The basics:
Female
Age 35
2 years on habit
Height 172cm (5'8")
Frame Small (wrist < 9cm)
“During” weight July 2014 – 60.5kg (133 pounds), BMI 20

Click here for last year’s testimonial

The bit where I blather on:
2 years in I’m up 1kg (2 pounds) from my lowest “during” weight (when I was still nursing), but otherwise I’ve maintained my loss.

I had 3 months off habit over Christmas and New Year 2013/14, due to a bunch of different (mostly positive) disruptions. Luckily most of the good habits “held on” somewhat, so I didn’t gain that much, and any gain disappeared relatively painlessly once I got back into vanilla No S.

I’m a vanilla girl. I still have a strong “fence around the law” attitude and prefer not to virtual plate, eat sugar substitutes or anything else that confuses habit. My S days have calmed somewhat over the 2 years, but I still sometimes go wild and end up with a tummy ache.
I do moderate exercise (cycling to work, walking or swimming with my son, some free weights) on most days.

I used to weigh daily and calculate a trend. Then my scales broke and I couldn’t be bothered replacing them. For this update I weighed for a few days at the gym near me and took an average. In future I’ll probably do this every 6 months or so.

Congratulations! "Years on habit" is my favorite success metric. Great to hear vanilla is still doing the trick for you as well.
