    Not too complex really.

    Started diligently tracking my calories and realized I was eating 3000+ a day. Brought that back to 1500 by eating smaller portions but still the same food, just less.
    The weight came off at a rate of 0,6 kg a week. I didn't exercise.

    I had a blimp around the mid 60s kg and at that point I started to look closer at my macros, lowered my carbs and upped my protein. As I was impatient I brought my calories back to 1200 (which I don't recommend)!

    Once I reached the high 50s kg I should have started recomp to keep and/or strengthen muscle but life got hectic at that time and I ended up running on coffee and lost a too much weight and muscle.
    Currently busy correcting that by running a lean bulk while doing Strong Curves and it that works like a treat! Loving SC and I'm now back on 55 kg, 2 more kg to go.

    My maintenance intake is 2000. That took a while to figure out but slowly upped my intake and let my body adjust.

    Good luck as there is a lot of determination needed!

    Thanks for this Anna. It's so encouraging for those of us in the middle of it to see plain common sense work so well :)

    April of 2012 at about 310 and July of 2014 at about 135. I'm currently around 140. I find I tend to look kind of sickly and people are constantly asking if I'm ill or if I have anorexia if I go below that.


    When I get below 140, people start asking me if I have an eating disorder, too, despite being in a healthy BMI. It’s always interesting to me how people carry their weight differently.
