    Smile Just Thought I'd Pop In...

    Hi guys. Some of you may recognise me from my previous visits to this forum. I reached goal just under 2 years ago on a combination of Lighter Life and Slim and Save. I lost over 9 stone and got to my goal weight of 10 stone. I struggled with maintenance. I think one problem with the diet is that it helps you to lose weight but doesn't teach you how to maintain weight. Over the 6 months or so after reaching goal I put on around 2 stone. For the last 18 months I've pretty much maintained that weight and today I am 12 stone 3 lbs. I don't want to be 10 stone (I was too thin at that weight) but I would like to be 11.5 stone (or perhaps 11 - not sure yet). I'm losing that weight through calorie control and exercise because it's only around 10 lbs and I now love my exercise so much that I wouldn't want to give it up (!!!!!).

    I just wanted to pop on and wish you all the best of luck and give you one true life tale of maintenance. Is maintenance hard? Yes. Does everyone put all of the weight back on again? No. Is it worth it? Absolutely!
    Lost 130lbs from July 2011 to June 2012. Have been maintaining since then but now have returned to lose the extra I put on whilst trying to work out how to maintain!

    Weasey how lovely to read an update from you! Fab that you have done the even hardest bit of maintaining and are doing well to shift the small amount you have to shift. I guess maintenance will have small gains here and there but it controlling them and not allowing them to spiral out of control we need to aim for - and Yup! I am still trying. x
