♥ Tanya's Maintenance Diary - Year 4! ♥

♥3 Years Maintaining♥
S: 19st6lb C: 11st6lb Loss: 8st0lb(41.18%)
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 :D

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 :D

Thanks guys.
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 :doh: ... 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!

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 :sigh:
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!

Not much to report today.
Ran. Set up my 74 year old grandma with an iPhone!!!! LOL and thats about it.
Decided to steam my veggies today, they tasted sooooo much better and it's the first time ive tried spring greens. They're ok.
Menus are guna look pretty much the same this week. Just a change to the meat I have for lunch. Guna trial not writing down the calories my runs burn cuz that makes me feel like I want to eat more cuz I burnt them off. I'm in that mindset at the minute so hopefully that will help with sticking to my calorie allowance.
