What is your maintenance secret?

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

I am really struggling with maintenance. I have been at my goal weight before then put 10-15 pounds back on and started over (repeat ad nauseum). I really don't want to screw it up this time. I am finding, though, that I am really obsessing over it and I don't think that is healthy either.

I know that logging my food is crucial, but don't want to be obsessive about it either. I want to set a healthy example for my kids without being over the top. I welcome any advice from current maintainers, as well as folks who have their maintenance plans in place for when they get there.

Thanks, SparkFriends!

    I also love clean eating, it just gives you the freedom to make good choices that you do not have to log or fret about. WW has worked for me as well, once you get the points down, it is a no brainer. You can do this.

    What helped me was following Tosca Reno's Eat Clean plan. It really gave me an appreciation for portion sizes and what I should be eating to lose or maintain. Very easy to follow and it helped me branch out and eat intuitively so I wouldn't have to keep tracking. It takes a few months to get into the habit, but it can be done and it's such a relief when it doesn't feel like so much work to maintain. emoticon
