I'd be down for an auto generated "Hannah maintained her +/- goal weight for x number of days" post on my MFP feed! I'm really proud of myself for being able to maintain my weight for the last year and some change, especially since the likelihood of gaining all of your weight back after losing is so high. It IS hard because without having a goal to work towards (the number on the scale) it's so easy to just let all your good habits slip.

Have been through three holiday seasons on maintenance. I fluctuate between the same 3 pounds and have for those three years. Maintenance can be a real pain, but once you get used to it, it is easy. Want to eat more today? Exercise more today. Have a cold or the flu? Eat a bit less. As a friend once told me...One salad won't make you skinny and one cheeseburger won't make you fat. Best wishes and Happy New Year!

This is a great post. I could never have imagined how difficult maintenance would be when I lost weight. Or that losing weight would change my relationship with food forever.
It’s so important to recognise the positives when there isn’t the tangible success of seeing the numbers on the scale drop any more. For me it’s seeing how much fitter I am and how exercise is integral to my life now. And recognising how nice it is to wake up and think “what do I want to wear today?” Rather than “what can I wear that will fit ok/ hide the fat”!
