I am now 41 years old and have been on SP since September 2013.
My all time high weight was 205 pounds (93 kilo) at 5 ft 8 (173 cm). I have weight this much a couple of times, decided to lose 50 pounds with a diet, would succeed and gained it all back.
The last time I hit my all time high (April 2013) I was just so tired of it all, I decided to make more permanent changes.

I am now 41 years old and have been on SP since September 2013.
My all time high weight was 205 pounds (93 kilo) at 5 ft 8 (173 cm). I have weight this much a couple of times, decided to lose 50 pounds with a diet, would succeed and gained it all back.
The last time I hit my all time high (April 2013) I was just so tired of it all, I decided to make more permanent changes.

So I made some permanent changes gradually. I started keeping track of what I ate, focussed on and learned about eating healthy and started to do more sponteneous exercise and also planned exercise.

This lead again to a 50 pound (23 kilo) weight loss, feeling fit and happy with myself. I have trained for a half marathon and then a whole marathon, which made it easier to keep the weight off.

However, at some point exercise became a solution for eating too much fat, sugar and calories in general, again.
I have been yo-yo-ing again since May 2014 currently between 180 and 190 lbs.

But even though I am still yo-yo-ing, it is not as bad as it was in the past, and I know the solution for me is tracking food, and staying within calorie range.

So that is what I am doing again not thinking too much about all the weight I lost before that I now have to lose again...

For 2016 I would like to get back to a healthy BMI again, and then really work on just maintaining that, even though that might be more than my final goal weight.
