Will it Always be Like This?

Thursday, May 07, 2009

I had always assumed that after I lost the weight I need to lose, the calories I could eat would go up quite a bit as long as I still exercise the same. I'm beginning to wonder about that. It's such a struggle to lose each pound, I suspect that if I blink the pounds will want to creep back. I guess I'll just have to figure it out when the time comes.

    I think keeping your scale as a guide will keep the pounds in check. If you start to gain...cut the calories back :)

    Like Vicky said - you are eating less than body requirements now so you will lose weight. Maintenance lets you eat more, but not to the extent taht you gain again. You might also be exercising now more than you will need to to maintain, but isn't it a great feeling to be getting into better condition?

    In a word, no, it wont always be like this. You will be able to increase your calories once you reach your goal weight, because you will be trying to maintain, not lose. And you will have grealty improved your health and fitness, be exercising more and be able to eat more without worrying. You probably wont ever eat how you did before, because lets face it, thats how we all gained weight in the first place. But you will be able to have treats, go out for tasty meals and have fun. It will start to come naturally and when you get there, sparkpeople and your sparkfriends will support you just as much to stay there. Life is a journey and it doesn't stop when we reach our goal weight, but sparkpeople's program will guide you through that stage too. Good luck with the bootcamp-I haven't done any of the workouts yet, but I have been doing other exercise. How are you doing with it?
