I want to consistently follow the great food plan that I have developed over the years. I have reached my goal many times. However, I have never been able to keep off the weight indefinitely. I frequently struggle with Maintenance. I have recently regained about 12 pounds, and need support to stay away from that first bite of snacks/trigger foods which get me started on a food binge!
