I agree that keeping active and varying the activity is key. I schedule my workouts on my calendar. I monitor my diet and still log my food. I find that I stay pretty consistent with my breakfasts and lunches each day. I also continue to drink a lot of water.

I think for me it will be keeping a consistant exercise routine. Knowing that I have to do X amount of cardio and weight sessions a week on a certain day, and so on, will really help to keep the focus. Never before did I maintain an exercise routine. I always went right back into a couch potato and over eating life style.

I will be maintaining Oh So Soon!

Not keeping goodies in the house for me. I have to get items I know I CAN'T eat for my husband. My hardest thing is having chocolate in the house for Bob, but remembering if I eat it I will get really sick.

It has been my own experience that keeping up at least 30 minutes of cardio emoticon helps me the most. Also, continuing with the cardio motivates me to continue tracking what I eat. Can't explain why, but it does!

Challenges emoticon work for me, too...

I am working on getting some consistancy in my new life. Been sick a week, so haven't be on a scale.
