I was reading my feedly line up yesterday and came across Lisa's recent blog post at 110 Pounds and Counting about addressing a small weight gain from the summer. Here's the article.
Lisa has maintained her 110 pound weight loss for 4-5 years. Reversing a trend is a key trait in weight maintenance. There are diet style differences between many maintainers, however key actions such as looking back, honesty, going back to weight loss tools, looking at root causes are all things that long time maintainers have in common. Bravo to Lisa for course correcting quickly.
Great example. We are stronger together. So important to take the time to look back and evaluate life, in-puts to the process, out-puts to the process, and solutions. I have more blog posts in my head about this topic and some examples of my own.
Yoni Freedhoff's demonstration of how much sugar is really in Nutella. A good reminder and another reason why I do not do moderation. No wonder I stayed stuck. Sugar effects both my weight and my thinking.

And a blog post from Dr. Sharma about the article that shows why weight maintenance rather than weight gain has better long term outcomes. My own experience: I still feel better maintaining at a lower, normal weight. I remember maintaining in the 150's, 170's, and even 180's and while I might have reduced my health risks- I was not putting life into living. It is and was worth the effort in weight loss for me.
Mid-week cooking tip: If you wear head phones and leave them in front of you while sauteing vegetables, they may get too hot! The volume control and on and off may stop working. Sigh. Back to the Mac store. Good reminder to tie back long hair, long sleeves, clothing, including electronics.
