I wonder if there are any foods you think are too "dangerous" to eat, either because you think they are triggers to eat more or because they are just too calorie-dense. Of did you go vegetarian or the opposite, carb free, to lose the weight and maintain? I read on other threads of people making all kinds of rules for themselves that they find hard to keep and I wonder if they are necessary. How many people ever really give up, for example, sugar forever? Don't we all have to learn how much we can have and when?
I've lost 17/18 lbs. in the last year by eliminating snacking and eating sweets only on weekends. I'm cutting down on them more and more as time goes by. I never thought I could go all week without chocolate but I have many times and it's no big deal now. I still eat too many sweets sometimes, but I am convinced ti would be a mistake to try to cut them out forever. It's just not likely! I believe I can eat them in moderation--forever.
So, is there something you're afraid to eat because it will ruin your maintenance?
