While I'm technically not quite in maintenance mode, I have slipped in and out of it (in a funny way, if you consider stops along the path during the journey of weight loss), and I've noticed that there are HUGE differences in these areas, depending on how I am handling these bouts of maintenance.
-attention to nutrients
-attention to consistent exercise
-attention to sodium
These main points are like a compass to where my body will go - meaning,
-what my body composition is like
-influences positive and negative outlook
-inactive pain being generated (headaches, etc)
-how strong or weak my body feels
I wanted to join this team because of my observations. And knowing that I can do better- not just at losing weight, but at maintaining it, no matter where it falls on the scale.
I am only 10 pounds above my lowest weight so far- one that I reached 2 years ago, so that has been my practice run.
Anyone with similar experiences? Like, maintaining weight is one thing, and while related, maintaining fitness is another. I'm sure that maintaining fitness is a key component to maintaining weight loss, too.
