Goal weight!!! (95 pounds gone!)

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Yes, this morning I actually passed just below that number of 125 pounds on the scale that seemed so elusive when I started SparkPeople in March of '11. 95 pounds gone! It still hasn't really set in, and maintenance scares me like none other atm as there is so little info out there on it that is positive or helpful besides the small amount that SP has on it. It is overwhelming but I'm viewing it as a new challenge (and those that know me know I love a good challenge). I will be writing the almost obligatory "I made it to goal weight" blog when I round up pics ect :) I also will on having a running blog series on the transition to maintenance. Any info and experiences I learn I would love to share with others to help them out when they approach and transition into maintenance as well. :)

    Congratulations! I know maintenance must seem daunting, but I'm at the other end -just starting - and it occurred to me that you must feel like I feel now. I don't believe yet that this massive change in my lifestyle is going to be possible. I am afraid of failure. But, you have shown me that it IS possible, that I just have to believe and put myself out there and try. You can keep this up. You proved it is possible. Weight loss is the by-product of living a better life, and it seems that you are doing it. Believe in yourself! And, bravo!!

    You can handle maintenance. You have rocked the weight loss and approach it the same way. I have read a lo to f SP success stories who said that they allowed themself a 5 lb range in maintenance. You may consider that. No panic from 125-130lbs.
