♥ Tanya's Maintenance Diary - Year 4! ♥
Sooooo, today is the day I have been maintaining my weight loss for 3 whole years!!!
Like i've said in my previous diaries, its a struggle most of the time but the struggle is worth it. I never want to go back to how I was, ever. That fact alone keeps me going along with the fact that no-one believed me when I said I was going to lose the weight for good. It's a good job I believed in myself really :P I'm one of the unlucky ones that has to exercise in order to maintain, it's just a bonus that I really have found something I love; running, body step & body pump. In the last 3 years I have maintained the weight loss and in the past 18months I have ran 3 half marathons, 3 10ks and a 5k
I am struggling a bit at the minute to keep focus for more than a couple of days at a time but I know i'll get back into the swing of it. I forgot to weigh myself today as I was rushing around as I had an appointment to get to so will weigh next week.
Will be back later on to update food & run for the day.
Here's to year 4
Todays run was supposed to be a 5miler but cut it short as my feet were hurting. Another few runs and those new trainers arent guna know whats hit em lol I'm also skipping body pump but for a very good reason, off to see my niece!
Guna try going back to having a hot choc every evening to see if that helps with the chocolate craving. Can't go wrong for 20cals and its warming

Been awol as i've been stupid busy again.
Went out on sunday and monday I had the worst hangover you could ever, ever, EVER imagine!! It's weird cuz I rarely get hangovers. Trying to keep my food quite low carb at the minute and make breakfasts the carb meal, trying to stick to eggs & plenty of protein. I will weigh in on friday but its bound to be a gain ... I have another 3 nights out to go aswell, so I need to keep food really strict. Feel free to kick me up the behind if you see anything out of line!!! I need it right now!

Your pictures are fab, well done on maintaining you're doing an amazing job and are an inspiration x x
I wonder how come you had that hang over then .... apart from the obvious reason of course. Weren't you feeling a bit under the weather? If so maybe that had something to do with it. (But I might have made that up ) xx
Yep, yet again, ill.
I think this is all to do with my food. It's been ever since just before the bristol half marathon and thats when my food started to go a bit awol.
Weighed in today and its a gain of 1.75lbs. Making me 12st 4.75lbs. Heaviest i've been since 28th aug
I think getting down into the 10st bracket by christmas is well off the cards but getting back into the 11s is doable.
I need to focus on making my food choices superb and hopefuly the alcohol over the next 3weekends wont affect me too much. I am guna try go as low carb as possible but with phys 5days a week, and especially with running & step I find i'm so hungry lately after them.
I'd like to get to 11st 10lbs by christmas but that means losing 8.75lbs in 5weeks
We'll see how it goes I guess. I need to take the pressure off I reckon and concentrate on getting my food back on track first and look at signing up for another race. I have nothing to aim for right now!

Love the new diary! You've done so well!
Tanya I keep saying it but I really want to get into running - should I start on the roads or treadmill... I'd love to be able to complete some sort of run next year - like a 5k or 10k... I will be coming to u for tips x
Already spoken to you Sarah. Have you started now?
Weekend was a wash out again. Damn alcohol.
Really gotta knuckle down. Its the weekends I just go to pot! I've got my specials xmas do on the first and my dress is clingy, just like the one I wore on saturday. Need to lose some belly before then! Would be nice if I could drop the 4.75lbs but I cant see that happening
