Secrets of Success

What Maintenance Means



Maintenance does not mean perfection each and every day of our lives. It means staying in the ballpark! We stay in the game and we manage our foods and activity so that our weight stays within a couple of pounds of our goal weight. Maintenance is about living life how we enjoy it and fitting our eating into our lifestyle. Changes yes, but not a life of total restriction. Maintenance, Life is grand!

  • I wish we could find a better word than "maintenance" for this challenging time - one less associated with mopping floors or fixing something which is broken or cutting the grass. Let's take the dread out of keeping our fitness under control! - by MILLEDGE2
    Thank you for this awesome comment. It is so positive and inspiring. I'm 2 pounds away from maintenance. This is exactly what I needed to get in the right mindset for maintenance. - by KHAYNES72
    I agree, wholeheartedly! Maintenance is where we know what to do, how to do it and simply - DO IT! - by BEMORESTUBBORN
