I don't know people like that because most of the people i know are not significantly overweight. Generally its me who regains and loses. I don't care what people think. Its just my life.
But of course i don't want to regain and this time i'm very focused on how i'm going to maintain and keep going forever. Its been about making it easier to lose and then maintain and its been a lot about the mental stuff.
I expect I will reach my goal easily before the end of the year. My concern is how will my running race and training impact my chances of regaining.
This is such a different way of thinking about the future than how i've thought about "being there" in the past.
I agree entirely with linjber. An awareness of the need for restraint is a key factor.
