For me, the key has been eating the most I possibly could while still losing weight. My rate of loss was like a half pound to one pound per MONTH. With that, I could eat enough, I could eat carbs, I could feel my best. The process itself was thoroughly enjoyable. After a year and a half or two years (which are going to go by anyway), I was 20 pounds lighter with no more weight struggles.
It's a sharp contrast to losing the same weight in 12 weeks, being low-grade miserable the whole time, and finding myself rebound eating to a higher weight than when I started. I did that dozens of times before opting for the ridiculously slow and pleasant route. The approach itself was so nice, I didn't even care if it resulted in weight loss, but it did.
I love when you talk about your slow steady weight loss to get you where you are. It's so admirable.
