Bike commute

Bike commuting is a good way to get in some cardio training and even intervals, if you're so inclined!

Don't Be Afraid to Eat

When I first started maintenance there were many foods I had avoided for months. A good SparkFriend who had lost over 100 pounds said, "There is nothing you can eat today that means you'll wake up fat tomorrow." When you continue to track your food, nothing is off limits.

My night time joy

I have a cup of my favorite herbal tea from the health food store.It helps with my immune system and gives me the anti oxidants I need plus it helps with elimination in the morning.I have tried to drink warm water with lemon but it doesn't taste like anything.It also keeps my weight down. emoticon

Live it the way you lost it!

Once you hit goal, don't think you can "go back to eating the way you used to." You have a little more freedom, but it's not a huge amount. Stick with that activity plan, stick with all those healthy foods you found. You'll need 'em forever.

Eat In Smaller Plate

I found by eating in a salad plate rather than a regular plate I am eating smaller portions and I drink a glass of water which makes me full therefore causing me not to want to eat more than I should. When I am done eating I don't feel stuffed and miserable, rather I am satisfied and very happy.

Set New Goals

My first maintenance goal was to increase exercise to burn 400 calories per day, based on an article about maintaining. After 8 weeks, my reward was a new scale. My current goal is to build muscle and reduce body fat percentage. Also, to reduce sweetener to 4 packets or less per day.

Share your experience

You're even more likely to continue your good habits if others know what you've accomplished. I love sharing my Spark experience with anyone who will listen. It keeps me keeping on.

reduce your intake of saturated fats;
eliminate transfats;
replace refined sugars with natural sweeteners;
increase intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds;

Go Nuts!

Eat a small handful of walnuts or almonds 30 min. before a meal and you won't be as hungry. Also great for an afternoon snack- gets the brain "full" . I also eat with my oatmeal and salads. They are the best filler-upper!!! emoticon
