I have found that during maintaining, it was best for me to keep the same "life plan", but i could do it every other day, or 4 days out of the week....instead of keeping with it 5 out of 7 days.
I weigh myself several times a week ( and Thursday it is official at my support group), to be sure that i am within my lee-way of 5 pounds, and adjust accordingly.
It took me about 3 months trying different ways...and found out just to continue with what i was doing for the past 3 years to loose it.....just a little more wiggle room!
Hambergers, fries, etc. still have the same amount of calories, too be easy to put it back on. But having a smaller stomich, i can get satisfied easier without overeating.....which also takes being aware of everyday. My biggest realization was emotional....realizating that if i return it to the refrigerator...it will be the later if i want it again....instead of eating like it was my last meal! lol
