Well I've been maintaining for more than 6 months. Longest I've every maintained any weight. I've found lately that it is getting a little easier although I still have to count my calories. It is like a safety blanket for me. Take today for example. I had a hamburger when we went out to lunch which is something I don't do. And if I do have one, I only eat half. But today I ate the whole thing. And I just ate a lighter dinner and was able to stay within my calorie range. I find that if I eat at the high end of my maintenance weight calorie range, I don't feel like I'm depriving myself. Maybe one day this will all be 'normal' to me but right now I am still working my way through it.
The good news is that I'm keeping things in better balance than I was. It feels better.
My plan is to celebrate every month anniversary of maintaining my weight. It is something to look forward to and something I am very proud of.
When I get in trouble I know I have the support of all my sparkfriends on this fabulous website.
Thanks to you all.
