First of all I just want to thank you for a great blog! I found your page while reading Cristin’s blog on Self’s “Eat like me”.
I used to be heavy in HS. I lost close to 4o pounds over the course of a few years. I am now up about 10lbs from my lowest weight and would love to lose 8-10lbs. I find that I am just not as dedicated as I used to be. I am trying real hard though. I love eating healthy, cooking healthy and reading health books and magazines. I used to get up every work day and get to the gym by 5:30am, workout, shower at the gym and get off to work. Now I work out at home (I have a nordic track elliptical) or at the gym in the evenings. I am working out about 4 days a week, but need to up it to 6 days. I used to spin 3 days a wk and loved it! Now it has been a year since I took spinning and i feel a huge difference in my body. I am trying so hard to gain back my motivation to workout like i used to. I still workout but not as much or at the intensity that i was.
Any tips? thanks!

I bet I can guess the announcement! Although that’s not really fair since you told me about it at the wine tasting thing. I made the tofu the other night, I used the stir-fry recipe from the site you sent me and it was great! I never knew I could like tofu!
I decided I’d just post as Rummie since a million people read your blog and you probably wouldn’t have any idea who it was otherwise. Plus it’s just funny :)

^^^Andrea—I am going through a similar situation as you! I went down from 240 to 175 over a couple years and I have always wanted to drop ‘the last 10’ pounds (like many people!). What I have recently realized is that I may never lose the last 10 pounds because my body seems to be very happy at my set point now. I feel good, I work out 3-5 times a week, and I eat right (of course everything in moderation 😉 What I am trying to say is not to be hard on yourself. You are doing everything right, if you are healthy and happy that is all that matters, right? I think women have a tendency in general to think they still have 10 pounds to lose when they actually are at the perfect weight. I know whenever I lose a few pounds less than my ‘set point’ I tend to be really hungry and gain those few pounds back anyways. Just listen to where your body is happiest I guess. That is my life lession learned this past year. Sorry to highjack the blog by the way!

I think books are very motivating. Could you read Fit From Within or SuperFoods? I can't emphasize how much they really did put my focus on health instead of weight loss/struggling with food.


Thanks for chiming in! Great advice!


I think Rummie suits you just fine :)
