maintenance?

Hi guys,
any tips for maintaining weight loss? I seem to always be either losing or gaining but I can never seem to maintain! :)
thanks

I have the issue that I am great at maintaining my weight, losing it is my issue lol.
I think when your body gets to the size that is suitable it will naturally want to stay at that weight- providing you keep eating right and doing regualr exercise. I have been worried I will use it as an excuse to not exercise or have take away again but I have learnt that healthy eating and regular exercise feels great so wont want to lose that feeling.
I guess if you get to the point your happy with your weight but you keep losing some then you would just add a bit more food into your diet- not go all out and eat junk but introduce some more of the foods you have been avoiding- like maybe some pasta with meals, or mashed potato (i really miss that)
It might just take a bit of time to find the right balance of food and exercise, just like it did to lose the weight.

See, I think my body is trying to keep me at a BMI of 22.5, which I am at now, because when I get down lower than that I get STARVING HUNGRY!!! Do u think that's possible?

So you think just to keep going as if I'm still trying to lose weight but maybe at in a few more carbs and calories?

First of all, why would you want to get down BELOW 22.5? Thats just tiny!!!

Etch- a bmi of between 20 and 25 is a healthy weight range, anything below that would be a bit to small
