Enjoy that Special Piece of Cake
No change is the good news. I continue at my targeted weight and have found that I rely less on the calorie intake monitoring tool I originally needed to keep my daily calories at 1,500. After three years I have learned the impact of portion size and food choices to be able to maintain my caloric intake and hence weight easily.
The purpose of this post is to simply say that this approach to weight loss is one that can be permanent and easy. It need not be a ping pong effect of weight loss and gain and forced deprivation to get back on track.
Free of the struggle to maintain or regain my weight goal, I am now able to enjoy living without the angst of feeling guilty about that special piece of cake. The reason is simple. The piece of cake is special and not a normal part of my daily diet.
