I've strayed from the course and gained 5 lbs (after a year of maintaining) but I'm jumping back on. Thank you.

This is really good! From the book "MAYO CLINIC on healthy weight" (2000).

STAYING THE COURSES

You may think that once you've achieved a healthy weight, your work is done. Once you've reached you goal, staying there should be a breeze.
Sorry; but that's your old diet mentality talking. It goes back to the idea that you go on a diet to lose weight, and once you lose, you go off.
That kind of thinking leads to regaining weight. Been there. Done that. Not going there again.

This time you're going to hold on to your hard-won victory.
Maintaining weight involves the same process as losing it. You can probably add some calories to your daily intake once you reach your goal weight.
Besides that, you just need to keep walking the path you're on.
Whatever you employed to help you lose the weight, you'll need to use to keep it off.

That's why we've been stressing the need for LIFESTYLE CHANGES.
That's why it's so important to make changes you can live with over the long haul.
You're already doing what you need to do.
You're making healthy food choices and moving your body every day.
You look good. You feel good. You're justifiably proud of yourself.
Just keep on keeping on.
