"Sometimes, just holding your own and not gaining (or regaining) weight is a very significant accomplishment." Just read this on SP....exactly what I needed to hear. Been "holding my own" for months now. Which is something I have never done in my entire dieting "career" :) I have ALWAYS gone up. So I am going to change my way of thinking about this time and see this as a positive and move on. emoticon

    Hi. Nice page. i just wanted to say that i do, indeed, like staying my weight and not gaining weight, but i feel like when i stay a certain weight for a period of time, I feel like I'm in a rut. I don't feel like I'm moving forward. The toughest problem I'v had in my life is being comfortable in my own skin. When I here guys over my shoulder saying, "Where are all the little girls at?" And of course, I am not "little" but I'm not big either. But still...
You seem to be pretty confident and happy to be who you are. How do you do it?

    I'd be happy to hold my own instead of starting over again! Lesson learned - again.

    II HAVE ALWAYS GAINED ALL THE WEIGHT AFTER LOOSING MANY TIMES. THIS TIME I TAKE IT OFF IN BLOCKS. AND REJOICE EACH TIME IT STAYS OFF. SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE. ONE DAY YOU WILL WAKE UP AND SAY " I DID IT" AND YOU WILL. emoticon emoticon

    I track my daily weight in Excel and a few weeks ago I saw a steep incline in my weight and I knew that there was something wrong. To gain over 20 lb in a matter of days would require a huge excess of calorie intake. Started the search for what was going on and the first conclusion was that the excess weight was caused by edema.

After consults and lots of testing, the final result came in. I now have a very aggressive lymphoma and now I am in chemo. Since my blood pressure is so low, it is difficult to aggressively attack edema with water pills since that can seriously lower the BP even more.

I just finished chemo number 3 of 6 so I will soon know the final solution.

I applaud you for you analysis of your situation. I hope my going on about my situation was inappropriate..

Thanks for listening.

    I absolutely agree with your assessment of "holding your own." After the "fun" of losing weight, it's down in the trenches when it comes to maintaining. I've lost 80 pounds and have been at my present weight for over a year now. I weigh once a week only, and I fear the worst every time I get on the scale although I know I am monitoring everything reasonably well. I keep thinking I'll blink and all the weight will just jump back on in an instant. I still don't have a realistic mental picture of myself. I still feel like I weigh 230#.

I know this will change slowly, and I'm not going anywhere. Just trying to keep putting one foot in front of the other and deal with the feelings--remembering that feelings are not fact.

Good luck to you as you move on! Thanks for sharing.

    maintaining is an accomplishment not enough people take pride in.

i am not yet at goal, but i have to keep reminding myself that i've kept off 45 lbs for over 6 months now...something, like you, i've never been able to do.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

    Holding your own is a great accomplishment, people often think you're not going anywhere if you're not going down, but we all know that going up is far too easy. Keep up the great work! emoticon
