Welcome. I'm the same. Lost my weight and then regained it due to stress and scheduling issues. Getting back to maintaining is my goal also. Cindi

I am also trying to get back to my goal weight via Beck -- however, I have not managed to maintain at all in the past, so I am impressed by your year of maintenance. I look forward to hearing more from you!
Please add me as a friend if you'd like to read my SparkPage. I'm not really THAT private, but I don't like people who aren't on SparkPeople to Google my blog.

I joined SP in 2008 and lost 15 pounds in a year; which I was very happy about. Stayed at maintenance weight for a year, then due to stress eating and not exercising as consistently as I had been, I have gained 10 pounds back. A friend of mine has been blogging about Beck and as I read her posts I thought "Yes, that is just what I need; the points she is making are exactly what trip me up time and time again." So here I am. I bought the book and workbook today and consider this Day 1 of the Six Week program.
