Back to that weigh in, I knew not much had changed. By now I know my body pretty well & I can tell when I am up & when I am down. I've maintained a steady 160-165lbs for a year now give or take a few pounds up or down & while that may seem like a large number for a gal who is 5'3" - let us not forget where she started at:
I think this would be at my heaviest - May of 2008 at home in ND. This is well above my 2009 documented high weight of 282lbs, if I had to guess I was pushing all of 290-295lbs & I had no idea.
While I know that loosing 120 lbs (I don't count what I don't know over the 282lbs from my pre loosing weight physical) is a major accomplishment, I also know that I can do more - I can tell from my body that there is more to go. While I feel great in every marker of health I still fall into the overweight category. Who stops at overweight? Not this Type A lady, that's for sure.
Weight loss transition photos - Oct of 2009 - Oct of 2010. Starting weight 252lbs ending weight 165lbs. I lost approx 87lbs in 12 months.
So, how am I going to do this? I lost the majority of the weight loss by following a food plan, counting calories & working out with a trainer as well as on my own. I am going back to counting calories & will be sticking to 1200-1300 calories daily but am giving myself the option to go up to 1500 calories if an event comes up. I am going to sneak in a few extra cardio sessions a week in the evening & I am going to try to get at least 5000 steps a day on my pedometer. Hopefully by the end of November I will be in those 150's & if not I will keep
