I don't know if I have to much advice to offer. I've lost and regained, lost and regained again. I'm now in the process of losing again. I also use to post here on the regular about two years ago and then I stopped when I started to regain. I use to feel ashamed but reading books about how our body actually works has helped me not to feel so bad. Our bodies are amazingly adept at gaining and keeping weight on. In a society that didn't have the abundance of food that we now have, this was a great thing. So evolution has pretty much selected lots of people like us.

The thing that I am remembering now (which I didn't even know before) is that I'm probably fighting against biology a lot. It helps to keep me more vigilant about weighing myself daily, keeping track of what foods I eat and getting exercise.

Don't feel ashamed. Weight loss is hard and as any successful maintainer can tell you, maintenance is harder.
