Article: The Science of Set Point at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

I recently listened to a TED Talk that focused on how your brain reacts to weight loss, and learned about the concept of a set point. The article below is an interesting idea on how to reset that point for permanent weight loss. It targets 10% weight loss annually. However, I believe my body effectively reset it's set point even losing more than that across a 6 month period in 2006. I have been able to return to the same lower weight even after two babies within two years!

I finally hit my goal weight this week. It seemed to just melt off this week - fitting with the intensity of the heat outside. Maybe it baked off on my early evening walks!

Next goal - Shape up a bit more!
