My maintenance weight set point seems to have gone down a pound.
I'm still "overweight" though.
Yup. I've got my BMI down to 25.1, which counts as overweight, whereas 24.99 is considered "healthy". Think about it. If I could lose one more pound, I'd magically be a healthy weight, instead of this nasty overweight state that I currently exist in. (Um, that statement was loaded pretty thick with irony, just in case I had to tell you that.)
I'm ecstatic that I managed, somehow, to go down a pound, after 34 weeks of maintaining my weight.
I just read an article that says I could lose more body fat if I would cut out eating carbs in the evening. Which, okay, good to know. But I can stay the way I am (which I am happy with) and eat carbs in the evening if I feel like, or not if I don't. So, the thing is, I am not a body worshipper, and I believe a healthy lifestyle has to be sustainable. So I am not going to do that "no carbs in the evening" thing.
I recently rediscovered pasta. It's been on my Not-Worth-It list for a year and a half now. But a cardboard box of frozen mac-and-cheese (mmm, comfort food) can be had for 240 calories. If I then re-plate it, and jazz it up with, say, spinach (iron!) or broccoli (vitamin C!) and sprinkle a little shaved parmesan on top, I have a wonderful meal of pasta for lunch. I know it's processed, not "clean", but it actually works for me. I do have to make sure I get a lot of protein from other sources during the day, like yogurt, protein bars, or a smoothie, but still.
I can have macaroni and cheese and maintain my weight too. (Or lose a pound, even.) And that makes me smile.
