Study Shows Why It’s Hard to Keep Weight Off.

The results show, once again, Dr. Leibel said, that losing weight "is not a neutral event," and that it is no accident that more than 90 percent of people who lose a lot of weight gain it back. BlueRidgeNow. 10/26/11.

Losing weight is only half the battle. Now where did I put that comfort bar of chocolate I'm keeping for just this occasion? ;) :lol:

Hello Jo, Sweet, Amanda & Buttons, :)

The last time I was weighed is visiting my rheumatologist July of this year. I was very pleased at the results. (96 lbs. a petite person & only 4'10"). Unfortunately, it gave me the excuse to eat a little more than I should. :( Now I'm afraid to weigh myself. Oh no!!!! I will avoid being weighed until I see my pulmonologist in Feb. 2012 and try to behave which won't be an easy task. Lol

Take care all & hugs
