Thanks very much for the thread topic!
A few thoughts that come to mind this morning.
I, too, find maintenance to be ongoing yo-yoing.
I, too, find these necessary:
Food tracking, not allowing PFC or portion creep, and enough water, exercise, as well as the right supplements.
Perhaps most of all, nurturing the frame of reference of putting my health first.
For me, this means:
- keeping up on reading things about biochemistry, as best I can, endocrine disruptors, environmental toxins, neurotransmitters, endorphins, supplements, etc.
- connecting with others who are quite keen on LC living and understanding the science of health
If I fall off, I have to muster up that "pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again".
Best wishes, all.
