I struggled with my weight for years. I tried so many of the diets out there. They all seem to work for a short time, but then I get stuck and gave up and gained the weight back...
After two years of CONSTANT VIGILANCE (sound like Mad Eye, don't I?), I have managed to drop over 100 pounds.
While I'm still inherently lazy, I've found a few things that I really enjoy doing. Bicycling, hooping, spinning poi, and I'm even enjoying my running! (Yay for C25K!)
I think that's really the key, isn't it? Constant Vigilance - watching what I eat & keeping active. Now, that's not to say I don't let myself have treats (seriously, look up my flourless chocolate mug cake recipe); you need to have to occasionally let yourself have "bad" things, or you'll just obsess over them!
I follow what I like to call "Paleo Ranchero". (I guess you could call it "Primal" as well.) Veggies, some fruit, meat, nuts, very little grain, and cheese. It's pretty much a low-carb lifestyle, but not crazy low. I try to keep my carb intake between 100-150g a day. Some days are higher some days are lower.
I also have been Intermittant Fasting one to two times a week. Basically, I eat dinner then don't eat again until 1-2pm the next day. Then resume eating as normal.
My highest weight, around April 2010, was 304 pounds. I was unhappy, but didn't realize it. I've gone from a size 26 to a size 10.

Completed SF Progressive Marathon - with a final 5K time of 38:51
I rode in the Edible Pedal on September 18th, 2011. I didn't make the whole thing, but I did do 42 miles!
Completed Edible Pedal 2012 with a time of 5:15.
I also did my first 5K. It was the Foam Fest, a 5k obstacle course with BUBBLES! A lot of fun. It wasn't timed, and I didn't run, but I think we finished in about 55 minutes.
Finished 2012 5K Foam Fest in 46 minutes! Also, ran/walked the Run Amuck 2012 (2.5 mile obstacle course).
I. Can. Do. This.
I live in the Bay Area of California.
I am a costumer and enjoy going to Conventions. I adore going to concerts. I play World of Warcraft occasionally. I am addicted to Facebook. I'm the queen of the procrastinators! (If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done...)
I am a complete devotee of INXS. I've seen them live 19 times, and look forward to many more. I'm a "Timmy Girl" through and through.
I have a Harry Potter bathroom... (and a very large collection of HP stuff in general.)
I love movies and have a huge collection of DVDs.
