously updating this blog.
It feels good to know that when I do reach my final weight, that I can maintain it without counting calories.
