Maintaining January 2017
17 Jan 2017, 21:07
Hello fellow mainteneers, how did you start the new year? For me the start has been excellent. Back from holiday in New Zealand and a couple of days in Sydney. No fasting in six weeks and no gain after X-mas and holiday :cool: :grin: Spot on at 63 kg, same as when leaving. So what is the secret? Did some walking and spend a lot of time enjoying the country. Somehow this seemed to have replaced any need to take food as a way of having a really good time :?: :geek: Anyone else have this experience?

Hi @P-JK, sounds like you had a fab time in NZ - not that I would expect anything less!

You were very fortunate with your holiday eating. I have the very opposite experience. My problem is that generally on holiday I am unable to access the same quantity of vegetables that I am used to eating. Unless I can fill myself with veg, I find it too easy to overeat. Eating fats does not help - and anyway, if I can't find veg, I can't find good fat either. Not so bad on self-catering holidays, but I still tend to have more sugary carbs than I need.

But on the maintenance theme, overall I am doing okay. As you may recall, I no longer weigh myself, but based on how clothes fit, I am staying relatively stable, which is the main thing.

As you also may have read, I had been having trouble lately having light days to compensate for the bit of overeating of Christmas goodies I was having every evening, but the weekly challenge appears to have given me the motivation to manage a light day. So that is pleasing.

Hope to hear from our fellow maintainers. :smile: :smile:
