Today is my 365 day mark since downloading MFP and trying actively to lose weight. I've dropped from 276 to 192.2. That's a solid 1.5 lbs per week for 52 weeks.
Not that it was ever that linear lol.
I've had two or three month long stalls. I've had a few bad weeks where I ate SO much and gained weight. I've had days where I felt so happy and proud, and days where I cried and said I wanted to give up.
But I didn't give up, because I'm stubborn and because what is learned can't be unlearned. Ignorance was my problem. I knew food had calories but had no way to relate that info to myself in a meaningful way. Now that I know, I'll never be able to casually order a double cheeseburger with fries and milkshake again. Also I really no longer am able to eat that much without pain.
