    Hi All.
    Question, how do you maintain your weight when you reach your target?
    Since I started SW I have lost weight every week! so how do I stop?
    Do I have a day where I eat say chip shop fish & chips?
    Any ideas from people who have successfully maintained please!

    I've been maintaining for just over 2 months, and I tend to stick to plan, which is mainly red days for me, Monday to Thursday, and then be more lenient with myself over the weekend.
    It seems to be working for me, but not everyone is the same:confused:

    It's easier than you think! My weight coming off started to even itself out, when you get to target you prob don't have too much more fat to lose - if you just stick to your free foods and syns then it is so easy to keep it off! I got to my target last Jan and have stayed within a lb or 2 ever since, just by eating healthily!

    Have maintaned for 1 year now by increasing my HEB. If I gain at weigh in I am careful the following week and if I loose I have a treat. Its playing by ear, no hard and fast rules. Good luck.

    I am at first week so I am thinking the same Bilsat and I have lost every week so to suddenly stop and maintain seems harder. Fingers crossed I can do it.

    I would try to stick to plan as much as possible but I would maybe have some extra milk because I'm a teacher and we have about 5 coffees a day lol! I don't necessarily have 1/3 superfree either, just stick to free! Superfree is good for loosing weight but I don't need to loose anymore so free is good for me :)

    Yes get hassle Linzi I dropped my weight and three dress sizes rapidly so people keep going on. Its usually very overweight friends or acquaintances. I keep saying I am heavier now still by half a stone than what I was for over 20 years before weight gain. But people still say I'm too thin.
    I am small in height so I think it gets noticed.

    2 pounds under target, but away on holiday next week so it should even out but this week I have had two b's and wine at the weekend that took me over syns so not sure how I lost 2 pounds. This is going to be tricky for a bit.
