performance: gaining 2.7 lb a week

[Startrekker: not a Star Trekkie; my name means 'star' and I walk lots].

Back on FatSecret to drop the 2 stone (28 lbs) I've regained over the last five months. Previously, I lost 8 stone between April 2013 and June 2014 (14 months), going from just under 300 lbs (20st) to 175 (12.7st). I managed to stay at 13 st for some six months after that. I'm 5'8", late 40s, and was slim and athletic when I was younger. I lost the previous weight without surgery or diet gimmicks -- just plenty of healthy food and exercise. I'm trying to do the same thing now.

Needing Support
To echo the excellent advice here already: surgery's not a solution - tracking, whole foods, fluids, exercise, etc is! It just takes determination, belief that it can be done, and a whole lotta patience - with the scale and with yourself. In the last 18 months, I've lost over 100 lbs and healthily, something I never thought was possible when I started. It CAN be done. There are loads of people on here to prove it and more than happy to support you, wherever possible. Feel free to look over my profile and history, and to buddy up, if I can help.
