Maintenance Update Reaction - Successful

Friday, November 16, 2012

With the start of November, I noted weight gain not just maintenance. I put my original and simple action plans back into place: drink water, eat out less, be active. I returned to walking/running at the Y before picking my daughter up from their after school care center. I have managed to get 4-5 workouts a week in this way. I need the rest days and the flexibility to schedule meetings and appointments. I am cooking for more than half our meals and I have regular breakfast/lunch./snack items for packing again (healthy leftovers, greek yogurt, peanut butter cheese crackers, granola bars, apples, etc.)

I am back to my original maintenance weight, things are fitting better again, and I believe I may be leaving my plateau towards my goal weight again. The fresh start was quite motivating!

    Good job! I'm not at maintenance yet, but I am starting to wonder how it will be to worry about staying, instead of going down. it is nice to see that you are able to manage it well. Thanks for sharing your experience!
