Welcome to the Maintainers Forum, Barbara! We're honored to have you join our little outpost of maintenance!
It's tremendously exciting for us to have you as a resource, especially while so many of us are in the process of reading your book. We all appreciate you taking the time to respond in such a detailed and understandable way and to share your many years of expertise with us. I know that all of us felt lost once we entered the maintenance phase of weight loss for precisely the reason you mentioned -- there's nothing out there for us! I'm saddened but not at all surprised by the response you got from publishers about there being no need for a book about maintenance, so huge thanks for stepping into the breach.
I'm looking forward to joining in the discussion as soon as I finish the book.
