Hi. I restarted the program again just over two weeks ago over at the Spark People 6WBMO Team. Had to make a few tweaks due to medical issues, but other than that, it's working out great.
I'm looking for a more active forum of 6WBMO users. I really miss the forum where there was also someone posting and cheerleading support (Rah Rah Rah!!).
I've been very successful with the 6WBMO each time I've used it. The problem is the maintenance phase (living lean). I've learned that there needs to be a transition from the reduction phase and a solid plan for maintenance.
There was a 6WBMO forum (before MT passed away) called "beyond six weeks." That concept makes so much sense to me now. It's all about maintaining a lifestyle after the 6 (or more) weeks of weight reduction.
So I'm working on that living lean plan now. This way, I will never need to "restart" again. I keep going.
