Speaking of goals, I'm adjusting my final goal weight from 165 down to 155. At 5'8" I feel that it a totally respectable weight and would put me into about a size 8/10. SSW is 140 which is what I weighed when I got married but after 5 babies and two adoptions, a herniated disc, and a shattered knew, that may be a bit of a reach. But I like carrying the idea around with me. :-)
I feel pretty lucky in that I have stabilized in P3 fairly well this round. I've had one big gain day (LIW +1.8) but that was when I really was pushing the limits on what I could eat. Changed back to my lower carb count and it went down straight away. You want to hear something STRANGE? I'm actually looking forward to P2 eating again. It was so simple and easy to get to 500 calories. Not nearly as much strategic planning with meals! And to be totally honest, while I love eating all these (healthy) fatty foods, I still have a nagging little voice in my head telling me that it couldn't possibly be healthy for me. I know intellectually it is okay but after a lifetime of hearing fat is a no-no, it's hard to defeat that little demon. I'm gonna set up an appointment with my P.A. in the week or two just to have blood work done so I can see the numbers for myself.
Did I ever mention that I do a lot of research in my job and simply ADORE statistics? I am WAY STRANGE that sense!!! Thus the reason why I love FatSecret.com so much. Those numbers talk to me in so many ways and tell me a story that regular words just can't!
