    In case you missed this post I made in reply to one of yours about maintaining weight loss:

    I lost count of the times I gained/lost/gained/lost.....too many. In Oct 2011 I decided I'd had enough of diets. They didn't work. For me a diet only meant something I stayed on until I lost the weight. You'd have thought I'd have figured out that was a no win proposition.

    This time I decided to not go on a diet. Rather I would chose to eat healthy most of the time, track my food, stay at a reasonable calorie goal (2,000/day for a 5'8" woman of 61 yrs old) and move more. I saw a hypnotist who helped me to pay attention to hunger - stop when I'm almost full and not to eat when not hungry

    Lots more learnings as I went about this. The biggest is that it was and is a journey where I made small sustainable changes. Now I genuinely prefer the way I eat: focus on real food, watch portions & eat lots of plants. Exercise is a non negotiable part of every day.

    I joined Spark in 2013 to help me with maintenance and it has. The articles are great and I am constantly learning new things and tips to stay healthy and on track. The community is great and so supportive. It is really encouraging to get the positive feedback.

    There probably isn't ONE answer - in fact I know that there is no one size fits all in the weight loss/maintenance arena. You will find what works for you and you'll be one of us that not only loses the weight, but keeps it off.

    Hi there. My Dr. has to take the Trapezoid bone out of my wrist. For two weeks it will be in a cast for my hand and forearm and I will have a tether to keep it in place. There is no way but walking he told me so. My hand will not move and after a month I will have to have PT to awaken the muscles in my wrist and hand.
    Thanks for the suggestions but my Dr is in charge of what I can do.
    We have a lot of snow in Maine right now. I can go to the Y to do the indoor walking track.
    Have a Happy New Year. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon after the cast comes off. It might be up to 6 weeks. I hope Not.

    Hi friend, as you were stating you had lost weight in the past but had regained the weight. I think the best way to do this is to remember what motivated you to lose the 50 lbs in the first place and go back to that mindset. We are about the same age and it is not easy but due to my health problems I have no choice but to lose to remain healthy in the coming years. Good luck I feel you can do it again!!!!
