Well lost the weight and now the real challenge starts. I have been down this path before and it seems like I always end up back where I started. Does any one have any advice?

Just keep doing what you did to lose weight or find a lifestyle that you can stick to and keep the weight off. Keep eating right and moving. Don't stop moving!

I have maintained since last November and it hasn't been that hard really

The exercise regime is now second nature and using the app is very helpful so I would suggest keep doing that if you are doing so now

Keep an eye on the mirror and wear a belt regularly.

If you start to look a little heavier our the belt feels tighter your slipping so take action

I'm in "maintenance mode" and I have stumbled upon an odd issue, that might end up being to my benefit.
I do intermittend fasting, which for me is two days per week where I do 600 calories (or less) as my RDI (this would be 4-500 for the women).
This does that my average daily intake is actually too low for maintenance. I now have to work HARD to eat all my calories, and I am still not there.
At the same time, two Low Cal Days will help me stay humble to my weight, help me stay focused on what I eat, and remind me to count calories, as I really need to not forget how to do this.
At the same time, you get some pretty nifty health benefits from doing this.

So far, this has kept me from gaining, but of course - I am also still dropping weight which I am NOT intending to do.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Thanks, I know it will be a challenge but I am going to have to just continue to work hard and find ways to get over holidays and low motivation days...

Daily Calorie Intake
At 306 lbs, 3700 calories would still put you in a deficit. You can definitely be more aggressive though. Try 3k and see how you feel and lower them slowly over time. I'm averaging over 3k and ...

sodium and calories
The calories and sodium are equally important. No one needs to be eating 4000 mg of sodium in a day then dousing it with tons of water. Your poor kidneys don't like this; you are making your kidneys ...
