Lizzie983's Journal, 20 March 2013

I am on mantainance from today on!
I'll try to keep the weight below 56kg, and above 53kg.
My aim, from now on, is to become more muscular and stay fit.
I want to go on swimming once a week, going climbing every other week, walking every day for 30 minutes. Springtime is in the air, I would like to walk longer on sunny or warm days, add a weekly squat session to tone the lower parts of the body.
Emotional eating is gone, no raptuses anymore since quite a long time. I am not regularly calorie counting. Sometimes I do, especially on "indulgence meals" to have an idea about how many calories this meals can bring, in order not to schedule them too often.
I am trying to eat as clean as possible, allowing myself some cookies or cake from time to time. I am trying to avoid junk food and alcohol.
On May 2011 my weight was 68kg, today 56. I have lost 12kg (about 25lbs) since then. I had developed bad eating habits back then, by eating all time during the afternoon and the evening. Eating was my only satosfactory activity, since I was in the middle of a divorce, living far away from my family, fwe months after having lost my mum.
My life is different now. I am a happy person :) I started enjoying working out, practicing new sports, involving friends and having fun with them.
I reduced the amount of sweets I eat both on a daily and weekly basis. I trained myself (through the low sugar diet) to like sugary food less and less. I tried to improve my life and be a happier me, in order not to need food as a regular support. I am proud of what I achieved. And I thank all the buddies and fatsecret users for every supporting comment and message. I shared my emotions here, and you all took care of me, by encouraging me and make me feel I was not alone. It's a unique community and it shows us that somewhere in the world there are other buddies struggling exactly as we are, and ready to support us.
A big hug to all of you!! <3

Life is good!!

Nice! Congratulations! Of course, be aware that building muscles just might weigh you down some. If you start doing some serious muscle building, you gotta expect weight (but not fat) gain. Enjoy the next phase of the journey.

So glad things are good for you now, Lizzie. Well done. And good luck in maintenance (I'm sure you won't need it.)

Congradulations! Your journal read like a little Pep Talk! Getting strong is my ultimate goal (after having a mother 95 pounds and can't open doors or do much of anything else from just being weak.) Strong is good! You got it together!

Hi Keld! No, I don't want to build seriously muscle, just to tone the ones I got :) I tend to eat lots of protein, so as soon as I regularly practice sports, I develop muscles. Weight lifting would make me look like a man! it's not good for me!! :)
