A year ago, a week before my 40th birthday, I went on the scale and was horrified by what I saw.
This year I've learned more about nutrition and the science of metabolism than I ever have in my life.
Sticking to my eating plan, I lost 35lbs. I went off for two months and it took me another two months to lose what I'd put on, so won't be making that mistake again!
I have a long way to go before I'm of normal weight, but I'm steadily losing and my blood numbers are great!
@emacsen congrats on sticking to something that many find v v hard!
@emacsen yay “know theyself” and all that.
I'm currently dieting, and have also lost lots of weight. I initally did a “low(ish) carb” diet, cause lots of things I like are carb-y (like bread & pizza & chips), but I've just morphed that into a general “eat less” diet, and it's going very well. I weigh myself ~daily, so seeing the numbers helps motivate me, it means I'm able to eat smaller portions, cause I'm seeing the results.
That's what's working for me.
