    I tend to stick to vodka and diet mixers of any kind for the least calories. Hope you have a good time.

    Yup stick to spirits & diet coke/tonic for the best low cal option usually around 52cals for a 25ml shot.

    Well done on your losses and getting through refeed. Keeping track of food till you find the balance that works for you will help set a good maintenance pattern.
    Enjoy your outings. Wine spritzers or a spirit with slimline mixer is best. Beers and ciders are heavy on the cals. Enjoy!

    Hi Mandy and welcome to maintenance :)

    Well done on losing whilst on refeed - how did you get on when on TFR? How long were you on it for?

    I agree with the advice already given about alcohol. You'll probably find 1 or 2 are all you can manage anyway the first time drinking after TFR & refeed so to be honest I'd say have what you REALLY fancy and enjoy it - you deserve it. Then, if you're going to be drinking regularly (like many of us around here ;)) make your choices based on calories. Just my opinion hon. Enjoy whatever you do :) x

    Well done on your loss hon - brilliant!

    We're all learning all the time - I don't think we can ever assume we know it all - that's a slippery slope back to where we've come from imho xx

    I honestly could take it or leave it, I feel like my taste buds have changed while on TFR. How about you? Are you maintaining long?

    This is my 3rd year now, weight is up a little from when I finished, but overall, still happy with my weight and size. If I do over indulge, I try to be as good as possible for the next few days to compensate, its something you have to work at for a lifetime I would guess.

    Definitely a lifetime's work as Mary says. However, if you feel you can take it or leave it maybe you'll find it easier :)
