The possibility of regaining scares the #$% out of me! Been there, done that! And the three times I've lost before, I not only regained, I put back on 30 to 40 additional pounds each time.

This is what I finally realized I must do. In the past I dieted without a long term plan. I lost, but then I eventually regained. Most of the time I started regaining before I ever reached my goal. My long term maintenance will be very similar to what I am doing now, but with less restrictions.
