I've have been away from home visiting friends and family in another part of the country. I returned on Tuesday (28th). Once all the water weight had been through my system I am 1lb more than I was before the trip. That isn't too bad given the amount of eating and drinking I did
Like most of us, I find weight maintenance a struggle. Having reached my target weight and maintained for about 6 months I stopped logging and put on 11lbs between Jan and the end of March. Reading the post on this challenge this is a very common story. Most people have to work massively hard to shift the weight but just as hard, if not harder to keep it off.
It seems counter intuitive, you would think once we hit our goal we would have all the skills and knowledge to continue to eat in maintenance, but the opposite happens. Does science know why this is?
