The answer (as all real answers
are) is kind of complicated.
Once you hit a certain point, where
you have enough muscle to chew through fat easier, yes, it IS easier to maintain. However, what a LOT of people on BFL discover is
that your standards get higher as you get fitter and trimmer.
So, and I'll pick on myself for
this, when I started my first challenge, I just wanted to fit into my size 8s again. But once I got there, I realized that
I could be SO MUCH better, and I really WANTED to be smaller and fitter. That gave me the impetus to make it through Challenge
Now however, it's not about being
a small size anymore (although as a size 4, I suppose I qualify), it's about being fit enough to do the things I want to do
- like dance and participate in the Portland Marathon 5 mile race.
That means I'm swapping out certain
things from BFL to accomplish my goals; not because BFL isn't perfect the way it is; but because these are things I find I'm
passionate about. I find that because I'm passionate about them, it's not psychologically as hard to "get fitter"; but it's
just as physically demanding.
Hope that helps,
