On both the old WW Plan and the exchange system you had to have two glasses of milk a day, or it's equivalent as listed on the exchange list. If you were getting ready for bed at night and realized you had only had one glass of milk, you had to go down to the kitchen and drink the second glass of milk. It wasn't optional.
On maintenance I find that I might overeat something, and compensate by eliminating milk, which is bad for someone my age with bone loss issues. Since we are in Lent, I am back on my tracking exchanges, weighing and measuring, just like I did when I was losing. And I am getting my 2 cups of milk per day, occasionally more if I want to bump it up as a bonus selection, but never less. This is why I would have been bad at points: my chooser isn't too good if I have too many choices, whether it's food or clothes, or things to do.
No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
