Yes, there is a Madness to my Maintenance Method
Wednesday, December 12, 2012
Since joining the Maintenance group I have been observing the approach others are using and contemplating my own method. I think putting this in writing is the best way to hold myself accountable to stick with my plan.
As I say on my Sparkpage, my overall objective is to maintain my weight in the healthy BMI range. Beyond the numbers, other parameters such as fitness level, stress, general health feel best when I am below 170. I hit my initial goal of 165 several weeks ago and I have been holding pretty steady between 165 and 170 for several weeks now (occasionally straying above 170). I noticed a lot of people have a "range" for their tracker which makes for sense for maintenance. So I think it is about time to switch over from having a "goal" to having a "range" as my tracker. So the plan is to set my range between 160 and 170 by my birthday in a little over a month. Before I do that, I want to try and reach the lower end of that range, see how I feel and and see if that helps do a better job of avoiding straying above 170. That's my plan. Now let's see if I can stick to it.
