this is an AMAZING thread! i love the "snarky" comments, to get different perspectives. i do have a tendency to take comments by males with a grain of salt.

i have asked countless people morbidly obese "why" they'd put back back on their lost weight. they ALL told me that they ate the wrong things, too much, etc.

30 years ago, i lost 60 pounds, but i always knew that the problem wasn't that simple. (it took 1000 calories/day to maintain my 160 lb. "still chubby" self.) no one ever asked ME why i'd gained the weight (that is a rather rude question! ), but if they had, i'd have told them that my metabolism was messed up.

in so many things, ymmv.

So if you maintain your weight for years and years and years, do you think your body slowly "forgets" it was ever obese and becomes more like a normal person's metabolism?

Wow, neurodoc....sounds like an eating disorder blog. At what point does
'health/weight consciousness' become anorexia? Something to think about, for sure.
