Week 210

1.4lb loss!

Probably a bigger loss than I was expecting, but then last week was a bigger gain than I was expecting, so this helps even it out. I guess all the weeping helped...

Something I forgot to mention last week in my despair at that weight gain, is it's 4 years since we began the healthy eating approach to life.

At my lightest, about 18 months ago, I was down to 172.2lbs - about 103lbs less than my original starting weight.

Since then I've regained about 17lbs.

It feels like it's been a long time since I managed several consecutive weeks of being on track.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 13st 7.4lb - 189.4lbs
Body fat: 25.9%
Total Weight Loss: 85.6lbs

It is an ongoing committment to be sure, but one that is worth it. You're doing a great job because you don't fold on the good week or the bad.

You're at the point in time where the key to your success if figuring out how to maintain. It sucks losing the same weight over and over again. Don't fall for the CREEEEEEEPS....

Perhaps you need a tuneup or a shakeup? I know I need to mix it up now and then just to keep myself interested. I just did a tuneup to my food intake and did a shakeup to the workout routine. It helps.

Finding the balance for sticking is the whole thing.

Congrats on the down swing though. :)

Nice loss, mate!

I won't presume to think I could offer advice, because I'm no where close to maintenance, and you've already been there for 18 months!

So, do what you need to do, mate. :)

Thanks for all your comments and encouragements.

The thing is I know what needs to be done.

My approach has always been that the idea is to focus on eating healthily - the weight loss is then just a natural side effect of that.

The converse is also true - the weight gain is a natural side effect of straying off track too frequently.

The battle is not with the food, the plan or the balance, it's with my own state of mind.

And always has been

You will lose it again. Every gain and loss teaches us a new lesson.
