I continue most of what I did when I was losing. I still track food, get in my exerscise, drink lots of water and weigh each day to keep me honest. The calories are a little higher, but the healthy eating continues day by day. My fitful continues to remind me to get in a minimum of 10,000 steps each day and I celebrate when I exceed 20,000 or even 30,000 (rare). I am stronger in so many ways. It is a joy to read of others on the journey and cheer their success, too!

Becoming the healthiest me that I can be.

Pretty much the same as weight loss...tracking food, exercising, drinking water. Using the same commitment to reach my weight loss goal helps me stay on track and maintain my weight.

My goal is to be under 200. Over the past many years I have bounced around from 198 to 223. I think the problem is that when I get close to or reach my goal I just fall back into bad habits.

I have been at goal or a little under going on 2 years. It is still a struggle every day. But, I have learned that what I did to lose the 35.2 lbs is exactly what I need to and am doing to keep it off. Exercise most days, eat fruits, veggies, lean protein, whole grains. Limit the sweet stuff or find a good alternative to baking favorites. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day helps a lot.

I am so not perfect in any of this. And, I do weigh myself everyday that I am at home. When I see my weight go up more than 3lbs, I am back on tracking it and evaluating what I have been doing that has gotten me there. I try not to eat out at restaurants very often. But, this coming week, I will be traveling with hubby and will have to eat out. I try to make good wholesome choices because I know that I can eat out anytime that I want. So, why opt for fatty foods just because it is available to me. I try to aim for something green like a salad for lunch. It helps me stay in control and also it helps me stay regular which is always an issue when you travel. I like to eat as normally as I can when I travel. Oh, yeah, I will have something out of the ordinary, but I try to get some of my usual faire in. For me, it all about balance. That is the way life is. Maintenance is not at all easy, but it is so worth it. emoticon

About 5 years ago I went from 248 to 190. At the time I made an active choice to stop losing weight and to maintain due to a lot of stressful changes occuriring in my life at the time such as graduating college, starting my career, getting married, buying our first home, etc.. I always planned on trying to lose more and have tried several times (one time being as low as 179lbs.) but have never stuck with it long-term and have always gone back to between the 190-195lb. range. However this range was purposeful.

For me when I was in maintenance I had like stoplight weight ranges, and used this as a guide. Green range was between 190-195...if I was in this range then I was happy. Yellow range was between 195-199...this is when I knew I had to start taking purposeful action to lose weight again. I maybe did go on a full diet but I would start to count my calories, restrict eating out, and tried to increase my workouts. Red for me was 200...this was a number that was an absolute DO NOT GO THERE range. If I saw 200 this mean that I needed to go full gear ahead with losing weight. Thankfully. the highest I ever got back to was 198.

Maintenance is this weird thing. You need to give yourself wiggle room +/- 3-5 lbs. Maybe try using the stoplight philosophy. You have to be constantly vigilent of where your at. Part of maintenance is also hoping that you have made mind, and lifestyle changes that can help you keep the weight off. Changing your diet, becoming more active, not over indulging, and any other personal lifestyle changes that are important for you. However, I guess my maintenance story is a little different than most because I chose to quit losing weight even though I have more to lose to be healthy. It was the choice that was right for me at the time though, and I do not regret it because I feel if I would have continue to try to lose weight I probably would have stopped all together and totally regressed. Maintaining was hard enough during those times let alone having the stress of continuing to try to lose weight. I get discouraged by not seeing the scale move.

I'm back to Spark because at this point and time I am willing to give it another go to lost this last 60lbs. and I hope when I get to maintenance stage again it will be as easy for me as it was last time. I guess only time will tell.

I lost count of the times I gained/lost/gained/lost.....too many. In Oct 2011 I decided I'd had enough of diets. They didn't work. For me a diet only meant something I stayed on until I lost the weight. You'd have thought I'd have figured out that was a no win proposition.

This time I decided to not go on a diet. Rather I would chose to eat healthy most of the time, track my food, stay at a reasonable calorie goal (2,000/day for a 5'8" woman of 61 yrs old) and move more. I saw a hypnotist who helped me to pay attention to hunger - stop when I'm almost full and not to eat when not hungry

Lots more learnings as I went about this. The biggest is that it was and is a journey where I made small sustainable changes. Now I genuinely prefer the way I eat: focus on real food, watch portions & eat lots of plants. Exercise is a non negotiable part of every day.

I joined Spark in 2013 to help me with maintenance and it has. The articles are great and I am constantly learning new things and tips to stay healthy and on track. The community is great and so supportive. It is really encouraging to get the positive feedback.

There probably isn't ONE answer - in fact I know that there is no one size fits all in the weight loss/maintenance arena. You will find what works for you and you'll be one of us that not only loses the weight, but keeps it off.

Oh if only we could find that one thing. The thing that would make everyone successful in their weight loss. Why is it easy for some and not others? After 7 years of maintaining my 70 lb weight loss, I can only say for sure that a balance of exercise and caloric intake keeps me where I am. My mindset is definitely changed and I evaluate "almost" every meal and snack that I eat. Also, I put exercise at the top of my to do list because it is essential.
I don't always do it perfectly, some times the balance is out of whack, but I keep "my health" on the top of the list to ensure that I don't go backwards. I am my top priority, I have to be.

Live your life as though you are obligated to make the world a better place. Make a difference today, be the one!

I appreciate the encouragement ArchimedesII. But I can't help but be discouraged. Those are the same things I have told myself (and tried to do) every day for the past few years. Every day I say I will do just a little better. And almost every month, I gain another pound.

Went clothes shopping this afternoon and couldn't find a single thing to buy. Nothing fit -- no matter what size I tried.

But I keep coming back here ... hoping to get a different result tomorrow.

This is also my story! I lost 70 lbs. and "did" regain all of it !! With each life crisis I would gain 15 - 20 lbs each time and never got it off. I just returned to spark people 12 days ago. My attitude this time is that I will just "take one day at a time". I hope the 12 days turn into 24, then 48, then 96 and then for LIFE!!!! We CAN do this, this time. Just hang in there!

ONLINEASLLOU,

In short, you're just like the rest of us. Every single Spark member has been through the same thing. We're all experts at gaining, losing and regaining the weight. That was the past. You can't change the past, but you CAN influence and change the future.

Read some of the threads in the various forums. Many members regained the weight only to take it off. Read my profile, twice in my life I weighed over 200+ pounds, a few years ago I decided that wasn't going to happen a third time. that was my turning point.

You can lose the weight and keep it off, but it's going to take time. Mostly, don't beat yourself up because you did regain, we've all been in your shoes. Just start with a few simple changes and go from there. Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day and neither were you. If it took you four years to pack on the weight, it's going to take a while to get it off.

slow and easy really does win this race. Think marathon, not sprint.

I totally failed at maintaining my weight loss. I lost 56 pounds (from 203 to 147a few years ago and have gained almost all of it back (now at 195). I struggled with every pound gained, swearing that would be the last weight I gained. But nothing I tried worked and gradually, over a period of 4 years, it all came back.

What everyone here on Sparkpeople feared has happened to me.

My experience has been much like KRISZTA11's.

And, I just have to echo her comment about the necessary tweaks being barely noticeable to see a trend change ... seriously, for me 1 too many tablespoons of almond butter sends my weight trending upward and 1 too little can see the weight dip.

I'm a woman though ... so, 100 calories difference can be significant enough for me to see shifts in weight trends. Sometimes, it is as little as 50 calories and timing ... when I eat is just as significant for me.

I have inflammatory issues and meal timing impacts inflammation along with it's associated fluid retention and weight spikes. Too much physical activity can result in inflammatory spikes for me as well.

I've also seen that increased physical demands routinely see elevated weight for about 3 weeks until my body adjusts to the new demands and then, my muscles release the water that's been retained.

So, I've found maintaining along with increased physical activity (like training for a running event) to be a bit tricky.

It's a challenging balancing act. I find I am fearful to eat above a certain amount of calories unless I'm also able to work out substantially. Because I've been sidelined with a shattered wrist, trick surgery a week later and continuing in a lot of pain, weakness, fatigue that is over the top. I know I'm eating fewer calories than recommended, but if I increase the calories the weight creeps up. Can't wait to be more active once again.
I'm so looking forward to weeding out my wardrobe and shop for new spring and summer things in my smaller size (4 jeans). As soon as my wrist allows this I think I will be getting back on track and the balancing act may become easier.
I don't want to become anorexic so push myself to eat even when my appetite is not there. The last think I want to do is trade one problem for another.

Becoming the healthiest me that I can be.

Making the weight go sideways is often tricky.
Too little food - weight continues to drop, too much food- weight starts creeping up, and the difference can be as little as 100-200 calories.
Your weight fluctuation doesn't sound too large to me.
If you take 160 pounds as center weight, and allow plus-minus 5 pounds, that is +-3%, which is not bad at all.
Not easy... I find planning food the previous day, and following that plan very helpful.
If go over my maintenance range, I cut my portions by 100-200 calories, If I go under, I add a little back. This is hardly noticeable, like +/- 10 grams of walnuts at breakfast, +/- 20 grams of brown rice, add an apple or a half square dark chocolate at dinner.

Maintenance Lessons Learned:
-go on with the healthy lifestyle learned in weight loss phase
-just add healthy foods gradually to stop losing
-work out every day - 30-60 minutes is enough to maintain weight and good mood
-do not try to balance overeating by extreme workouts, it is not going to work
-avoid overeating, instead of satisfaction you get stronger cravings

I use the nutrition tracker to check my macronutrients, if in balance the protein helps with MUSCLE gain & the carbs with weight loss fuel & the GOOD FATS like avocado & nuts are golden adds too! If you gain any, make sure it is MUSCLE.

I don't go to the gym & don't have a body fat scale, but I can tell by my toning in the areas I strengthen like bicep & tricep that it is muscle gain as opposed to fat.

I have had my body fat tested twice in the past two years. One was 16% and the other was 17%. I was actually about 170 at 16% and 159 at 17%. I had more muscle when I was heavier.

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.

PSCHIAVONE2,

Have you ever had your body fat professionally tested ? Go to your gym and ask one of the trainers if they'll do a 9 point caliper test. the more accurate test would be hydrostatic testing, but that's expensive. Don't let them use one of those hand meters. those are notoriously inaccurate. See if someone will do the caliper test for you.

If your body fat is below 10%, that would show your doctor that you didn't need to lose. If you're hovering around 10-12%, that's still a really good number a guy. Only the top athletes and body builders have a body fat percentage below 10% for a male. Women body builders come in around 12%.

If your body fat percentage comes in around 18-20%, you might need to lose a few pounds. Your average female can carry 20-29% body fat. Women athletes can range from 12-18%. Men and women can go lower than 10%, but it's not really recommended. The human body is supposed to carry some fat to be health. The problem with modern society is that too many people carry 30-50% body fat. And that's not healthy.

anyway, ask your PT to do a 9 point caliper test to see what your current body fat percentage is. That will give you a better idea of whether or not you need to lose weight. Body builders are considered obese by the BMI model. BMI doesn't take lean muscle into its calculations. It's just weight divided by height squared.

Well, maintaining weight has been easy for me, it's like... I physically can't overeat now. Which kinda sucks because I'm trying to build some muscle but.. it's just not happening.

Very interesting. I have found that reducing my running and weight lifting from every day to 3 to 4 times a week has helped me stay south of 160 pounds. When I was working out everyday I just could not keep at 1800 calories and I would bulk up and hit the 170 mark. I am only 5'4", and my doctor thinks 160 is too high for me but I do not honestly see going down to 145 just to hit a BMI number.

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.

PSCHIAVONE2,

I don't have a sweet spot. I have more of a range of plus or minus a couple of pounds. Like you, if I don't watch what I eat, my weight will go up. And that's what happened a couple of years ago when I wasn't being too mindful of what I ate at work. Started eating a little too much of the meeting left overs.

Anyway, long story short, started being more mindful, started eating better and the excess weight came off. One thing I've learned over these past few years is that my weight does have a range. My current range is 134-137. I've been in that weight range for the past 3-4 weeks. This is down about 3-5 pounds from 3-4 months ago.

I've been slowly inching down because I'd like to see if I can make it down to 130 without compromising my lean muscle. I know that when a person loses weight, some of that weight will be from muscle. So, I'm trying to be careful with what I eat and get in plenty of strength training.

I will say that there really is no sweet spot. I think that if a person wants to maintain a lower weight, they must be vigilant. I feel that if our body was to decide what we should weigh, it might be about 5-10 pounds higher. Because our ancestors went through periods of starvation, I think our bodies prefer to have a little "padding" for those lean times. The problem is that those lean times don't exist any more. If we eat everything that's in sight, we'll put on too much extra padding.

So, I'm not surprized your body may want to be a little higher. I think it's because our biochemistry is designed to hold on to some fat to fend of the lean times.

From my own experience, if I don't watch what I eat, if I do eat a few too many desserts or chocolate, I will gain weight. no doubt about it. However, if I eat plenty of fruits/veggies, limit the intake of desserts and workout regularly, my weight stays stable.

I maintain my weight pretty easily because I work out everyday, walk five to seven miles daily, and use portion control daily.

I've been at or under my goal weight for almost 4 years and have to say it hasn't been hard. I credit that to my approach to losing weight. When I started I committed to choosing to eat healthy most of the time, tracking my food, staying at a reasonable calorie goal and moving more. As I progressed I tweaked me eating and made small sustainable changes. Realized that what I did to lose weight was what I'd do for the rest of my life.

Now I eat very differently and actually prefer this way of eating. No food is off limits, although I choose to. not eat some for health or animal rights issues. I find that this approach makes it much less likely that I'll overindulge. Exercise is now a non negotiable and pleasurable part of every day.

You can check out my page & you'll see in some of my blogs what has worked and is working for me.

Over the last 6 years or so I have been trying to maintain my weight at 160 pounds. Not much luck though. If I am not ever vigilant I can balloon up to 170 and over very easily. I seem to cycle from 155 pounds to 160 pounds. When I get down to 155 I try to add some calories to maintain and I end up going up to 160 in a few weeks. Then back down some calories until I get to 155 again. I would love to be able to settle in to a calorie range that keeps me at 160 plus or minus about 3 pounds. Has anyone found their sweet spot for weight control?

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.
