thank you both for the welcome - i'm still tracking and because i have a major lifestyle change coming up next week. we spend our summers in sweden with a house full of guests and plenty of good food and drink, both at home and when we are invited out. so far from the controlled environment that has been so successful, i will be faced with "choices" - and supermarkets that are not quite offering what i crave - collards, kale and chard in quantity. i will have to revamp our (vegan) diet a bit to what is available there, and also face all the traditional treats.

so i'm being quite rigorous, am aiming to "lose" a couple of more lbs just to make sure that the goodies don't add too much back (and in reality, i suspect this rigorousness will keep me even where i am now). when we return to the states in september, i think that after a while i will be able to let up on the food tracking just knowing what goes in and goes out in a day of food and fitness. but for now - tracking it all and an eye on weight loss, just a bit more...

live every day so the border collie is happy for a good, active life!

I'm the exception here because I don't count calories and I weigh officially only 4x a year. I say get clear what meals are satisfying to you but let you feel light and free without getting hungry for several hours. Notice carefully about the volume of protein, starch, and fat it takes and determine to eat that or less at meals just about forever. Allow yourself to eat about 25% more than that at a few well-chosen meals per week, but no more. You can round out with freggies. If you in social situations where the food is rich, resolve to eat less of it, but truly enjoy it, taking your time eating it and "fill up on" the atmosphere.emoticon

hi there
i'm from washington state, joined SP in 2006, but never got serious until late march this year. i had been yoyoing up and down and made up my mind that i was finally going to DO IT. and i did! i had initially set a goal that i thought was impossible, and reached it a month early; today was the day i was supposed to hit the next goal - i reached it yesterday, and even slid under just a tad.

i would like to stay in this range where my goal of 108 is my "wake up" weight and 110 is my bedtime weight, which means that it would not hurt to lose just a teeny bit more to have that leeway. also, while it is easy for me to stay on track when we are at home, we spend our summers in sweden with lots of socializing, dinners, wine, etc - and i want to have the room to deal with that too.

and the real challenge will come with the winter, which is when i traditionally go up in weight - and i do not intend to do so this time around.

so any and all advice on maintenance would be greatly appreciated!

live every day so the border collie is happy for a good, active life!
