    Nice post. I believe that substance abuse is a major problem that needs to be addressed not only by the person suffering from addiction but by their loved ones and the community as a whole. Someone with substance abuse problem must find understanding from their significant others. They can also find a supportive community like AA meetings for alcoholics (here’s a comprehensive list of AA meetings in US: http://sober.com/aa-alcoholic-anonymous-me
    etings.html or a helpful treatment facility, halfway houses, and sober houses for people with drug addiction(for a complete list of these facilities you can check www.sober.com). - 11/8/2012 10:50:07 PM

  • I love this article! It has really helped me make the switch from losing weight to maintenance. As indicated in the article, transitioning to maintenance is such a mind boggler. But again, this article is very helpful. I am so dog on thankful for SP. - 12/8/2011 9:24:41 PM
  • Dean, I always get a lot out of your articles. This week I've been anxious as I realize I am going to meet my goal before the year's end, and I want to prepare NOW for maintenance. This article is just what I needed! Thanks for providing some direction for this new path. - 3/24/2011 1:07:55 PM

    I am so glad I found this article. I think I am in a form of weight maintenance now. I have lost 20lbs and still losing - I was contemplating how to maintain the weight loss. And now I know! Just keep doing what I did to lose the weight. It's just that simple! - 5/21/2010 10:40:01 AM
  • Thank you Coach Dean. I have been maintaining for over a year now, after 55 lbs, and it doesn't get any easier. I teach/lead a weight loss group on our (AZ) border and ride my bike regularly, still put my food in, and am playing with about 5 lbs. Nice to see you dealing with this. I sometimes feel like there is not enough on SP for those in the maintenance phase. - 9/16/2009 5:27:56 PM
  • Thanks for this article and all your others. I only like 4 pounds til I reach my goal weight and my plans are just what you suggested. Keep tracing my meals, get my exercise, stay on Spark People to help others on thier journey to a healthier lifestyle and meeting their goals. Keep up the good work Coach Dean!!!! - 8/25/2009 11:46:31 AM

  • I'm just moving into maintenance stage, and am not really sure how to do it -- this helped with general ideas, but how do I figure out new calorie goals and realistic exercise goals? I am not tempted (at the moment) to go back to the old habits, but I also don't want to lose much more, and am not quite sure how to find the new/safe/maintenance ranges. Any more specific suggestions? - 7/11/2009 1:32:01 PM
  • Thanks for this article. It's very encouraging. I've been maintaining for a while now and I have become "disoriented" as the article puts it, without a goal to achieve. Since starting school last fall however, my new goal was to maintain a 4.0 GPA and I did it! I'm working for it again this semester. I take pride in the fact that I maintain a healthy lifestyle while in school. - 2/1/2009 3:05:39 PM
