Now that I'm in maintenance, I'm trying to find a balance between recording everything and having too many free-for-all days. If I need to, I'll be returning to the site and begin recording my food and exercise again. I'm hoping I can maintain my low-120's on my own! :o)

Welcome to the At Goal and Maintaining Team! It's a whole new game. We all work to keep off the excess. Good Luck! I was scared to death. Still struggle a bit on the weekends. The last two months has certainly shown me it's a process. Be vigilant. You can do it!

Thanks for the add and the comment! It took me some time to get to that point of view, but it's been a liberating process. I'm an Michigan-Native myself, just recently moving late Spring to the Prairie! Big Change.
