Maintaining weight can be harder than losing it - congrats to you for acknowledging that you will find the upcoming season tough and congrats on making a concious effort to maintain rather than just forgetting about things altogether and taking a step backwards.
Being able to maintain your weight is like taking a step sideways. Not forward into loss, but not backwards into gain. Sideways is a good thing as it can show that the body is getting used to what you are doing and can also mean that we ourselves are learning how much is enough and where our limits lie.
Keep up the great work.
Gordz - I hope that you will achieve your goal, but please be aware that some people need to take things slower or need to relax once in a while about their weight loss goals. I am sure that redrose will get back on track after the silly season is over. I think it's jolly brave of her to admit that she will be taking things easy of Christmas and aiming to maintain her weight.
