well I have successfully gained back the 20 lbs I lost last spring on RFL so my goal this year is to try and learn how to keep the weight off.

I know, I know, its all about the calories and I should just stop eating too much but I have a really hard time not eating sweets and having some drinks on the weekends.

Gotta figure out if I hate depriving myself or dieting more !!

Its a learning process for sure. On the bright side at leastin my experience losing fat gets easier everytime you diet down and even if you rebound a bit its less and less everytime actually looking back at my off days/weeks I can really chalk up 80% of them to deprivation- eg, instead of eating some cake or ice cream or whatever i really wanted in fear of going over my calories by a trivial 200 300..whatever amount, within the next 2 days I had a treat which pretty much led to a cascade of binging and ironically caused far more of a dent than if I had just not passed up those cheese and crackers for a snack or whatever.

I hope you are right that its gets easier to lose every time you diet - going to start about the same time as last year and hope that I don't have to do it for as long.

I'm really hoping that a decent portion of the 20 lbs gained was muscle as I have been working out hard but at 50 years old, I cant expect the muscle gain to be a lot.

Will have to take some pics and compare to how I looked last year at this weight.

This is why I think I (or most long term dieters) can lower setpoint. I've rebounded endless times after dieting.

Before dieting at 20%+ BF would wreck me in my early 20s.

10 years later and I can stay at under 10% with bromo at least.

Half-way measures don't get very far. You can only do one thing well at a time. Trying to gain muscle while losing fat will result in failure.

Get to 10% bodyfat first while lifting weights heavy 3x a week with reduced volume. Two weeks maintenance. Bulk up slowly (1 lb weight gain per week max), focus on getting stronger, measure body composition changes often.

Right, by using "drugs" everyone can stay below setpoint.

Want.



A White Swiss Shepherd.

Not super likely, but grew up with German Shepherds and Golden Retrievers and I've got a crush.

And to get to 145 or less and stay there.

Curiously, how do you know what your set point Is?

Like many have said, gaining is easy, losing is doable, finding maintenance is difficult.

Your body will tell you. You feel much more hungry, think more about food, become lethargic, have less energy. You're just becoming a wreck.
