Keep up that routine...I did for 8 months and then got loosey goosey and bam! Lesson learned here now back to what I know works in maintenance.

For the 8 months that I stayed in maintenance and kept it off...I always followed cheat days with phase 1 days and kept it off and followed week long vacations with 4-5 days of phase 1. But I stopped that routine 2 months ago and it has caught up with me.

I am doing 8 perfect days and yes the first few were probably fluid loss...but oh that feels so good and so much less bloated. I am then having a cheat day and then doing another 8 perfect days and then hoping to jump back into my old routine.

Being almost a year out in maintenance is very challenging. I was thinking everything would be perfect forever.

: each 5 gone!
[url=] a lifetime of health...and to a time when I can have a real toast...but in moderation!
