Have you lost a significant amount of weight and kept it off for at least five years?
By significant, I mean at least 30 pounds. (That is my definition, not necessarily that of the weight loss community.)
If yes, what was your initial weight loss plan? If you modified it along the way, what changes did you make? How have you continued to keep off the weight? What do you think has kept the weight off?
If no, what things have you tried to do to lose weight? (List as many as you have tried, or at least those that you remember.) When you have lost weight, what was the longest stretch of time that you kept it off? When you gained the weight back, did you gain only what you lost or did you put on more along with it? Why do you think that the weight has not stayed off?
If you don’t fall into either of these categories but can provide fairly accurate and complete information about someone you know, please do.
I ask this because I’ve been doing some interesting reading, and am wondering how Jellies might fit into the statistics that I have come across. I realize that it will be anecdotal, but that’s okay. I’m not doing a scientific study.
