Well I have managed to maintain my goal weight of 62ish kg for a good few weeks now without peeking back into the 63s so I thought I would start my maintenance thread. FINALLY. After so long and changing my goal so many times! (It started at 69kg.. go figure!)
I'm 177cm, and I started at 79kg and a size 14, with about 30% body fat.
Now I'm 62kg and a size 8. My body fat is somewhere around 18%. I have posted a pic in before and after pics.
The main purpose of this thread is to track my journey as I learn to love my body. My weight loss journey hasn't been smooth sailing and it has become apparent that I have several issues that I am yet to shake. I want to work hard on them because I want to live my life to the fullest, and to do so I need to learn to love and accept myself entirely as I am. Even now, my issues are telling me to keep losing weight - how good would 61kg feel? - other girls your height are in the 50s - blah blah blah, so this is me fighting back, saying enough is enough and taking control!!
I have been reading some holistic health books for women and I feel ready to face my demons, work out my issues while at the same time maintaining this fit and fabulous body I have worked so hard for!
Wish me luck!!
PS. I know a weight loss forum may not be the place that I belong but I have been coming on here for years so I hope nobody minds!
