That is really a modest gain, although it doesn't seem to place undue pressure on you.IF i gain a lb a week I'll be 190 by the end of the year. There's a thought.
It seems more fun to me to go in starts and stops - I like to really, really indulge, but can't sustain it for a long period of time, but I catch my wind, so to speak, and can start again pushing myself, which I think is fun.
There's something to be said about reaching milestones too - 200 is one - 225 another - 250 - 300 - 350! (I got carried away!)
