The closer I get to goal the more I think I am not in a rush to get to my goal weight! I mean firstly....I dont even really know what my goal weight will be!! I have always had the figure of 76 kilos being the goal weight (12.9 kilos away)....76 kilos is the top of my healthy weight range....and i think as i have said in the past i would like to get at least a couple of kilos below that. In a perfect world i would like to end up a size 12 on the top and bottom. But realistically with the excess skin on my thighs i dont think that is a realistic goal...and think size 14 may be where i need to settle...altho on the top half i think i can get to a size 12. As to what number that is on the scales who knows....its basically still a drop of 2 dress sizes....and to be honest i have been a size 16 on the top half for a longggggggggggggggggggg time now! The bottom half has been slowly shrinking....and i have lost some centimetres of the top half...but not enough to get into a size 14 top.
Which then takes me to what will happen once at the mysterious goal weight. Part of me really isnt in a rush to get to goal...mostly cos i do have concerns with how i will cope. Its not the eating....i think once im at whatever weight i can figure out what calories i need to sit at....and i think i would prolly always weigh daily to monitor the numbers arent going up. My main concern would be the gym. I personally have never understood why slim girls go to the gym.....im sure for a lot they just enjoy it....being that im NOT a exercise lover ill never fit into that category...lol...and up until now ive been fine with attending the gym regularly....cos i believe ive had a very measurable goal or "reward" each week....ultimately mostly...if i exercise and eat right....ill be rewarded with some drop on the scales....so its all been very measurable....i know once at goal....ill still need to go....if for no other reason then to hopefully help with the excess skin....but thats not really a measurable thing....i find it hard on a week to week basis to see the difference in my body shape....its only really when i look at photos months apart i can notice some difference...so that will be my main concern.
Jaimee said to me once recently (look Jaimee you got a mention!!! lol) but she said once....once you get to goal....i know you will set another goal (she set the example of me going overseas to fix peoples eyes LOL).... i prolly will NEED to set some kind of goal....just so i will keep the gym up...I do realise theres lots of other benefits to the gym....including my overall general health....but lol it is a concern ALREADY.
