For most of my life I have been overweight and even during the times that I was close to my “normal” weight I was sure that I was overweight. I would loose 10kg only to gain back about 15kg.
I have tried every diet and suggestion but still for some strange reason I can never just keep the kilo’s off. I have also heard from numerous people that as soon as they reach a desired weight they again go back to their original weight.
The secret is that we are all different and for each one of us there is a specific diet that would for you as individual. But trying to find it can be a challenge. We also need support and motivation to keep at it. The important thing is to realise that you are definitely not alone. This is also why FatSecret has had enormous success.
