My motto, "Awareness is all," says it in one sentence. Being aware of everything you put in your mouth, of your physical activity, of how your body feels, are keys to maintenance. And crucial to that awareness is HONESTLY evaluating and recording all your foods and physical activities.
Keeping a food journal is the key to weight maintenance. When you plan your food daily you will be sure to get all the food groups covered and keep you from eating food that could cause you to regain the weight.
