It's only been just under 2 years, but it feels like I've been losing weight forever. I know that I'm technically still overweight at 5'2" and 148lb, but having lost 141lb I've decided to take a break from actually losing weight and attempt maintenance (with maybe a tiny bit of recomping) for the rest of the year and then reassessing in the new year.
But I'm struggling to eat enough so I don't continue to lose, I know I'm extremely active, which means that I need to eat a lot to maintain, but even with eating an average of 3000+Calories a day I've lost another 1.5lb over the last 2 weeks. I don't want to reduce my activity, I enjoy what I do and it's my thing (I have Aspergers and exercise classes/running/lifting help with my anxiety) and I'm struggling to eat any more, (90% veggie with a little fish). I do try and add in as many healthy Calories as I can, so will add nuts and hemp powder to my smoothies, make my own energy balls with nuts, seeds, dates, have dressings made with olive oil etc. But some days it feels like the only way to pack the Calories in would be to go back to the unhealthy way of eating I used to have, sure I could eat those Calories if I just chowed down on a huge bar of chocolate. (I don't log everything I eat atm, because the list would just get ridiculously long with the handful of nuts here, bit of fruit there, and so on)
Anyway, my question is, will there come a point where everything equalises, when I'll have dropped enough weight and hopefully kept enough muscle, that I will need fewer Calories and so will stop losing weight?
