Maintenance is, without a doubt, the most difficult part of weight loss. I’ve been here before, more than once actually, and have always dropped the ball on this. I stopped watching what I was eating, how much I was eating, and stopped monitoring my weight.
Not this time is my new mantra.
I am slowing adding foods back into my daily eating, or have slightly upped the amount I have been eating, and so far I’ve stayed right at my goal weight (I was under last week). Weight Watchers says I should try to eat 32 points per day, but I’ve pretty much been sticking with 29, and that seems to be working, for now.
This will be the last of my weekly weight check-ins, mainly because I think that reading about someone maintaining their weight loss is about as fascinating as watching paint dry. I will post how I am doing once a month though as it will help keep me focused on maintaining what I’ve lost.
