Brief synopsis of my journey: I jumped around a lot in weight throughout my life. I'm a 5'6" female who has been anywhere between 120-250 lbs. I have mostly been on average anywhere between 135-155. Most recently, I went from about 240 to 125 in less than a year - from 2018 to 2019, I believe. I gained back a significant amount of weight in only a few months after some severe issues with binging. I had been eating too little for how much training I was doing for too long.
To the present, I've lost probably half of what I've gained. However, I went about this in a different way. I did not weigh myself and I did not track calories (just tracked portions based on previous tracking methods). I simply went by how my clothes were fitting. It has been a little over a month since I've started and I feel great. I started counting calories again about 2 weeks ago, but I haven't weighed myself. I'd estimate I'm probably between 135-142 lbs.
My question to you all is... I feel great as I am now and I'm pretty happy with how my clothes fit. I could definitely do some recomping, that's for sure but I have a good amount of muscle and I'm satisfied. However, something keeps telling me I should lose weight but I know I should begin maintenance. Is there a way I can successfully do this without weighing myself? I really don't want to become attached to a number again.
