I've been thinking about this for awhile now. You know how we all say "the weight comes on faster than it comes off?" Well, I really don't think we've thought that through.
I've lost 40 pounds since February. That's 8 months. I've never gained 40 pounds in 8 months, not even when I was pregnant. Sure, it's possible. But I would guess most of us don't gain more than 10-29 pounds in a year.
Has the weight fallen off? Nope. It's been hard work to lose 40 pounds. Hard, but so worth it! It has been steady. And really slow. It's an average of just over a pound a week. But I've been consistent. That's the key. When I've been up a few ounces, I remind myself that it is less than a pound and make sure I'm tracking my food again.
So what is my point? That we can all do this. Just find what works for you (for me it's weight watchers) and stick with it.
