Re: dietttttttting

Congratulations Maura on a year well spent. I lost 20 also and I know how it feels. If you want to slow or stop your loss then you want to add more calories <don't cut back your exercise; it's good for you.> A good way is to give in to the weekend urges for one day each week and eat what you want. Lose the guilt and assess what a once-a-week pig out does to/for you. If it slows you to a pound a month loss or even STOPS it then assess how you want to continue.
A weekly gorge often gets the metabolism to forget it's starving and can therefore be a GOOD thing.
Keep up the good work.

Re: dietttttttting

Congrats on your weight loss!After you lose a bot, there is always that urge to keep losing- yopu have to fight that! You are in a completely healthy weight for your height, and even if it isnt all muscle, as you say, you are at a thin weight! Try not to lose much more, or better yet no more!

Since you excersise much more compared to me (same height as you), you should prolly eat a lil more than me, but you'll have to try for yourself. I eat around 2300 Calories a day, with 3 meals (600 Cals) and 2 snacks (one 300, one 250). When you increase your intake though, dont just jump to 2300ish. Go up over a short period of time, in intervals (ie/ add 500 Cals every 2-3 days). Hope this helps!
