    Has anyone been able to lose weight without reverting back to a sluggish metabolism or do I just need to get used to this rounder figure? It’s not all bad but I wish I could lose a little around my hips, thighs and tummy but not at the expense of all the good stuff.


    Wish I knew the answer…..I’m working on just accepting my plumped up self just in case as I’m not going back to dieting ever again


    Thanks for your response jax68. I think I’ll just roll with it for now.



    I have been refeeding for about six months. I stopped gaining weight about 2 months ago. I have not lost weight according to the scale but my body looks much better and more importantly I feel much better. Stable moods, better sleep and many many more positive changes. I gained about 25 pounds in all but my body is surprisingly firmer, and the best part is even though I haven’t lost a pound yet my big belly I had in a August is almost flat again without doing really much exercise, some kettle bells once a week for 10 min and light pilates. The only other change I have made is that I am now only eating to appetite. Overall I am optimistic about the weight because I see changes in my body happening almost everyday right in front of my very eyes. Cheers to real food and eating enough of it!


    I think I can kind of see that happening to me. My tummy seems to be less big, I know this because I can now button a few pair of jeans that I wasn’t able to button just a week ago and I haven’t lost any weight. My thighs and butt are much bigger though but they don’t look bad. I really think I have gained some muscle. I’ve been doing this for about 4 1/2 months and have gained about 10 pounds. I think I have stopped gaining and am eating to appetite. I am exercising 4 days a week but no more than 30 minutes each work out. I have had so many positive results from this that I cannot imagine going on a diet again. Thank you for the encouraging words. I’m glad that you are seeing positive results and I wish you continued success and health!


    As long as you continue exercising and don’t gain any more weight, you should see improvements in body composition. Obtaining the figure you want shouldn’t require self-deprivation and ill health, but I think it does require persistence and work. Building muscle takes a long time.
