I recently passed the two year anniversary of my diet/lifestyle change and I suppose it requires an assessment.
The second year was the rebound year. I pushed the weight loss quite far and some of it came back with a vengeance once I relaxed my rules. Carbs crept back in and my dedication to the daily exercise routine waned.
Oddly, I’ve reached a kind of steady zone where I neither climb nor drop. However, the zone is above where I’d like to be.
I still fit the clothes I bought after the weight loss, but they are noticeably tighter than they were before.
I’ve been reviewing the first food journal I kept to see what the biggest changes have been with the goal of restarting the “diet” I followed in that book. I’m waiting until after we get back from the in-laws to start though. Being here involves food and alcohol that doesn’t fit the plan.
I’ve been lazy about exercise though; that also doesn’t follow the plan.
