Weight Loss and the Elusive 5% KEEP IT OFF

Being part of the elusive 5% that keeps their weight off IS POSSIBLE! I am proof! This is a picture of me taken November 2018, June 2013, Sept 2009, sometime in 2006. YOU CAN DO THIS!!! That 5% number is NOT TRUE. It is based on people who report to the Nation Weight Control Registry. I and many of the people I know, who have lost over 100 pounds and kept it off, HAVE NOT reported our losses to them. How many more don’t? So their numbers are probably off. I’m absolutely sure that if all of us who lose weight and keep it off would report it, the 5% would be a much higher number- meaning YOU have hope!

So next time someone tells you that only 5% of people keep their weight off, tell them not to be so negative and that many many people do not report their losses that they have kept off.

Qualifications for the registry: Must lose 30 pounds or more and keep it off for a year or more and keep reporting.
