I’m considering going into maintenance mode for a bit. Allowing myself a bit more in the calories and fat department simply for the month of december while all these holiday cookies come out. It would be a great trial run for when I achieve my goal weight. I can’t believe I am just 16 pounds away! So crazy. Sheesh, if I had of known I could do this so easily and eat such nummy things I would have done this years ago. Such a silly hobbit I am. I don’t expect to see much weight loss this month, mostly I’m working on avoiding weight gain.
I can’t believe it’s been almost a year of eating this way. It certainly has paid off. Weight has been lost…granted, I find I get cold easier. I lost my cold protective layer! I knew I must have been keeping it around for something…thankfully I can replace it now with really cute sweaters and such. I have definitely found I am happier and healthier, I am definitely more willing to go out there and actually do stuff rather than slug around the house. Not that slugging around the house is bad, everyone needs to slug once and awhile. It’s good for your inner mollusc…admit it, we all have some mollusc tendencies. Have I talked about slugs enough yet?
Anyways, yes the recipes will continue. Afterall this is maintenance, not a hog wild omnomnom fest. I would really hate to undo all this hard work. Basically I am giving myself a little more but still watching. Let’s see how that works out shall we? Then I will hop back onto the weight loss train refreshed in the new year. I figure a year of working this hard deserves a small break. I really hope I can maintain without gain.
