Still trying...

I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople user for years, and for a while, I felt like "I finally got it!" I started exercising regularly in Spring of 2012. I slowly started adjusting my eating habits and increased my workouts. In Fall 2012, I started seeing some serious results.

I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople user for years, and for a while, I felt like "I finally got it!" I started exercising regularly in Spring of 2012. I slowly started adjusting my eating habits and increased my workouts. In Fall 2012, I started seeing some serious results. I lost weight, but because I was strength training, I looked better than ever. From January 2013 until June 2013, I was absolutely rocking the healthy lifestyle. I ate healthy. I worked out twice a week (minimum). I had lost some weight, getting down to about 160 pounds, with a good bit of muscle. By my sister's wedding in June, I was feeling pretty confident. I even felt comfortable enough to wear a bikini at a pre-wedding pool party. But then, life got sort of busy... my workout buddy got engaged and stopped finding the time to work out and before too long, I just stopped going altogether. I still made healthy choices, most of the time. But I wasn't exercising anymore. And it showed. I started putting on some weight again (and not muscle, this time). My weight crept up to about 170. Then I met my boyfriend... we enjoyed going out together, introducing each other to our favorite restaurants (and their usually high calorie specialties), and drinking beer/wine. The unfortunate thing is that meant I put on a little more weight. Now I weigh in at about 180 pounds. And I am not happy about that. I need to get back into gear, so here I am.

Thanks for the blog comment. IF is intermittent fasting. I've been eating in the window of 12-8 most days (or at least trying to). It took a lot of trial and error to make it work for me and to transition into bigger meals in a smaller time frame. It has helped me reduce night time snack considerably.

Thanks girl! I am excited to be getting close to that BMI range. Kinda weird, the specialist I saw today for my stomach was wondering if I was losing or maintaining weight. I know I blushed! :P I wasn't sure how to answer that! I've been mostly holding it steady and slow loss the past few months, so I told him that. I think he was mainly concerned that my stomach wasn't interfering with my weight. I didn't tell him, I actually would like to lose a few more pounds...like 10! But thats for personal--healthy reasons. :D Ah well, hope you have a lovely evening! Never doubt this: You are one of a kind. Always--beautiful, Of infinite worth and someone sure special! Keep on keeping on spark girl! emoticon
