Thanks for the info about "maintainers." I'll certainly look that up.
Things that change on goal? Well, once you reach goal you are given the 1200 calorie diet of foods that you should eat. It's basically all the food that is now included on stabilization. It looks like Weight Watchers in that you are to have two dairy a day and such.
The tricky part for me is that once again there is more choice. Somehow, I feel like I did better OP when it was so structured. What I am doing now is staying OP for most of the time and go off program when dining out, etc. I do weigh myself daily since I am so afraid that the weight will return.
I am looking at all the money that I've spent with the program and I hope that motivation helps me to maintain. Plus, of course, the health benefits and how much better I feel now.
Good luck with the program. And, check with your doctor when you can to make sure that you are not having any health issues.
