performance: gaining 0.6 lb a week

I'm a 42 yo mother of two girls ages 12 and 9. I lost 53 pounds from April 2009 through February 2010 by doing a combination of Weight Watchers and exercising (I started cycling after not being on a bike for 20 years!) I got down to about 116 pounds which was very difficult to hold, and ended up maintaining my weight at around 134 for about a year.

Then I hit a hiccup. My 11-year-old daughter got cancer last August. She had a liver transplant in February 2013 and is now cancer free and recovering. Meanwhile. I got a slow start to cycling this season, but I'm now riding 2 - 3 times per week and going to the gym twice a week. I feel heavy and slow, but I love my bike and I am grateful to have the time to ride it again. I'm grateful for every moment with my daughter too - she's six months post transplant as of 8/5 and doing well.

Thinking Out Loud - Your Thoughts?
I lost over 50 lbs on WW over the course of 11 months and hit goal in February 2010, then went below goal while still on the plan. I switched to calorie counting around June and have stuck with about 1800-2000 calories per day, but have slowly gained about 5 lbs back. I exercise 5-6 days/week. I suspect I was eating a lot fewer calories on WW (I was down to 116 at 18 pts/day and it was getting a little ridiculous). Still, gaining these few pounds back is disappointing. It's good to see that people feel the WW diet can be too restrictive with calories.

I agree that if you want to maintain, it's really important not to eat too little because it's just not sustainable in the long run. I'm now playing around with the total number of calories and really trying to stick with a few core WW rules that I kind of abandoned when I stopped subscribing - drink lots of water, eat lots of fruits/veggies and minimize overly processed foods. Smile

Good luck to you!
