It's a Little Thing: 6 Months Maintaining

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, March 15, 2013

I’m doing a little hip hop zumba be-bop dance this morning to celebrate my arrival at the 6 month line of maintenance. I must thank the At Goal and Maintaining Team for being with me every step of the way. What a great team, what fun friends, what an upbeat message board! Bless you.

The truth is I could not give this team up for big meals, couch potato days or mindless neglect of my health. It just would not be worth it. And I never want to see those 30 pounds come back to roost either.

I wish everyone a healthy day no matter where you are on your Spark journey. Taking a healthy next step is always within our reach. That’s the “little thing” that keeps me going.

    Congratulations! I am at 4 full months maintenance and it doesn't seem too different from the last year or so of eating healthy . . . hmmmm, must be some thing to it. lol

My weight just leveled off and so it goes, I am maintaining. Great job of hanging in there . . . my goal exactly! Even more so than the actual weight loss.

This is where you know you got it!!!! emoticon

    emoticon on a pretty fabulous reason to enjoy that hip hop zumba be-bop (LOL! Love it!) dance - your six-month maintenance anniversary!! emoticon You look so slender, fit, and healthy, no one could ever have guessed that you'd lost all that weight and kept it off! It's success stories like yours that keep me wanting to stay on track, too. All the best for all the happiness and good health in the world this year...and thanks, too, for your kind words on my SparkPage :) emoticon
