I have maintained my weight at around 182-185 pounds since last Spring, after having lost almost 150 pounds.  (I'm 6'1".)  So I have been maintaining a new set point for about nine months.  This really is the best possible outcome for me and I am very grateful.

I simply continue eating the way I learned to eat, using the following components, in order of importance:  (1) Intuitive Eating, as taught by Tribole and Resch; (2) choosing whole, unprocessed foods most of the time; (3) leaning toward the Paleo diet, but not completely; (4) not being "all or nothing" about anything.

I use my exercise bike most days of the week and do plenty of walking.

That's it.  Deo gratias.

And so . . . anything good recently?  Why yes, as a matter of fact.  The breakfast I just ate, for instance:  a hefty wedge of ground pork meatloaf refried in my cast iron skillet in olive oil with a green bell pepper, bella mushrooms sliced thick and red onions, and one egg fried over medium atop the meatloaf.  With plenty of Simply Heinz Ketchup.

I suffer.  :)

Your success is great!  I know "getting there" is half the battle.  It can be tempting to focus on dropping to a target weight, and less on a permanent lifestyle change.  Maybe the mind kind of has to trick itself into focusing on the weight loss in order to actually do it, but keeping the big picture in mind is key to keeping the weight off.

I think with my Atkins eating habits I tend to lean towards the Paleo approach too.  Now that we have a bigger place with a second bedroom, I am thinking about using it partly as an exercise room.  A stationary bike would do nicely.

Your breakfast sounds great.  Minus the ketchup, unless I can manage to find a no-sugar-added ketchup one day.
