Another round? ... sigh...

Hello all,

I have been a great believer in SBD when 5 years ago I lost around 30lbs after a 2nd child. However, those pesky 10lbs had stayed... call them 'vanity pounds' or 'inheritance weight' or 'genetic setback', but they are still here. I wanted so badly to lose them, I had a few rounds of P1, sticking faithfully, exersicing and losing nothing. I had hit a major stall that lasted for 3 months to the point when I lost all motivation. My weight stabilized around 120lbs and has been around that for a few years until a month ago I gained almost 10 lbs. in one month, just like that thanks to lack of self-restrain, lots of holiday cooking and lots of parties.

I'm not sure if I can ever return to those coveted 110lbs but my ultimate goal now is to get back to 120lbs. I'm starting P1 again tomorrow! I'll post the journal and weigh-ins soon.

Welcome back and good luck. I'm also haunted by those 10 vanity pounds. We're all in this together.
