Default It is official now..... I am a maintainer!

Good Morning Ladies! I had posted a couple times before in this section, but I felt I wasn't being fair to myself. But, it is official now..... I hit goal on Friday (maintained over the weekend) and now I am here to scoop up some tips from the long time maintainers. I am bound and determined that one day I will be a long time maintainer.... but to get to that point I have to take it one day at a time.

I got up this AM, I did my usual work out routine. I did not eat my "usual" breakfast this AM, however I do plan to go back to it. I just wanted a break for the day. (I ate a bagel instead of oatmeal). I plan to eat my usual lunch and a light supper.

So, anyone have any great tidbits of advise?

I look forward to meeting all of you.

Tammy

Hi Tammy,

Congratulations!!! I don't have any great advice to give as I'm not always very eloquent with words. I've been here for five years and am still soaking up all the advice and experience I can get too. I suppose my advice would be, enjoy maintenance, and also, know that it is just a different part of the same journey. Glad you've joined us!

Megan

Welcome Tammy! Congratulations on your loss!

Please join us on the chat thread and any other threads that you'd like. There are a few stickies in the maintainers forum that have a lot of good advice and collective wisdom!

Welcome and good luck . I had the same questions that you have. I was shocked to learn that you maintain your weight loss the same way you lost it . What a concept ! I never tried that before and never maintained. I still plan my meals ahead of time, still count calories , still exercise . I have an occaisional treat but for the most part, it is plan, count, exercise. And it works. When I fail to do that the scale starts creeping up.

Thank you all. I know I don't want to let the scale creep up..... so I am here for the long haul.

I know it is a "mental" thing.... I am hungrier than normal today. BUT, I am not giving into that beast.

Tammy
