Do we have to do anything different for the last 10 pounds? I started my diet in June of last year and am 40 pounds down with 10 to go. This week I have watched my weight go up 2 lbs and then back down by 2 lbs. Just wondering do I continue doing what I have been doing?

the key principle is always the same, you just need to adjust your exercise and calorie budget since your resting metabolism is likely to have gone down due to weight loss therefore it will be harder to create a calorie deficit.

Congratualtions on your loss so far! Simply keep doing what you're doing. Don't make drastic changes. Maybe re-assess if your calorie intake is good? You should be about 500-1000 less than you burn on a daily basis. I went from 360 lbs to 170 lbs. Along the way I lowered my calorie intake gradually, and started exercising as I found I had more energy. That's essentially all I did. I will say that the last 1 or 2 lbs for me were kinda stubborn, but simply by keeping doing what I had been doing got me there. So keep it up!

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Possible return.
Attempt? Seems like you are back - I just started back 3 weeks ago after falling "off the wagon" for quite a while... so you've got company on your return! Best wishes on your quest 😃
