weighing myself daily

I've always kept on track when i weigh in daily. For me as soon as i start skipping days the weight starts piling on. For me, the reason not to weigh is because I feel guilty over a meal or just ate too much. I know weight will flucuate on a daily basis and I only track it satudays but I still find it best for me to weigh in daily. That's my maintenance secret:)

Eating out

Asking for a carryout container to be brought with your meal will discourage overeating. I pack half right away so I dont end up full, guilty and bloated. emoticon

Don't be afraid to make adjustments

In six months or so I've maintained, my weight has been stable in the 160-165 range. But my nutrition guidelines have varied by 25% based on my injury and exercise status. I've had calorie ranges from 2200-2550, up to 2900-3250. If I see the weight moving in one direction, I change the calorie limit in the other direction.

If I know I'll be getting less exercise (e.g., injury prevents running), I'll proactively reduce the calorie range before the weight appears.

Find Kindred Spirits

The old song line "I get by with a little help from my friends" definitely applies to staying the course beyond reaching goal. Finding Spark teams that focus on maintaining motivation to maintain (At Goal and Maintaining, to name the first I joined) and meeting Spark friends in person, even across miles and states has helped keep the maintenance journey as fresh as the excitement of losing it in the first place.

Keep Tracking

I have found that in order to stay on track for maintenance I need to need to keep tracking what I eat and my activity. Last weekend I had a very busy day, over 25,000 steps, biking, lawn mowing, walking, and had kept to my average calorie intake. The next day I was at work and a half a dozen times when I started walking around after sitting for a while, I was light headed. I have found that I need to track what I eat to not only keep my weight down, but make sure I am eating enough.

Shake It Off

. I've never been big on meal replacement shakes but i recently cam acroos the Vi-Shape shake. These are AMAZING! You can literally create any flavor you want, not to mention the protien and the nutrition its packed with.

I started out replacing two meal per day with these shakes. Mainly breakfast and lunch, since i work nights. Then i would eat a snack mid morning and mid afternoon the eat just about whatever

Staying With SparkPeople!

I've been very cautious about making big changes once I reached my goal weight. Staying with SparkPeople is at the top of my list. I'm still drinking lots of water, eating 5-6 freggies a day, and exercising 250-300 minutes a week, as well as tracking food and staying in calorie range. No foods are off limits, but healthy eating and regular exercise got me here; I'm not regaining that 57 lbs!
