What is Mindful Maintenance?

Mindful Maintenance is using the practice of Mindfulness as a key tool for weight loss maintenance.

Many of us have struggled with weight problems because of emotional eating, stress eating, comfort eating, and unconscious or automatic eating.

When we practice mindfulness, we become more attuned to ourselves and to our experience, both emotional and physical, internal and external. We become more self-aware. Self-awareness is essential for long-term weight management success, because in order to maintain a healthy weight, we need to avoid eating for reasons other than hunger. We need to be aware of when we’re physically hungry, and when we’re not physically hungry. Many of us develop the habit of eating when we’re not physically hungry. We eat for many different reasons.

We also need to be aware of when we’re hungry for food, versus something other than food (like rest, fun, companionship, conversation, peace, and so on). We need to be aware of the triggers that drive us to eat when we are not physically hungry, and we need to tune into our bodies so that we can be aware of when we are hungry and when we are full.
