I decided when I started back in September, that in order to sustain what I am doing I am not cutting anything out and nothing is forbidden or banned (not even crisps - my ultimate weakness!). My motto now is everything in moderation. I have cut down my portions and am trying to increase my exercise. Am just interested to know if anyone else is doing the same as many of the January 'diet' programmes seem to be advocating quite restrictive eating regimes. I know I've not lost a lot or particularly quickly but it seems to be heading in the right direction. Just interested to know, especially from maintainers or people near their target what you have found in terms of your own mottos, rules or things that have worked for you. Thank you.
