Hi and welcome, it is a scary time and don't be surprised if you lose a bit more before you get the balance right. You look fabulous, congratulations on your success.

No need to be scared, you'll do just fine! Just tinker with your nutrition and fitness and you'll find the niche you want to stay in! Congratulations on making it!

Maintenance is not easy because it takes manipulating calorie intake on a daily basis. But it's worth it. Does it get to be a pain? Sometimes it's an inconvenience. But since the alternative is low self esteem, not fitting in your clothes, being unhealthy - yeah, it's worth it.
Welcome! Congrats on making your goal!
to the team! I would suggest adding back the calories slowly and keep up with your exercise. My weight still fluctuates up to 4 pounds either way sometimes. If the scale goes up I drop back a few hundred calories for a week or so. Then if it goes to low I increase by 1 to 200 for a few days. It is a lot easier for me to gain then lose.
"Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food."
Romans 14:20a (NIV)
My goal weight was 119(pre-prego) and today I weighted in at 118.8! I can't believe I finally made it.
I am a little nervous to be here because I am scared that I will quickly gain the last pound or two that was so difficult to lose back! I plan on increasing my exercise and also calorie intake. To lose that last couple pounds I went to a strict 1200 calories a day diet and now I have to figure out how to maintain it with the right amount of calories without losing a lot more or gaining.
I am hoping I can find help though you guys who may be going through the same thing!
I am looking forward to meeting everyone and joining some challenges!
