Gain

I'm amazed at how long it takes to whittle down a few pounds and how easily they jump right back on. January was great for loss. From January 3rd to January 31st I love just short of 10lbs. February has been very unkind. Or really, I've been unkind to myself. Back to work.

It gets worse as we age. Every time I actively work on losing weight. I gain in the end. If I keep exercising and dieting like this I'll be at 250 lickity split.

I did. Highly intriguing. You still staying the course? I'm interested in an update. SOMEbody's got to be the guinea pig!

I am staying the course, mostly. I varied over the holidays and ate sweets and some bread. I gained back a bit but I have recommitted and it is coming back off. I am right at 220 which is about 30 pounds less than last January when I started. Considering that 2011 was a rather pathetic year for exercise, I am pleased. So far, 2012 has been a better year for exercise.

@KP sounds great. I lost 20 from Oct'10-March'11 and typically it all yo-yo'ed back on. As to exercise, I guess it matters a bit, but I'm beginning to think it's 90% diet and the exercise is a nice heart-healthy bonus.
