    I'm a happy bunny today ladies :D After messing about since July trying to lose the 3 lb I'd gone over target, this week I had a fab loss of 2.5 lb and got back to my actual Target weight.

    I guess the reason for my post is this, being at target isn't easy for me and since July I've gone up to 10st 5 but only as low as 10st 1, never back to 10 st. It's been hard work maintaining this weight but I was determined this week to get there so this is what I did......

    I stuck to it! I had red days, green days, EE days, and even a mix 2 max day. I had almost 15 syns every day and varied my foods. I didn't reduce anything, I didn't go without, I didn't cut anything out of the plan, I followed the plan as it should be followed and I flippin well got the result I wanted!

    So, for any of you who are struggling I would say, don't try to hard, just follow the plans, don't try any fancy tricks and reap the rewards cos it works! :p

    Leapfrog just beat me to it!!! Thanks so much for your post Jaylou. As you know, I'm struggling to get back into target range, let alone my actual target! And it's NOT that I've set my target too low - I've just been diagnosed with osteoporosis, and found out that I've actually shrunk 2" in height, so my target should be even lower, but I'm not confessing that yet! At least I now know why several pairs of trousers that I wore last year suddenly seem too long, despite altering the waistband. If only we shrunk widthwise...!!!

    Many thanks again for your advice.

    I completely agree miss jelly tot. Losing the weight doesn't seem like the easy bit but in comparison (and in hindsight) it is! The target bit is a complete change and also an acceptance of the fact that you need to work hard to maintain and that you can't stop "dieting".

    Good luck getting back there hun. x

    Well done Jaylou!!
    Must admit, I'm looking forward to reaching Target, but dreading it at the same time, cos I understand how maintaining must be hard work. It takes time to find that balance, I assume. But well done you, and everyone else who is on the path of maintenance!

    Well done Jaylou. We all seen to forget that when we get to target we still have to eat a healthy diet to maintain.
