emoticon emoticon on reaching maintenance. I see that the members before me have directed you to some great information. You can do it. Keep your thinking positive. Look what you are accomplished. You can be just as successful in maintenance.

Congrats!!! I've seen a couple spark teams about maintaining. I'd look into those.

Congratulations - what wonderful news! I know you will be as successful with maintenance on Spark as you were with weight loss. We are so proud of you for getting there! I can hardly wait to join you there. It will be a while, but it will be worth it. Thanks for being "living proof"!

Wow! Congrats.
There is a ton of information on SP about maintenance, even a Lifestyle Centre under the Healthy Lifestyle menu. Have a look.

That's awesome!! I hope you are feeling really proud of yourself! I hesitate to suggest anything since I have quite a ways yet to go, but if the Spark program helped you set up a calorie counting and burning program that worked so well, I'd set a maintenance goal and continue with what it suggests. That's what I plan to do when I ever get to my goal, anyway!

As of yesterday, my doctor says I have a healthy BMI - 23.8 I believe was the number (I was a bit stunned).

I guess this puts me into maintenance?!? I'm really nervous - so scared I'll gain it all back. Suggestions?
