The best tips and advice for life after weight loss. If you do not have a weight-loss goal, how do you maintain a healthy weight?
If you use the Calorie Differential Over Time (Start/Reports) you can see at a glance where your trouble days were.
I brought up the differential chart for the months Nov-Apr and I can see clearly where I was struggling during the winter months!!
when i feel like having a snack, i have the habit of wanting something crunchy and sweet, so i find my favorite yougurt/low fat and i add grape nuts cereal to it. This combination cures my sweet tooth, and the grapenuts give me that constant crunch that potato chips give me.
The only thing I can say is that since day one, I changed my thoughts to "this is how I will eat for the rest of my life", not just some short term fix. Yes, now, I can eat just a little more, but really not much more that throughout the entire weight loss process. 100+ lbs lost and maintaining.
I have to really pray and concentrate in order to keep the weight off!!
Three things are important in maintenance:
1. Portion control
2. Portion control
3. Portion control
If I come up short on protein and carbohydrates, I add a snack of four low-sodium crackers and a slice of part-skim mozzarella cheese. Getting enough calories and nutrients is just as important as not eating too much.
I remember the pain each battle we had to keep loved ones alive.. They cared enough to call me out before dying to take care for myself. They will not be forgotten or die in vain- what will it take you to sober up?
Pain is a strict master- my family mattered.
I weigh myself everyday and sometimes twice a day if I do not like what the scale says.
I AM MAINTAING MY WEIGH RIGHT HERE WHERE I AM NOW FOR 2 YEARS NOW.
BUT WHAT I WANT TO SAY IS KEEP TRACING FOOD EVERYDAY AND EXERCISE LOOK BACK AT WHAT YOU ATE TO SEE WHERE YOU ARE GOING RIGHT OR WRONG.
DONOT GET COMFORTABLE AND THINK I CAN EAT WHAT EVER I WANT BECAUSE IT IS NOT SO.
Weight maintenance is easy once you realize that you changed your eating and lifestyle habits which changed your body weight. Most assuredly, you must never deviate from changing the former to maintain the latter.
