At GOAL 7/28/2013

Sunday, July 28, 2013

As I've stated in a previous blog, I am ready for the maintenance phase of my journey. Today I am doing just that. Reached my goal 60 pounds and am changing my tracker.

I've taken the past few weeks working on this transition, especially the mind set it will take to maintain. I'm sure there will be some stumbles along the way, but I will not let them take me away from my long term goal of maintaining this weight loss. Of course I will take this this part of my journey with "baby steps" when it comes to adding calories but "big girl" steps when it comes to exercise. I will find the balance I will need to succeed.

I no longer fear this new adventure. I am prepared to walk the walk.....not just talk the talk. Besides with the support of my fabulous Spark family I can't go wrong. You have already gotten me through the past 3 years and am sure you will be there for me as this journey continues.

Thank you for stopping by and let's keep making those healthy choices together.... good for both body and soul. HUGS!

    Congratulations. I wish you the best and I know you will maintain. I have been maintaining just fine for the past year, ONLY still 60 pounds from my goal!

    I wish you the best as you begin this new phase of your journey.
I have not yet reached maintenance, but I have many SP friends who have - and I know it requires almost as much determination and perseverance as the original loss does.
Here's to your continued success!

    Barb great job!! I'm proud of you! Yes don't do what I did, I'm now 15 pounds higher and I got lazy with my food and I've been struggling with my working out but trying to get on track with that again!

Great Job and Keep up the mental as well as the physical!!

    Hi Barb, You are right, it does take a different mindset to maintain rather than lose weight. You are doing incredible and I know that you will find just as much success in maintaining as in losing. emoticon

    It's definitely a continuation of the adventure. . . for sure. BUT you've already got the good healthy habits established as a foundation for the continuation!

Good job. . . proud of you! I remember when you first joined. It is such a growing process, isn't it!

HUGS

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon This is just wonderful!! It's funny, it's taking me soooo long to lose this excess (& I still have a ways to go) and I seem to lose a little then maintain it for months!!!! I know maintenance will take vigilance, tho, in the long run! If you ever feel you need a cheerleader, here I am! Hope you will be sticking here like glue to make sure you maintain your maintenance!! hehe Can't tell you how proud I am of you and your accomplishment!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I saw on the Angels team huddle that you reached a goal and I came over to see what it was about and I was right. I had a clue since you joined the team and have been talking about it. emoticon I am so happy for you. I hope you did that happy dance, after yelling it from the rooftops of course. emoticon Me, I ran to the store and bought my jeans.
