The maintenance group is great and has helped me with my transistion to maintenance. At first I thought I'd start to regain when I added more calories in, but I actually lost a couple more. I was eating the same range as you do for weight loss and now eat around 1400 to 1500 calories a day and I do weigh my self daily to keep any gains in check and it's working.

Hope to see you there too!

5 more pounds to go to reach my goal. What happens next? I have lost weight before only to regain all of it. I am determined that that will not happen this time.

Currently I weigh in every day, eat real foods (no junk - and don't miss it), log all foods I eat (usually 1100-1200 calories daily), eat 3 meals a day plus snacks, walk 4 miles (1 hour) a day 3-5 days each week. What changes when I move into maintenance mode? I cannot seem to find info on maintenance.
