    How long have people maintained for so far?? I think that's harder than losing the weight in the first place!

    You are right, maintaining is for life. Ive been around goal for 1 and a half years now, sometimes a bit over. Ive never put on more than a stone and have always taken steps to bring it back x

    Just over 2 years for me now at goal weight, I fluctuate about 4 pounds depending on my TOTM but usually just under 14 stone.

    I was joking but also serious, I tend to weigh around 3 pounds heavier at the start of the week than the end, partly because I drink less water at the weekends.

    Hi, I started in June 2006 and for some reason I always count from there as the last time I was 197. I have figured out how to eat more or less to maintain. If I put on then I do something straightaway as it's usually after hols or family visits. I once put on a load and went on CD for a few weeks and that worked - I keep away from red wine which for some reason piles on the weight.

    I was scary when I thought about maintaining - especially as people kept saying you'll put it on as fast as you lost it. This is not true, there's studies showing that this doesn't happen.

    I was helped knowing that if I got maintaining wrong I had CD in my toolkit.

    There is no average for me, thats a hard question, I could tell you what Ive eaten today but Im ill with a viral infection so its not been the best!!

    Fruit n fibre semi skimmed milk

    Tin of soup and a ham sandwich

    Chicken stir fry n garlic bread

    Frusili

    Banana

    I may have an options hot choc in a while.

    I try to vary, always have breakfast (unless Im in a mad rush) coz i love tesco fruit and fibre (hated it before cd!!)

    Try to eat fruit more!

    Dunno, its a hard one, I dont count calories anymore, I just try to make wise choices and eat when Im hungry, I [email protected] it up at times but then dont we all!!

    Man, that's dream food to me!

    I think if I stay low GI and relatively low carb after I finish SS, I should be able to maintain my weight. It sounds as if I'm passing the buck, but I honestly did gain my weight through medications.
