Living the Thin Life [Kindle Edition]

Quote:
Living the Thin Life - Creative Ways to Maintain Your Weight for Life was written to help successful dieters maintain their ideal weight. Every person is different, so everyone needs to develop his or her own personalized plan for fitness and weight maintenance. This book explains how to build that personal plan to take into account each individual’s unique eating personality. Tips for staying motivated, shaving off calories, and working exercise into an everyday routine are provided in a light-hearted manner. As an added bonus, over 50 healthy, low calorie recipes are included.

The author, Elle Meyer, successfully lost weight ten years ago and came up with her own methods for keeping the weight off. She decided to write a book to tell her story and share strategies that really work. She interviewed many people who have lost and maintained weight and included their best ideas and suggestions. These tips are from real people, for real people.

In addition to including common sense, effective diet techniques, Elle also describes some habits of her husband “Elvis”. These habits provide examples of what not to do when trying to maintain a healthy weight.

Lots of great info on this site. There is one problem though, and that is, for some reason, you do need to scroll down to get to the information on every page.

Define Maintenance — On Your Terms

You lost weight. Now what?
It's a tough question because it's one you ultimately answer alone. So the group of maintainers comprising IKeepItOff.com forge our own answers when we can't find them elsewhere.
Our craft articles, tools and services feature research, interviews, recipes to ensure you have support answering "Now what?" for yourself.
Basically, we learned the hard way so you don't have to.

Thanks Demi!
I learned something about skin removal surgery from this site. One of the commenters found out that some insurance companies will cover it if you've lost over 100 lbs and kept if off for more than 1 year.
I need to check out my own insurance about this.

Winning After Losing: Keep Off the Weight You've Lost--Forever
http://www.amazon.com/Winning-After...30&sr=8-1-fkmr0

Quote:
Stacey Halprin lost over 350 pounds. The little thrills of accomplishment kept her going through her weight loss phase but she knew that the statistics about gaining weight after losing are scary. When Halprin looked for books to prevent yo-yo dieting, she didn’t find any. “I decided to write this book because even though there are hundreds of books that tell people how to lose weight, I couldn’t find a single one that explained how to keep the weight off.” (p. xxvi) She talked to experts in both physical and mental health and to other people in the “Winner’s Circle,” people who, like Halprin, have maintained a weight loss. All of these people are quoted liberally in this book which is filled with tips, lists, and strategies for winning after losing.

Have just read a great book and wanted to share it here: Paleoista: Gain Energy, Get Lean, and Feel Fabulous With the Diet You Were Born to Eat by Nell Stephenson.

Although not technically a book about maintenance, it is full of tips and advice in how to go about making your woe a lifestyle. IMO, this is where so many go wrong and find it very difficult to maintain. They think that you can go on a diet, lose the weight, and then return to their old way of eating and all their original bad habits. They don't realise that they need to change their whole way of thinking and more often than not, their way of doing things too. In other words, they have to change their lifestyle.

A Kitchen Makeover Guide, A Healthy Grocery Store Field Trip and Sticking with It Socially cover just some of the great advice on offer. IMO, you don't need to be following a paleo woe in order to benefit from it either. Oh, and there are over 50 delicious recipes too.

Paleoista: A More Feminine,’No-Cave’ Paleo Diet

You refer to “the paleo lifestyle,” not just the paleo diet. Can you explain the difference?


We’ve heard this in terms of weight loss—you talk about a diet and how it has to be a lifestyle change, you have to do something that you’re going to live with indefinitely. That’s why so many diets don’t work, because they’re too strict, or too low in calories, and son on. The paleo lifestyle is a lifestyle because it’s something you can follow not just at home, or here or there, but everywhere; you can do this everywhere. We don’t live in a bubble—we have business trips, we have parties—and one of the things I want to make clean in the book is that this is possible to do everywhere.

BTW, if you're interested, she also has a great blog called Paleoista.
