I recently read a helpful forum post about maintenance, which quotes a statement
frequently used by me. This post is quoted below:
"Being fat is hard.
Losing weight is hard.
Keeping off weight is hard.
Pick your hard."
If you want to keep off the weight you lost, you can never go back to exactly the way you were before. You have to keep living a changed life.
You have to figure out what you're willing to "pay" to keep off the weight. You're not going to pay in money but you're going to pay in time & in having to consider your choices. You will likely pay in some loss of spontaneity and thoughtlessness. Others will be able to eat unthinkingly and you probably never will.
That is, of course, if you like your life at a lower weight, and you are willing to make the tradeoff to stay there.
