I always thought I lived a relatively healthy lifestyle. I would go to the gym on and off, sometimes 3 or 4 times a week, then I’d have a week or 2 off. I was always busy with work so would often go most of the day without eating and then eat a big meal (often takeaways) when I got home.
The problem was, although I was going to the gym and trying to stay in shape, I’d have a good week and lose a pound or 2, then I’d slack off for a week, find those pounds again and sometimes gain even more.
I seemed to be caught in a never-ending cycle of losing weight and then gaining it again, and never felt like I was making any real progress.
