Maintenance

I think I am going to have to admit it. I am not at the point that I am determined to lose weight right now. I think the reality is, I need to let that go, and focus on keeping what I have for the moment. I have become so busy these past couple of months and have so much on my plate, that I have not been able to give weight loss the focus I once was. I think that in order to be realistic and not be in a situation that I am beating myself up, I just need to maintain what I have right now. So I think with that in mind, I am going to keep up my exercise and limit my caloric intake to 2000 a day. I am thinking once I get graduated and summer starts and I am down on my list of commitments, I will make the push for that last 15-20 pounds I want to lose. so here it is. I need help folks, help me just maintain my focus on maintenance. Please?

  2. Shane, you knew that you'd have to make the switch to maintenance mode at some point. Instead of looking it as a negative, think of it as AWESOME that you've made it this far. There's nothing wrong with learning to maintain and losing that last 15-20. What I wouldn't do to be there with you. You can do this. No back slides. Focus on getting through school and then this summer you can get busy. Law school is coming. It won't get easier. Remember, we have to learn to do this healthy living WHILE we're living our busy, hectic and wonderful lives.

  3. Does this mean that you've reached your goal weight, or are you just putting further weight loss on hold? Just curious (you were vague on this point). Maintenance is harder that you think it is, but you're going to do just fine. Remember to keep counting your calories and doing your exercise! It's all about balance, and as you know, that can be really tough. But we're all here for you!!

  4. I will be cheering you on, for sure. Maintaining is where the permanent changes happen, and solidifying what you have learned and earned.

  5. Shane you have to do what's best for you. If maintaining is where your heads at then go for it. Call it practice because that is what you will need to do!

  6. Yep, if maintaining is where you are at right now, then that is what you need to focus on. You've lost an incredible amount of weight and should be very proud of how far you have come.
