I definitely gain and lose the same 3 lbs over and over. If I let it get to 10 on this short body, it would literally take me a year to lose it. Here’s how my dieting goes. I am up about 3 lbs because my son is on prednisone, and well I eat with him too much. Been trying to lose it all week, messed up Thursday finishing his waffle fries that he couldn’t finish. I couldn’t let them go to waste! Friday I was super good again. Weighed the same Saturday morning. Discouraged, I went to breakfast with him and ate cornflake crusted french toast with peaches and vanilla creme anglaise with three sausage patties. Lost a half pound. I give up trying to figure this out.

I started logging my food on Sunday (after I got home from my latest jaunt), and have lost 2 pounds since then. If I keep logging the food, I will take off the weight. So, I am going to be really serious and try to get it done.

*I always eat what I want to vacations!!!! I just have to behave once I get home!

I lost 6 pounds this week! Intermittent fasting really works but it’s quite a commitment. I do want to lose the weight I’ve gained recently though, so I really want to keep it up. Not sure how I managed to drift for so long that I added nearly 22lbs in a year.... that is extreme and a bit worrying. Hopefully I’ve come to my senses now. Low BMI is definitely associated with low recurrence risk. Got to keep reminding myself.

Way to lose Scotbird! I should try fasting to push me over the hump!

Ruth- the food journaling is what I should be doing to!

We were at the beach for a week with the grandkids. I didn't over eat while there. I prepared dinner at the condo every night. That's so much easier that trying to feed my girl and 4 of the grandkids. I did partake in the nightly ice cream shenanigans!

No gain no loss....I'll take it for now😜

good to hear that everyone is satisfied at their weekly weight check in. I took off the two pounds that landed on my butt while at the beach last week. So back to my spot on the scale. Five pounds over and my clothes could fit better if I dropped lbs. I'm going to follow your lead ScotBird- my teaching schedule this year means I don't have a break until 10:45 AM. I leave the house at 6:45. So I will eat one big meal at 11 AM and then wait til supper. Hopefully.

I've had some nice success with the following. Like ruthbru I started logging my food choices using the my plate app. I also started a new exercise program the Livestrong 8 week challenge that I've been following for 8 months (truthfully 9 months this week). I was 160+ lbs in nov 2018. I decided to make a long term goal but I'm way beyond my target date of 3 months. That said I have made it to 139 lbs since then. I have 4 lbs to go to meet my goal. I have found that the commitment to my goal has been my strength. It's taken twice as long and likely 3 times as long by the time I get there but I feel great. I do the 'stronger' workouts usually 3 or 4 days and work outs from a trainer friend for 1 or 2 of the other days. So yes only one rest day a week but you'd never know you were working out more than that. All the best every one

I am participating in a clinical trial that aims to recommend foods tailored to your individual response to food. In phase one, they found that even identical twins have different responses to foods. So I am eating their provided breakfast and sometimes provided lunch, and then testing foods of my own choice the rest of the day. I can’t wait to see my results and I hope it will help me decide once and for all how to eat for my health. My weight has stayed steady this week, and I was worried I would gain because I feel I am eating more than normal.

Good work, everyone. I like intermittent fasting. I think it is easier to maintain for me. it seems like when I ate breakfast early I was just hungry in two hours and wanting to eat all day. Molliefish, great accomplishment even if it took longer. A+ for sticking to it and not getting getting discouraged. Healthy habits are more important than just losing pounds.

That is very inspiring molliefish, I think the fact it takes quite a long time to lose weight can be good if it means that you permanently switch to healthier eating and exercise habits, gradually losing weight then sticking with the healthy ways. I stayed the same this week, and am still fasting intermittently, and exercising more. My goal is to lose 18 pounds by Christmas - about a pound every week. Then I’ll be back to where I was about a year ago! I just took my eye off the ball and put lots and lots of pounds on. My problem seems to be that when I get to a good weight I stop eating healthily and start putting it back on again, whilst tellin myself excuses about why it’s OK toneat too much (eg stressful time at work, deadline, vacation, injury, moving house etc). It’s so hard to stick with the discipline!
