@rockstache Loving your new numbers! You are rocking it!
I've been MIA for a few weeks now - feels so weird! I hope to get back into checking here again regularly. Been busy lately with a lot of vacations to plan for. On top of my usual busy summer plans, a month ago, my mother tells me she is coming to visit me in November. We decided to add on a trip to DC and NYC for the both of us. A short while later, my childhood bestie (who lives on the other side of the globe) messages me saying she plans to visit me - she's hoping to come in 2 weeks! Then she asked to go to Disney World, so after some back and forth, I'm planning a weekend girls trip to WDW. To top off the craziness, DH and I had a few Southwest points left and just offered to take my FIL for a weekend in Atlanta this October. I feel like I am juggling so many balls in the air, its amazing I can keep them all up (I'm a super detailed researcher and planner - and yes, I do it all to myself lol!).
Back to weightloss - I went back into full weightloss mode 2 weeks ago when my bestie confirmed her trip. Was too lazy to calorie count though so decided to try just eyeballing things and being sensible. Plus I added back my 30 mins daily lunchtime walks.
I've gone up and down a little since then...but this morning, I'm a wee bit frustrated because in general, the scale is STILL NOT GOING DOWN! I've started starving myself a little in desperation - fruit for breakfast, a thin miso broth soup for lunch, and a veggie-based dinner. I'm sure there's still sneaky calories finding its way into me at various times UGH. I should go back to strict logging since it worked for me before - but now I only have a week before she arrives so there's not much point.
My plan is to keep my meals light for the next week, keep up with lunch walks every day, and see where I am next week. I'm not worrying about food after she gets here though. Good thing she's only here for about 12 days! I think I'll go back to counting cals and logging with My Fitness Pal after she leaves.
On the good side, I'm still about the same weight and I am happy that maintenance has been EASY. I've been in maintenance since June and it has gone really, really well. Also, I started biking to work (just a short 20+ mins each way) in July and 2 months later, I'm STILL riding daily. its such a short ride that I really don't lose many cals doing it though. Worth it to save gas and wear & tear though!
