    I think the biggest changes for me have not been in the amount but in the quality of my choices. My plate looks as full as it ever did, just with different things. Many more vegetables, minimal sweets, no processed food, etc.

    My thoughts: disgusting and I’d like to kick myself in my big behind if I could and it still was.

    Regret, lack of knowledge, didn’t have life in balance, didn’t realize the health effects (head firmly wedged in sand)

    Grateful I’ve turned it all around. Every. Single. Day.

    I did pretty good overall. Except for a few periods of undereating and losing too much weight.

    I think, in its entirety, "...wow."

    I also kind of miss the feeling of just letting go and eating until I feel 'full'. But the amount of food that would take is... not something I consider worth it anymore. (Unless I'm having a bad MH day but let's not even go there)

    I never really had a problem with over-eating. I put my weight on really slowly over years...about 40 Lbs over the course of 8 years or so. My biggest thing was going from being very active and working retail and landscape construction to taking a desk job and I rarely did deliberate exercise.

    My diet on the whole is more nutritious than it used to be, but that's really the only change and I exercise regularly now.

    ...how inactive my daily life has become. I put the weight on with less and less active jobs, until I had the full time desk job. Deliberate exercise couldn't make up for the drop in activity levels, and even extra daily movement couldn't come close to making up for it.

    It's less what I ate and more about how much I burned (but haven't for a number of years). My eating habits didn't change too much, but my activity changed dramatically, and I didn't adjust my eating.

    Still working on getting back there, I don't have it down yet.

    That I would become too lean! After being class 3 obese. From eating funyuns and code red, to no added sugar and no added fat! That I would have to regain my intentionally! Scary stuff!

    • Should've time-tabled my sedentary stuck-at-the-desk extensive hours
    • Should've been more active and moved more before and after work hours
    • Should not have stopped my outdoor fitness & social life norms
    • Should not have cut-off my active friends circle, meeting for lunch, quick cuppas and soirees
    • Should have done more DIY, Home-cooking Vs Home deliveries
    • Should've applied portion-control and eaten more regularly

    That unless I track every day, I could easily eat that way again. (Healthy meals and too many sugary treats.)

    I deal with things a lot better, emotional eater, I had rather eat than deal and the problems didnt go away. I would eat and had the problems and fat also, not good. Now I dont numb myself and work thru things. Much better life physically and emotionally.
