Little Note

Just a brief note to say, I did good today! I stayed on plan, made my favorite meatloaf, and took my puppy to obedience class. I am feeling a lot better. Still have hives but not nearly as bad as they were... almost gone. My energy is returning, at least from 10AM to 4PM. Hey, it's a start :)

Many of you mentioned the book The End of Overeating in the comments, and yes, I have read it, and I highly recommend it! In fact, I think it's a good idea for me to pull it out and read it again. I learned a lot from reading that, and now I am sure it will help me even more. It is one of my favorite books. Thanks for the reminder.

Tomorrow is going to be another very good day. I can tell!

I peek back at the book from time to time. It was one of the decisive factors in my making real progress since mid last year. Every obese person should read it. I recommend it all the time. It was an epiphany sort of thing for me.

Great to hear you did well and are on the mend!

Fifteen pounds really *is* the limit of my "bumper" for weight gain. As I get smaller, I think it will be more like 8 or 10. I dunno, it does seem like people who get to goal weight have a certain number of pounds they allow themselves to fluctuate and once they hit their limit they do something to get back down. Do any of you guys do that?

I am responding:
to be honest, mine is 2 lb up leeway, the highest I remember seeing in those in serious maintenance is 5 lbs.

8-10 is going to be really hard on you emotionally (in my opinion) as it is hard work to get that much weight off on a regular basis. And at a smaller size, 8-10 lbs might mean you do not fit in your pants (everything is proportional, at smaller size).
