In order to lose the weight and maintain at first, it took a lot of vigilance. Tracking, shopping, getting the needed support - it was a priority and took a lot of my time and attention. At first I swung too far one way - was undereating and had to address that. Then I got sick. Getting well took over. That also involved nutrition as I discovered kefir, supplements, and now, a need to increase greatly fruits and vegetables (beyond the norm). I gained back some weight (which was ok) and then some more. Not too much though - still trying to decide where I want to be. I don't track anymore. I am aware of what I am eating (calories, nutrients, etc.) I weigh daily. Room for other things in my life has increased. I am glad the pendulum has swung the other way. I am hoping it is close to settling near the middle - balance.
