i'm newly at maintenance and find it "not that hard" probably because i'm eating basically the same things all week that i lost weight with except for Fridays which is a free day (and has been for a long time) BUT..i am finding that i am having to constantly say NO to a BITE of this and a NIBBLE of that. I'm really wondering if 2 potato chips extra that day or a nibble off of my husbands muffin another day will really add up? maybe not but i know that i have to tell myself i CANNOT take it further than that and also have to keep all my snacking reserved solely for Fridays and not carry it over, i guess that will be my constant vigil for life.....
i'm trying hard to look at it as a GOOD thing and put a positive motivational spin on it instead of thinking of myself as a victim. i think that is the key but i have to work on that, also!! oy
