My little experiment...

So I hit my goal weight in July 2012. It took me 6 months to lose 50 lbs...eating healthy, counting calories, exercising. Then it really got hard to maintain. I struggled on and off with my eating. My workouts stayed awesome though so that's good :)
Anyway, after all the struggling, I decided to not think about calories for a while...knowing I'd gain some weight back...but I wanted to see what would happen if I just exercised but didn't worry too much about calories. Ok so it's been about 2ish months...I gained about 14 lbs right away but have been holding steady now for about a month!! I'm actually ok with this! I don't look as small but I'm still ok...technically I'm back in the "overweight" zone according to my BMI but whatever. I'm a size 10ish pants, large sweatpants (roomier than medium) and medium shirt. I'm happy :)
And my workouts are kickass!!! Running, lifting...my faves!!! I've done 2 halfs...training for another next month. Just ran a relay race too. I'm so happy :)

I'm glad you aren't stressing over calories anymore, I never calorie count. All that adding up drives me nuts! I think the biggest thing is to be happy with you and you feel good.


I'm super happy for you.
