I was thrilled today to step on the scale and see 154.5 flash up. Tried the scale in four different spots on the floor: yes, really true, no wavering. Last weigh-in 157 and now I'm down below the 155 goal weight.

So now I'm rethinking: is 155 the right goal? Or do I want to take it a little lower -- say the 150 I'd reached and maintained in 2001?

But what is absolutely clear to me: the MAIN goal is Main(tenance); I never ever want to permit my weight to creep up again.

Thanks, SparkPeople, for a fantastic site. And thanks, Spark Friends, for all your support: you are an amazing group of people.

    How did I miss this? Congratulations! Best of luck with maintenance.

Today was my weigh in and I also hit my goal weight, although mine did benefit from repositioning the scale.

So did you find a good group for maintenance?

I am so happy for you! Keep on doing what you have been doing. The goal met isn't the weight so much but the lifestyle of balanced living and health.

Someday..........I'll join you!
