I made it! :) I am now under 100 kgs.

See if you can figure out which is the "before" and which is the "after" picture. :)

When I started my weight loss journey, I weighed 155 kgs - and I started with setting a goal of losing 100 us lbs, which equals 45 kgs. So I made it my mission lose weight until I would reach 110 kgs. That was the most I could possibly visualize myself losing at the time.

Now, I am at UNDER 100 kgs - at 99.6 kgs to be precise. I still can't believe that I keep losing weight, but I love that it is so.

I realize, that I am NOT done. I realize that I still should lose about 20 more kgs before I call it quits. But today is such a land mark for me, and I feel that I am very comfortable with who I am now. So I feel like changing up things a little bit for myself.

I have been going 600 calories lower than my FatSecret RDI all the way, and that clearly has made things go fast for me. As a matter of fact to fast that I mentally have trouble keeping up. I don't recognize that guy in the mirror, and I look and my clothes puzzled believing that I will not be able to fit it. I try it on, and it fits perfect. This is such a weird thing for me.

So I decided to slooooowly starting working my way towards maintenance phase. What I will do it recalculate my FatSecret recommended RDI, with my activity level set to sedentary. This gives me an RDI of 2200, where I right now eat 1700 calories.

This should keep me still losing weight, nice and slow, and give me time to adjust. I am no longer in a hurry to do things. I would welcome the extra 500 calories per day, but most days I will probably not need them. I just want to celebrate this my letting loose just a tiny bit.

I will of course weigh myself daily as I have always done through this, and keep an eye on what's going on. If it doesn't work out in a week or two, I will be back on 1700. I feel that I need to start working my way back to "real" life without in any way letting go of what gave me the success and what brought me here. I will never, ever go back to the way I used to eat, and I will never, ever go back to looking like I did. I see my before pictures and just get sad. I can't believe I was THAT fat. I can't believe I let it come to THAT. I am proud to say that I got rid of it all (almost!) to a point where I am actually happy and comfortable with myself, and I am proud of what I've accomplished.

There. Enough bragging for today. I am just so damn proud. Trust me, if I can do this, then ANYONE can. I got the back bone of a jellyfish, and is no different or stronger than anyone else here. Life is good!
