A very true statement.

I've found that most people don't want to hear the truth - that maintenance looks the same as "dieting..." ie, it's a lifestyle change. Many people hold out hope that they can diet, lose that 20lbs, and then go back to eating loosely. It's deluded, but I was one of those people.

I still weigh and measure and track every thing I eat, from two skittles to a serving of cereal. Absolutely. I can't estimate to save my life, so the scale is crucial. I even have a small one in my desk drawer at work.

I'm with Glory, balancing your checkbook is considered financially savvy and responsible, but counting calories is crazy? Not to me.

I agree 100%, been maintaining for 9 years now. I still count calories and weigh. I understand it's hard when people tease etc. Usually I try and keep it to myself. It has always worked for me
