Having lost 2st and maintained it for sixteen months, I then struggled a bit last month and went up by five unwanted pounds and was slightly worried that I might be losing my grip on maintenance!!
So, for ten days I cut back to 1300 cals and did NOT eat back any exercise calories. Thrilled to say that yesterday morning I weighed in at 9st 9, my lowest since about 1996 !!
However we spent the rest of yesterday visiting my 73 year old sister, who is not very well and currently relaxing in Devon, and last night I had wonderful fish n'chips and wine with her....
But, no worries, this is real life and I just want to reassure people that Maintenance is not a static figure, it fluctuates up and down , just make sure that the "ups" are no more than 3-4 pounds before taking proper action!
