Maintenance is an ongoing endeavor that requires care and attention. I realize this will be like an ongoing practice that I will be be working at for the rest of my life. I’m ok with that. I would rather do this than live my life 93 pounds heavier.
While I may be battling within a five pound range of where I would like to be, it’s nothing compared to what I’ve already accomplished. I’m learning that when I overindulge one day, I have to eat leaner the next. Again, easier said than done – but the essential thing is that it can be done.
So whether you are in the “I’m on track and losing weight” phase or the “I’m trying to get back on track to losing” phase or “I’m just trying to hold steady” or even, “I am unhappy with my results” phase you are ok. Please know whatever phase, know that no matter what, you are worthy of personal happiness and self-love. It’s all up to you.
