Another 2 weeks, another 2 pounds down. My pants are back to fitting comfortably, which is a great motivation! I do eat mostly clean year round (when I eat processed food, it is almost always bread), and that keeps me from being 300+ pounds like the rest of my family. But, I naturally gain about 2-3 pounds a year. So every 5 years or so I restrict my calories to get my weight back down to optimal. My doctor said that even 10 pounds can highly elevate the possibility of diabetes, and I have been prediabetic before, so I am really careful to stay under a certain weight.
