Here's a side view of 9 moths of maintenance. Sill rocking the Danskos
Eating very little processed foods- Paleo diet, exercising regularly- Primal lifestyle, getting the mental game in check- adopting what works from other maintainers, changing the way I deal with stress- the answer is not in the snack cabinet. All of these new behaviors and techniques really make a difference.
Anyone who thinks that you WILL regain after a big weight loss- well that might happen. It's not easy, but successful weight maintenance can be done in many cases. And it's certainly worth a try. Lots of people do- Weight Watcher's long time lifetime members, successful lap banders, Take Shape for Life Coaches, total transformation bloggers & cross-fitters, clean eaters, bicycle riders, gym rats. There is no one way. There is only the right way for you.
Because if you tell yourself you can't, you probably won't. If you tell yourself you will find a way no matter what, you probably will. I've had some people tell me I can't. And to that, I say- WATCH ME.
Because I cannot even remember the person in the photo below. And, it's only been a year and a half. And, I needed to know that there were other maintainers out there who were successful. Before I took the first steps... We are stronger together.
