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.
If you want to know more, watch 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.

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, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

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...
