I have totally lost weight here, which was not a goal at all. I think I eat a lot better here because I eat out a lot less than I did!
In NYC I ate most meals out, (NYC = GO, GO, GO!) and here we normally cook at home.
Eating out, even in nice places, is general less healthy, because they are focused much more on flavour rather then health. They tend to use a lot of salt and butter in NYC, unless it is a 'healthy' place! I did not go to 'healthy' places, unless sushi counts. I ate a lot of sushi in NYC. (It was cheap, fast, and yummy!) I also went out for Chinese, and Mexican, and Greek... All highly caloric.
I was thin in NYC, but now I am even thinner. I lost about 15 pounds in the first 6 months! And, I was already thin, so I thought I might be sick! But, I got checked out, and I was fine.
I would say that, for whatever reason, I have maybe put back on about 4 of it, in the last year. Actually, I totally know the 'reason' I have put 4 pounds on: I have developed a Haribo Tangtastics addiction.
I'm glad you are feeling good about your body! After all, feeling good is important, and health matters, it matters even more than size!!!
For the record, bigger people can be healthy too! Being 'thin' does not always mean fit, or healthy.
Health and happiness are so much more important that jean size!!!
