I've been in maintenance for four years, but in a way, I am experiencing a new phase of my maintenance. Last Christmas I got a little too carefree and gained to slightly above my upper limit. Of course I could see the old yo-yo syndrome coming back, so I doubled my efforts to lose the excess. I bought a FitBit and that little gadget really got me moving throughout the day, not just when exercising. I began losing and now am about 15 pounds under what my original maintenance weight was. So I am changing my goal weight to where I am now, but I think perhaps when winter comes, I may need to up that goal weight a few pounds. I will wait and see.
For BLC 20, I am hoping to stay within 3% of my maintenance range. I hope to really put effort into ST, other than just on TNT days, or when it is part of the weekend challenge. I would like to see a change in muscle tone at the end of this 12 weeks. Because I have been at a comfortable weight, I snack more than I should. I want to end this habit.
I'm looking forward to staying in touch with my Panther team because their high level of enthusiasm motivates me to do my best.
Wishing the best to all of you throughout BLC 20!
