I recently had a bright idea. Admittedly sometimes I am slow with the revelations other times I am right on.
To review - Feb 2011 I reached an all time low weight of 185. I was loving it. Slowly I gained weight.
This is not about the "why" I gained weight. This is about a major misconception I held onto during this time.
I figured is was easy on, easy off. That 5 or 10 pound (or later nearly 20) gain would come off easy since I already took it off. No, it wouldn't be as tough as it was the first time.
I was wrong.
It takes just as long to get rid of a gain as it did the first time.
It sucks but it is true.
This misconception killed my motivation to actually get the weight off.
