It took me 18 months to lose 120 lbs. Since then, I’ve been as low as 196 lbs (briefly), and generally around 202-205. (I weigh myself daily).
Usually, I gain weight in the summer as I gorge on my favorite fruit, cherries. However, over the past year, I’ve been snacking more between meals. Almonds and unsweetened dried fruit. That ended up with me averaging 209-211 lbs. That bothered me, because I’d been able to buy a nice wardrobe since losing weight, and some of those purchases were getting snug.
So, I stopped snacking. Cold turkey. Tough for a week, but now I’m used to it. Now 204-206 lbs.
My exercise routine hasn’t changed. Again, I believe that weight loss is 2/3 food choices, 1/3 physical activity.
