When I started losing weight in 2010 I got down to the low 160s. I was happy with this weight for the most part, and was able to maintain it without too much trouble for many years. Then along came Christmas 2014, and for some reason I over ate far more than I realized, and within weeks had shot up 10lbs. That’s where I’ve been sitting for almost 18 months. Recently, I’ve also packed on an additional 3-5lbs that I am fighting to get rid of.
So I’m back to counting calories again, and being careful about what I eat. It’s always nice to see the first 3-4lbs drop within a day of dieting, but I know I’ve probably got a good two months ahead of me to get back to where I want to be. If things are going well, I’ll try to keep going and stabilize in the upper 150s, but I’m not going to hold my breath that I’ll be able to get there.
I’ve also decided to add in some step tracking, so for the past couple days I’ve been wearing a watch that can track activity. I want to make sure that I’m walking every day as much as I think I am. I worry that in my desk job I might not be getting up and moving around as much as my body would like. Not sure if I’ll keep up the daily activity tracking, but for now it could provide some useful metrics.
Been writing for a bit here, so it’s probably time get up and move 😉
