I am 42 years old and have been on SP since September 2013. My all time high weight was 205 pounds (93 kilo) at 5 ft 8 (173 cm). I have weight this much a couple of times, decided to lose 50 pounds with a diet, would succeed and gained it all back. The last time I hit my all time high (April 2013) I was just so tired of it all, I decided to make more permanent changes. So I made some permanent changes gradually. I started keeping track of what I ate, focussed on and learned about eating healthy and started to do more sponteneous exercise and also planned exercise. This lead again to a 50 pound (23 kilo) weight loss, feeling fit and happy with myself. I have trained for a half marathon and then a whole marathon, which made it easier to keep the weight off. However, at some point exercise became a solution for eating too much fat, sugar and calories in general, again. I have been yo-yo-ing again since May 2015, recently back in the 190-ies. But even though I am still yo-yo-ing, it is not as bad as it was in the past, and I know the solution for me is tracking food, and staying within calorie range. So that is what I am doing again not thinking too much about all the weight I lost before that I now have to lose again...
