I'm winding down on my 8 week fast to loose the pounds I put back on 6 months after my big loss. Been doing some soul searching on what works and doesn't with weight loss and me. Trying to come up with life changes I can incorporate to me life.
Three rules to live by.
1. Don't be afraid to go back to whatever you did to loose weight before. Just because you gained weight doesn't mean you can't loose it again.
2. Weigh yourself often. At least once a week. Never go longer than 2 weeks or a month. 2 or 3 times a week if you have to. If you have to deal with weight issues you should get to know how often your weight goes up and down and what causes it.
3. Maintain some sort of physical activity. You don't have to call it exercise or go to the gym. Just do something that gets you moving every week. Some great advice I got from a friend is the best exercise is the one you will do.
The rest is just details. My life long goal is to be a weight loss master. Someone who can look back many years later and say I lost the weight and have never gained it back.
