A New Way to Think About Regain

We have all heard the statistics that 90% of those who successfully lose weight eventually end up gaining it back, and sometimes even more. This factoid was always in the back of mind, particularly after losing weight. Was I part of the 90% or would I be part of the 10%?

Early next month, I'm going to be celebrating 10 years on this healthy living journey. In 2007, I was totally fed up with myself. I had successfully lost weight in the past, many times in fact, only to regain it all. This happened not once, not twice, but many times. It is just so humiliating to yo-yo up and down, not 10 pounds mind you, but for me 80 pounds.

Now, I think of myself as a fairly intelligent person. How in the world could I be so oblivious and let my weight get so far out of control over and over again? It seemed like my body and mind were always at war with each other. After fighting the "good fight" as long as I possibly could, it just became too exhausting. What I wanted was change, something that would be permanent, that would have time to become routine and habit. I knew it would mean I would need to make major changes in my lifestyle, but if I took it slow and just made little changes instead of expecting perfection overnight, perhaps I would have a better chance of keeping the weight off permanently.

But back to the 90% / 10% "rule". I have come to think of it a little differently now, and perhaps you should too. No longer do I think that only 10% are able to successfully lose weight and keep it off. Anyone can do it by making slow, sustainable changes. These are changes that you are willing to live with for a lifetime. I now consider that permanent success may only come 10% of the times tried. I may have failed at 90% of my past efforts, but I kept trying and never gave up completely.

You can fall down numerous times, but just keep getting up, because your 10% success could just be around the corner.
