These two are my favorites, especially # 3. It is hard to accept that what I worked so hard to lose the weight, I really need to keep doing the same way I did to lose the weight.

2.Keep doing what you’re doing

Keep tracking your food, planning your meals, drinking your water and scheduling your exercise. Change your mindset so that these are not things you do to lose weight - they are your normal everyday habits. If you lost weight with Weight Loss Resources, you've got a great tool to help your transition into Weight Loss Maintenance. Change your user settings so maintenance is your goal, then carry on!


3.Accept that you're in this for life

Many people make the mistake of thinking, ‘Now I’m at a goal I can go back to eating normally’. But if you want to stay in your new slinky jeans there is no going back. You need to have a new definition of normal. Which leads us to...



I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!

Excellent tips!!

I especially liked this one:

Talking to yourself helps too! When faced with the workplace chocolates or a second helping of dinner I try to pause. How will I feel five minutes after that’s gone? Am I really hungry? Do I really want it? The self-talk helps prevent mindless eating, although I admit that some days I cave in if it’s a really special piece of cake!

Sometimes I do indulge, I don't call it caving but only after I have answered the above questions. I guess it would be a planned cave. And the list to write down to remind me just what all the benefits about maintaining my weigh are!! Great Idea.

I actually weigh my self every day now...........

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways, and He will direct your path!
What you eat in private, You wear in public.

It is smart, while you still lose weight, to know more about maintenance, and to understand what needs to be done when reaching it.
Here are excellent tips. Enjoy
