Is permanent weight loss possible at all?
The idea of the name of permloss.com was to get to a formula or a state where your weight loss or my weight loss would be permanent. I remember that as a tennis player I could go back on court after an absence of say four weeks and still play a reasonable game. Everything was not lost during the period of the break from the tennis court. I took this thinking to my new found passion of running. It did not quite work out the same – four weeks of no running would not set you back four weeks, but much more. The fitness builds up over time and although I still knew how to run, the lungs and the legs quickly told me that the “base fitness” was not at the same level that I though it would be.
