Lost 50 lbs while working all the time. Def got in better shape, for my own comfort want to lost another 20. Past year has been nuts, life is just one swift kick in the b**** after another and put another 10 lbs on. Just marvel at how damn easy it is to gain weight…..after so much hard work, I’d think I would learn? Nope. I’m dumb. What ya’ll experiencing in your journeys??

Lost 35 pounds pre-Covid, gained like half back and it has been almost impossible to lose it again. If I eat one bad meal I am several pounds heavier the next day, it’s so demoralizing.

I’m with ya A1. I feel like my scale only knows one direction 🚀

I lost ~30lbs between Jan - Mar this year by working out and watching what I ate (low carb, calorie counting, limited alcohol etc). Worked my ass off to do it too. Was diagnosed with a thyroid problem Mar 2021 and have been sitting ~50-60lbs above where I was in Dec 2020 before the thyroid issue, which was already about 20 above where I’d like to be. Thyroid is under control now, but my weight isn’t. Started 2022 off SO STRONG and said this was going to be the time I actually did it and kept it off. Wanted to change my life. Had goals of 30 (achieved) , 50, 70 and eventually 90lbs lost.

Anyways, hit a vacation, fell off the workout bandwagon, came upon a lot of person and professional stressors and have gained it all back. Basically have to start all over again and it’s incredibly frustrating because it was already SO HARD to lose that 30 to begin with.

But story of my whole life - just add that I’m about 30lbs above my pre-thyroid issue highest weight and feel worse than I ever have.

33yo f. That metabolism sure did change!
