"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew." Saint Francis de Sales
I'm glad to finally be here. I've been at goal for about six months, but didn't do a very good job of maintaining - I kept losing, in spite of trying to level out. Though I'm currently nine pounds under my real goal, I THINK that I've finally found the right balance not keep dropping. I've been level for a month! I had an underweight problem in my early teen years and know that under can be as unhealthy as over. I want to be like Goldilocks and be "just right!"
Encouragement from Sparkfriends has been as important in maintenance as it was during the losing phase.
Looking forward to staying here and being a part of this group that encourages each other!
