It was pointed out on another thread that us ‘maintainers’ don’t have a true home thread on here and I have decided to start one 😁 although in the spirit of the rest of the forum it is open to all following the way of life and not just those at target.
I hope that we can offer each other support and tips when it gets hard, when life drags you back into bad habits and you need a bit of help to say ‘enough is enough and I am not going back’. Even perhaps some menu ideas more suited to less restricted stages of the way of life if anyone like me has adopted MM’s ‘slow carb’ not ‘low carb’ variant of the WOE.
At the beginning of October I had been 8 months at or near my target, and spent those months trying different strategies with varying levels of success. I have settled on a mix of intermittent fasting including generally one day with only light fluids and med style meals for the rest of the week, but I find myself with still too much of a tendency to want to try ‘treats’ from my old life. Most of the time I am disappointed by them, but that doesn’t seem to stop me trying the next one. Christmas will be quite the challenge!
