I've been relatively heavy all my life and always went about weight loss in a negative way. I figure it's about time I take a positive and active role in losing and maintaining a healthy weight.

I do tend to fluctuate on my eating habits and splurge every now and then (I tend to have one day a week where I'll kinda stuff my face, haha), but I don't see any harm in enjoying yourself so long as it's in moderation. My exercising habits also tend to fluctuate as I enjoy changing things up a lot to keep it interesting. Repetition is a bore!

Is this normal?
I'm in that same boat. I haven't been in a size 5 since... man, maybe elementary school? I've always been somewhere between a size 8 and 12. It's weird to know that, right now, I wasn't even near this size when I was in high school and I was still larger than this even when I was in junior high. I think it's a fairly common thing for people to go through stuff like this, where they're reaching a weight they haven't been at in quite some time or can't even remember ever having been. It sure is a nice feeling, though!
