Odds have dropped to 50%!

Friday, December 01, 2017

I'm happy to learn tonight that the odds of my regaining my weight lost have dropped to 50%. The past year has been a little rough with thyroid issues, but I think I'm getting it under control. I have other issues (medical) going on, but my doctors are thrilled at how much weight I lost and how I did it. I'm still getting used to people not recognizing me. Believe it or not, I sometimes still think someone is being snobbish toward me when they don't say anything. Last Saturday I had this experience. I finally "reintroduced myself," and this couple was amazed.

I am considering maybe losing a bit more, but I think I'll wait until the end of the month when all my medical tests are complete and ask the doctor. I do know the smaller a person is, the less calories he/she can eat and maintain that loss. I have to ask myself if I can maintain a lower weight considering some of my medical issues.

These past two years of maintenance have been more difficult than the previous 2 years of losing it. Am I still glad I did it? You bet!

    Congratulations on your accomplishment - 2 years of maintenance!!

    Reducing the odds of regain to 50% is an excellent improvement from our chances of regain at day 1 of maintenance. And, with each passing day those odds keep improving.

    50% is a huge improvement compared to the chances we have at Day 1 of maintenance...
