Default LA Weight Loss Maintenance...Please help!

Hi everyone!

This site is awesome! I've looked at it briefly off and on a few times, but just actually registered today. Good luck to all of you! Keep up the hard work!!

I used the LA weight loss purple plan back in 2006 and lost 35 lbs before my wedding (I never reached the stabilization or maintenance phases...just quick going). Of course, I got cocky since I reached my goal and threw away all of my materials and ended up regaining the 35 lbs. Shame on me!

Last year I found out that the center I went to was closing (when I finally decided I wanted to get back on track). I did manage to find and purchase all of the plans on ebay, so I'm ready to start fresh. The plans I received did come with stabilization and maintenance pages, but they are very generic. All of the sheets are photocopied from what looks to be a slightly older set of plans or maybe even Canadian ones, not sure. They are very similar to what I had before in my purple plan, so hopefully they should work.

I'm not sure how to handle the maintenance phase once I get back there, though. I've gained and lost weight hundreds of times, but have always struggled with maintenance! When I was going to the centers, they had a book on maintenance. Once when I cheated and had cheesecake, they told me that it was 2 starches, 1 dairy, and 3 fats. Does anyone know where I could find this information??? I'm sure I won't be giving up sweets forever!The maintenance sheets that I have only tell me how many fats, proteins, etc. I can have...not how to count them when you eat something other than what's in the weight loss plans. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks so much!!!
