Hi... I think I have probably the same story as many out there. When your young and foolish you don't exactly eat the way you should or take care of yourself... but here I am 36 years, and 2 kids later... I weigh 218 lbs.

Hi... I think I have probably the same story as many out there. When your young and foolish you don't exactly eat the way you should or take care of yourself... but here I am 36 years, and 2 kids later... I weigh 218 lbs. My Dr has recommended that I lose 118 lbs because I am 5ft 3in and I have a family history of heart disease and diabetes. When he said that my jaw hit the floor... I couldn't believe I was being told to do something that seemed so impossible. So I dieted, half heartedly exercised and lost about 10lbs... gained it back lost it again, gained it back... it goes on and on. I think when you view a task that seems impossible to finish you kind of think to yourself... I can't do that, so why try... meaning I never finished what I started... SO... I have a new game plan. I want to loose 18 lbs before the end of the year... YEP... I wanna look hot for my hubby on New Years Eve... so I am determined to get the first 18 lbs off and keep them off and then work on the next 18... I figure if I break it up I can celebrate each time I hit a goal!

Thanks for the blog comment!

It *is* confusing, isn't it?! You'd THINK keeping the weight off would be just doing the same things that helped you lose weight. And most weight loss programs tell you exactly that.

But the fact is that only about 5% of people actually manage to stay close to their goal weight in the long term, and up to 20% only manage to keep about 10% of their starting weight off, that means 80% gain it ALL back, or even add some.

So what the weight loss programs are telling us, the standard lines about "doing what you did to lose the weight" clearly isn't working. And there is research out there showing it. There are subtle differences, and they are important. Both in the psychology and in the mechanics of the process.

So, unfortunately maintenance is a whole other can of worms, and in my experience much harder than losing weight. You can see some of the collected resources and comments in my original blog on the subject...
