    I noticed there are quite a few returners to CD and wondered how many people here have achieved their goal and maintained their weight? How hard/easy was it?

    I've maintained. How easy or hard was it? Ummm. I had my 'throwing toys out of cot' moments, but it gets easier and easier :)

    Moving up the steps properly will set you in good stead. No, it's not a guarantee but it will definitely help. Take that from someone who tried to do it her own way... :) We've learned how not to eat in SS+, steps teach you how to eat.

    isnt there that P*ss poor planning provides poor performance or something?
    I think the same can be said for the way i would like to eat in the future...not that i'm at maintenance yet mind.
    I'm already planning my steps up to maintenance with menu plans etc....and i think planning a weekly menu might be "MY" way forward to maintain...

    It was your ticker that made me do one too hun! I cant wait to go!
    What you doing about the diet when your there?
    I'm gonna take tetra's with me, but i really want to eat breakfast and dinner as a "normal" person would and accept any gains the following week....
    is that bad that i'm planning on eating when i'm there?

    Yep, takeaways, burgers and even chocolate! I believe in placing no restrictions on the types of food I eat as long as it is all in moderation. So I don't low carb, or low fat, or high fibre. I just eat a balanced diet and within that there is space for a little junk food from time to time.
