    Thanks for sharing
  • Great Suggestions and I will be saving this and printing it out for a friend as well. I will probably always track my foods so that I can keep an eye on what I am eating as well as making sure that I am not straying from what has been working to reduce my blood pressure and cholesterol.

    Some good suggestions, printed out so I can plan for when I reach my goal, 10 lbs. more or three months away.
  • Good ideas. Still working on getting to that stage.
  • I have been in maintenance for over 10 years now with the usual blips and bumps up and down. The trick is to catch it early (within 5 pounds) and adjust..
  • I wish I read this article before I went on maintenance. I have gained about 8 pounds due to stress eating and also I had the flu for a while so did not exercise for 3 weeks. I feel my but getting bigger 😆. I need to get a hold on myself and get back to my excercise routine as I have worked too hard to get back to where I am coming from.
  • I've been at or under my goal for over 3 years and definitely agree that exercise is key & I do a lot more now. Didn't change much in the way of food and still track everything.
  • Great article I am in magnance have been for about 1 1/2 year now. I found I am doing a lot of these things but it is a good reminder to keep it going.
  • I have about two more pounds remaining to my first goal, which was to lose 20 pounds, which was about 10% of my weight. I plan to maintain that first goal for a while, not losing weight, for ... I don't know how long. A few weeks? A few months? I don't know. I have head, and common sense tells me, that it is best not to try to lose all the weight at once, but to do it in steps. Anyway, I am glad for any information to help me maintain my weight for a while.
  • Reading theses now even though I still have about 150 pounds left to go. I want this kinda of stuff to be just as natural as the NEW changes I had to make for my weight loss (50 Lbs so far) by the time I get to my goal. I looks like it boils down to don't give up and don't stop paying attention to your body. But keep the articals coming so i can get all the facts as i get there.
  • Just read this and found that it is what I am doing. It is nice to know you go it right.

    It is now 2 1/2 years around the same weight
  • Great article. I hope when I reach my maintenance that I stay there.
  • Hmmm, these comments are from quite some time ago, lots of concerns about having to burn so many calories and how unrealistic that is. I am getting ready for maintenance mode...hope to be there in about two or three weeks at most (though the last few pounds take a lot longer). I have gained/lost gained/lost so many times and this is the last time, so I am really trying to be prepared and knowledgeable about this. I really liked this article and I thought that the calorie burn was on target. Right now I generally burn about 4,000 to 5,000 a week through exercise and I am not a hugely obsessive exerciser. I fully understand that I am doing this for life....I might be able to back off a little when I get to my goal weight but I expect to still be burning a good number each week. Also, I am not some spring chicken...I am pushing 50 and have never really loved exercise....this CAN be done!
