performance: gaining 0.4 lb a week

mid twenty year old artist with a sedentary lifestyle. I play a lot of video games, tabletops, and I read a lot. I'm vegan for my health, and to support my husband. I want to be skinny and pretty like the girls in magazines, but I also want to be healthy and wholesome. Wish me luck? I've dealt with eating disorder in the past, and I am very proud to say that it's in the past. Everything is easier now than it was then. I love my life, and hope to spread good vibes here on Fatsecret. Add me! I want to read your journals!

Emotional eaters - and resulting yo-yo weight?
I am such an emotional eater and it's totally premeditated, too. If something upsetting happens the first thing I think is, lets get the oven going and make some mac n cheese, or cake, or pie.

To OP: that's a pretty long journey but you've already got a good start. Hope that you found some insight form this thread, there are a lot of more well versed people on the subject, I now see.

Sk1nnyfuture, when you say brushing your body do you mean exfoliating (like a sugar and olive oil scrub) or do you mean literally brushing with a hair brush type thing?

To everyone else, I'm sorry that I was naive and my initial response was sort of lame. I think toning will help a little bit, though!

I want to say that toning will help to get rid of it but I don't know for sure.

so far good
Hey, good luck with your diet and congratulations on that 3 pounds! I think those first initial pounds of water weight are really fun to monitor because they come off so quickly and can super charge your enthusiasm for the long run. Best advice I can give you for the junk food cravings is not to go hungry. Eat low calorie high nutrient food until you're super full (For instance, I can eat a whole head of lettuce with other veggies for lunch sometimes. I'm weird). and eat often. When I'm full and feeling comfortable I don't have those cravings for crisps and snacks (oh boy do I love them, so this is a huge statement for me!)

Good luck, hope the rest of your day goes well!

Long Term Maintenance is Futile?
Hello Forum, I have a question that has been on my mind recently. A few weeks ago I was perusing the internet and I found a body acceptance blog that seemed to have a lot of good insight about body image and body acceptance. For the most part I had no problems with the writing, however they hit one of my insecurities when I read an article about how weight loss is almost always temporary and inevitably gained back in the long term. They cited many studies about how no matter how much a person lost, ten years later they would be back at their starting weight or higher. Here is the website, link to the specific article:

My question is to the validity of these statements, is this true for all? I've worked very hard to lose weight, and I plan to maintain a healthy lifestyle and comfortable weight long term.. How do you guys feel about this article, in general? I can't put my finger on why exactly it bothered me...
