HUNGER KICKED IN almost immediately. I'm not sure if it was a "bored" kind of hunger, a "hungry" kind of hunger, or maybe just a "wanna be comforted" kind. Whatever it was, came unrelenting and without rest. Since then I've been waging a good fight to try and not gain (or lose) that progress!
In a nutshell, I lost 50 lbs about 7 years ago. Since then, I slowly gained back maybe 15 of those pounds. For my trip to Hawaii I lost 20 lbs. Roughly, I was 176 at my highest recorded non pregnant weight. When I got home from Hawaii I was weighing in at 118-120 lbs. Thetas almost 60 lbs I'm not - THANK GOD. But how do I keep that off?!?!
I tried writing down calories for a week and HATED it. Even more dismal, I was coming in around 2000 a day, TRYING. UGH. Tonight I read an article about "intuitive eating" which I'm going to give a go....
More goals include upcoming Bloomsday, A mud run with friends, and keeping up on Zumba and weight lifting. Above here is a pic from Mon at the Rec Center, which I try to get my kids to on a semi-monthly basis. It breaks up the monotony of winter. Desperately hoping to pull out some unforeseen motivation from thin air ;-)
