Hi and welcome to the team! I just joined this week too, so I'm still kind of lurking on the threads. LOL! I've done a few posts here, but I think it'll take some time to learn about everyone enough for me to feel really comfortable. I do like it here though.

Maintaining isn't real easy, but you can do it. I've held mine for 6 months now, so if I can do it you can too!

Hi All, just wanted to introduce myself. I reached my goal a couple of weeks ago, but I'm kind of scared to "maintain." So I keep going back to my old teams. Today I decided to take the plunge and admit that I made it, and I can continue to stay here. Yikes!
I don't really know how this team works. So I'll just watch for a while.

I've heard that it happens. I just usually turn to cheerleader mode ("good job!" "i know how you feel, you can do it!") and most people will accept that. But generally, I don't spend a lot of time in strictly weight-loss related forums.

Thank you. :) I do have one question, not actually about maintainance though. If you belong to another spark team, do you kind of get the feeling sometimes that people on that team kind of ignore you because you've reached your goal? I'm getting that on one of my teams. It's like they think you shouldn't be there anymore just because you're not actually trying to drop the pounds. And if that happens, how do you deal with it?

This is a very supportive group! We all understand what one another are saying. We can pretty much all put ourselves in the other guy's shoes. So, welcome to the team! We hope we can help and share.

Congratulations on meeting your goal, and welcome to the team.

Hi, I've been looking for a team that has members who reached their goal and are on the maintainance program. It seems like it was hard to find, but I finally did. LOL!

I reached my goal about 6 months ago and have done really good since. Now and then I will fluctuate within about 5 pounds, but my original goal was 130 and I gave myself some leadway for safety sake. :) So as long as I stay below 130, I'm happy.

My name is Susi and I'm 51 and I've been here at sparks for about a year and 5 months and I still love it here.

I'm married, no children, have a wonderful husband of almost 28 years and live in Ohio.

I'm looking forward to meeting you! HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!
