    Such a great reminder of how this is a lifestyle. Caught myself slipping back up after an injury this past winter. Even in maintenance the "program" never ends. Glad it's still free, 'cuz I'll be Sparkin' for life!

    I did the same thing. 18 years ago I lost about 80lbs, then slowly put back on plus more. Perhaps if I had kept up the exercise I could have been successful in keeping it off.

You have done a fabulous job!!! Your story inspires me tremendously!

    I've been working with 4A-HEALTHY-BMI on the 'At Goal and Maintaining' team and can personally attest to what an awesome and inspiring person she is. Not only is she committed to her own personal goals, but she's also making a huge effort to help others--really a Herculean effort considering how small the maintainers community is. We're trying to create a space where maintainers can go for consistent support, whether they're staying on track or are having difficulties and are slipping. There's tons of information out there about how to lose weight, but so very little about how to maintain and, as I'm sure many Sparkers can attest, that leads to most people regaining the weight they've worked so hard to take off. We want to work to help change the very bleak statistics that say up to 95% (or more) of people who reach their goal will regain the weight. SparkPeople offers a great environment with lots of support for people who are losing weight and we want to offer the same level of support and resources to those who are maintaining. Many of us maintainers know how frustrating it is to work so hard to lose weight only to gain it all back again, but it doesn't have to be that way. With support from our members and from SparkPeople, we CAN make maintenance just a bit less daunting and turn those statistics around.
