Saturday Morning Weigh In :

Posted by Susan on May 23, 2009


Wow ! I am so close I can almost taste it !!!!!!! I am a little more than 2 pounds away from my goal weight !!!!! A part of me is estatic, another part of me is shocked, and still another part of me is scared to death of the hit or miss challenge of maintaining this weight loss long term !

I was hoping that I would be at goal wieght by my 2nd Wedding Anniversary , the first week of June. We are off that week and it would be nice to be in maintainance mode by then. I thought it was a long shot, but now I am not so sure ……. it may be a possibility. I guess we shall see.

I added extra exercise to my life the past few weeks in the form of both SS and HIIT. I do some form of HIIT every day , either on the spin bike or the treadmill for 30 min. I also added extra SS cardio on Saturday mornings and Hiking on Sundays. It seems to be helping the scale move toward my goal.

I also added some extra calories to my diet . That is the biggest fear I have about maintaining. Adding calories ! I have a really strong “diet” mind set and now I have to relax it a bit ( not too much though! ) . I know that as long as I keep working out I will be able to eat more, but the thought of adding calories is scarey. I read somewhere to add 200 calories every 2 weeks. I am supposed to need a little over 2000 calories to maintain 140 lbs. that seems like a lot but if you think about it it really isn’t , I guess. I am active and plan to keep up the activity indefinately . I have that ingrained in my head right now! Keeping up the wokouts is the price I have to pay to keep the weight off. One hour a day , that’s all. Everything in life comes with a price , and working out is my price. That’s all there is to it ! Here are my stats for this week :

Weight : 142.6 ( 2.4 lb. Loss )

Fat % : 30.7 (1. Loss )

BMI : 21.2 (o.4 Loss )

    WOOHOOO You’re so close. Tastes good doesn’t it!!! The maintenance part is tough, no way to sugar coat it, but just don’t ever give up. Keep playing around until you find your balance.

    That is awesome. I like the way you regard the exercise. It is the price and it becomes easier to pay it when you do it as part of your every day. You are very inspiring!!
