Yes it is easy to fall off when you've accomplished weight goal lose. I've lost 30 pounds, combined with streghten training to have leaner muscles. Now that I've lost the weight.......I find myself wanting to sink back into over eating and not watching my calorie intake. But I quickly flashback to the hard work spent to reach my goal and walk away from that donut, or french fris that I might crave.
It's also important to have friends or family to help you slap that dessert or fried food from your mouth because they support and love you enough to say 'no!' I guess I'm just determined NOT look like the old me and have accepted food struggles will always be apart of my life. Learning to CONTROL what and how much I eat and not it having CONTROL over is 90% of maintaing the 'perfect you.'
I'm more than a conquerer!

So I'm back. I lost 20 pounds between Halloween and Christmas, then lost my motivation. I have managed to keep it off, fluctuation just a couple pounds up and down since. While this is VERY good, considering I'm not paying much attention to what I eat, it is also annoying, because I am on the edge of a clothing size and those couple pounds make a HUGE difference. So here I am. Starting over so to speak. I'm going back to what worked so well.... Keeping my calories in range. Who wants to join me?
