One of the great injustices of losing weight is that the more weight you lose, the harder it becomes to lose weight. Being obese, although having the downside of being obese, means that you have to eat a certain amount of kilocalories to maintain your weight. And that goes up, because the more weight you carry around, the more energy you use just moving yourself around. The skinnier you are, the less weight you have to move and... Well, you get the drill.

I'm not sure how big of a swing this is or whether or not it is just part of the narrative you tell yourself when you're trying to lose weight. I realized that some of the problem, or a big part of the problem, is that I just can't eat between meals. It's really that simple. And if I don't do that, I can be happy.

Anyway, CHARTS! Follow along at home!
