    I am doing the maintenance steps and this is the first week of 1200. I am going away for the weekend and fancy treating myself to fish and chips one evening. I would remove the batter.
    I havent cheated at all (apart from a minute sliver of a piece of choc cake).

    What is the worse that could ahppen?

    Personally Hercules, woprse that can happen is you bloody enjoy them.

    Not like you will be eating them all day everyday, and as long as you moderate the rest of the days intake and take on yoiur fluids -- i;d enjoy.

    Hello hercules, I dont think that you will do that much damage. You are on maintinence and your body is getting used to the exra calories. Granted it might be a slight carb fest but just think how well you have done so far. As long as this is your one off weekend away special (and not the start of a snowball effect!) why not enjoy it this once.
    Also as you will be returning to a 'normal' diet before long it might be good for you to see how it feels to have the occasional treat. Let's face it, we all have those special occasions now and then.
    Whatever you decide to do, best of luck and have a great weekend away.

    Thanks for replies. I guess I'm worried it will be the beginning of the end but I will have to start eating normally again very soon asyou say. I'm just not convinced I'll be able to keep the weight of long term as I am still always dreaming about stuffing my face.

    You will. Just remember how you felt when you were overweight. How did overeating make you feel? Good? Maybe for a minute, but if you're anything like me it feels terrible. Worse than having to opt for a chicken salad over a burger!
    Keep thinking positive. You have made it to maintenance, you'll be fine.

    Yes, that's true. I could eat a burger and chips in a cafe and feel good for a few moments stuffed with grease and then discuss with my mum for the next hour how much I shouldnt have done that. AT lesat on this diet I've never woken uyp in the morning regretting the day before. Your posts have been really helpful, thankyou.
