I lost about 110 five years ago. After 2 years of weight loss, it finally happened. I was in the home stretch and I had Swine flu and dropped to my goal weight ( last 30 lbs) due to being too ill to feed myself or eat for nearly a month. While I have managed to keep the weight I lost properly (pre-illness) off, I have had ZERO success in keeping that last 30 lbs off.... Its driving me crazy!!! I go up and down about ten lbs regularly...20-25 lbs annually. So yes I break even.. but I cant seem to break out of the last 30 lbs.
Ultimately I just want to get to a place where my weight stops fluctuating so severely I have to replace my clothes. at 5'3 .. 30lbs is quite significant on my small frame.
I know I have issues with food and these are dramatically worsened when I overeat carbs... if I do...im starving all the time. I dont have a sweet tooth and love to cook so veggies and I very close friends. My problem is portions.. I like to eat.. a lot and frequently. I lack self discipline and am often frustrated...rebelling with food. Odd but true.
SO friends.. after regaining the 10 lbs I had lost before the holidays.. I say to you here. This IS the last time I am at this weight. Dear 30 lbs this year this year I am done with you once and for all.
All no/low carb input welcome. As a carb addict I have learned that carbs in the morning are the only time I can really have them where they dont corrupt my whole day. The joys of addiction.
I sweat to you quitting smoking was FAR easier than this.
