Welcome to the team. There is a great deal of collective wisdom from individuals who have chosen a journey similar to yours. It is always a good thing to be as prepared as possible to face whatever lies ahead. You are successfully nearing your goals so the tools are there. Sometimes it is a matter of using them in different and perhaps more creative ways. However, the basics remain the same. emoticon
Best wishes as you pursue your journey to health.

Teresa

Welcome. What an inspiration you are. Maintenance is not somewhere or a sometime, it is an attitude toward your life and your health. You are already on the right track.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

Welcome to the team!

I think it is great that you want to hit the ground running! I too wanted to learn more about maintenance before I reached my goal.

Better to be prepared!

I went from 210-120 in 16 months with SparkPeople!
In Maintenance since 8/11/09!! (backslid without internet but still within normal range!)

I think it's super you decided to join before hitting target, as I've been having difficulty leveling off. (There's something addictive about watching that scale go down...)

Oaharris: Welcome! You have been doing great!

Is your name related to Overeaters Anonymous? I am a great believer in 12-step programs. They have saved my life.

If you live (and eat) one day at a time, you just keep on doing it after goal. You can eat a little more each week, but not as much as you might be dreaming. I found that when I was losing weight on Weight Watchers way back when, the more I loved the discipline of the food plan, the easier it was to just keep on eating that way. One Day At A Time I have kept it off for most of 39 years, and it is all contingent on remembering my primary purpose of living one day at a time, and keeping an attitude of gratitude.

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.

Original Goal: 114. Current old lady goal: 106.

Hi, I'm new to the team. My highest weight 314. I had GBP surgery Jan. of last year and got stuck in the same old habits. I came to Spark weighing 207 and now I'm just about at my goal weight. I didn't want to wait until I reached my goal weight to join because I want to hit the ground running as it is said. I don't know how to maintain this new weight. I want to know what I'm doing when I finally reach goal.
