I looked at my Bio and I realize the last time was years ago! I'm 60 F now and I have been on & off this site and on/off my TRUE WOE.
I have had issues with my weight for as long as I can remember. I was a typical "yo-yo" dieter in my teens & 20s then 30s weight was 'sort of' stable, 40s & 50s up & down. last few years it has been up. My highest weight was 198# I feel best at 138-142# range. I've tried other WOEs but I feel low carb/Atkins works best for me and I don't feel deprived. I feel good now and have friends that tell me not to loose or don't loose too much BUT I really feel so much better at less and I really need to get the weight off for ME. A little more about me, I was caregiver for both my dad (Parkinson's) and mom (Alzheimer's), but in 2013 my dad passed and now I just have my mom. She is a BIG handful plus I have a full-time stressful job and life besides. Even though I have had difficult times I feel there were things I had to go through and feel to be where I am now and it all worked for the best. I am moving on with my life and doing the best I can for me! I heard something that stuck with me, 'failure is an event, it is not who you are' and 'if one dream falls through, dream another one, that is not the end of your story'
My weight loss may be slow, but it is MINE. Years ago that would discourage me, but not now. Even if it creeps down, then up, then down. It is me and I am being true to me! My goal is to reach my 138# weight before my next BDay (March) and to KEEP it off :-) Be True to you :-)

so what does everyone think of this.................
I also weigh daily, but wish I could hold off for weekly. Maybe I'll start just recording my weekly weight, but gee what if the day before my weekly weigh-in I'm a pound less? Oh my it is an obsession with me also.
