    What rate 9f loss did you choose? 2lbs a week or less?

    0.5 kg per week. My progression has been faster, around 1,2 kg per week. I do not know why, as I have followed MFP faithfully the entire time. I end up at 0 every day. I have logged calories as faithful as I can, as well as calories burned from walking/exercising. I do not know why it has gone as fast as it has. Obviously, I am happy with it, but it would be nice to know more. I also do not understand why the rate has varied. The first 2 months, I lost 14 kilos. Then it slowed down, in November and December I only lost 2 kilos. In January I was back to 7 kilos, then 3-4 kilos every month after that.

    I haven't had any macro goals up until now. Only calories. But, yeah, I finally reached my target weight (85,6 kg, approximately 187 lb) yesterday. So now I have to rethink what I am doing. Want to get stronger, so I have bought kettlebells and plan to exercise with them 2-3 times a week. I will continue with walking/jogging as well, but not to the same degree as before. As for macro goals, got a tip from my cousin that I should shoot for 40/30/30 (carbs/fat/protein). My diet has been more like 60/25/15, so I have to make some significant changes. Eggs for breakfast, chicken breast, less oatmeal etc.

    Congrats - you made great strides and perhaps part of the lesson/challenge is once at maintenance to keep an eye on things and if they start to move in an undesired direction to assess early on to make small changes.

    That's an amazing result, you look so different, it gives me hope that it won't take forever for me to lose the weight, is your diary public I'd love to see what your intake has been? And I love the update that you got complacent, that honesty is where it's at.... Well done for getting where you want to be

    Maybe not a success story per se, at least not in the traditional sense. But I want to be honest. Loosing the weight is just the start, after that you have to learn how to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.[/quote]

    It's totally a success story!!

    Congratulations! Reading your story is inspiring. That's the fear, that once you lose weight it will creep back. Good for you for catching it and hitting the reset button.

    I love that you came back to update your story. I lost some weight a couple of years ago, and then let it creep back on. Your story is an inspiration!
