If you are bored you might find time for a hobby. My Mother used to say busy hands make light work, I am never bored but i do love to keep up with Spark people. Great plan is to use the boredom time to journal or plan for your meals or snacks. That way even boredom eating has less carbs or calories. Concentrate on the trackers they really help. This has to be a lifetime commitment to maintaining your HEALTHIER body. I shall join the team once I get there. Pat in AUGUSTA.

The At Goal and Maintaining team here on SP is pretty great and is getting more active by the day. I find maintenance easier when I keep in touch with other maintainers. I have a repertoire of meals I can rely on for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and the in-between times, and that helps a lot. I try to keep a fully stocked fridge and cabinet. I see that you work in Farmington in higher education. UMF, perhaps? I graduated from there in 05. Love Farmington :)

Hi all! I've been using SP for over a year now (last summer, I dropped 50 pounds using SparkPeople, 25 of which I gained back in a year, and subsequently lost again this summer). I am at my goal weight now, and have been pretty diligent about maintaining my exercise routine, but sticking to nutrition is proving to be my kicker. I'm a bored eater (as I'm sure many people here can relate to this) and was wondering if others had strategies to stay on track that have worked for them. I think I'm going to start keeping a journal so I can record the way it makes me feel each time I overeat out of boredom...but am open to other ideas if you have them! Thank you!
