Wow well done for the mantaining!! all tips welcome! xx


Here we go again!
Well done ladies! Truly inspirational. I think for most of us the maintaining is the scary bit, the losing is the easy bit (if anyone can call this easy) and the maintaining is the scary, looming part. Still looking forward to refeeding and reaching my goal like you two. Well done and keep up the good work, you both look great!
Thanks for all your lovely replies, am really delighted with myself and can't believe it was so long ago I started LT, Didn't think I would last a day on it. Maintaining is defo the hardest part though and so different for each person, some do WW some do Low GI or Atkins, but once you realise its a LIFETIME CHANGE, you will get there. I think thats the hardest part, realising that for the rest of your life you will have to watch what you eat, especially if like me, the smell of food puts weight on!!! I did Low GI for the first few months, then allowed myself the odd sweet thing too. I try to stick to 3 meals a day which I never did before..I grazed throughout the day. I weigh myself most days just to make sure, I don't worry if I cam up a pound or two as I think thats completely normal, but if I go more than that I am extra careful and work harder in the gym. I am only too glad to offer whatever advice I can, I can only say what worked for me though, so feel free to pm me and I can give you my msn or facebook, if you ever need a chat. Good Luck!!!
