Hi Lisa! Welcome to the team! This is where you will find the support and the motivation you need to be done with those 38 pounds forever! I've been on that yo-yo myself my whole life and I'm finally learning how to maintain. It's a journey itself, but it's worth it!

Welcome to the team, Lisa!

To maintain you must find your proper range of calories. This can be neatly done by using the Nutrition Tracker. I will be tracking for the rest of my life! Great trade-off!

Congrats on losing 38 lbs forever!

Congratulations!!!
I found that when I want to binge and I journal, it keeps my hands busy and frequently it stops the desire to binge.

Congrats on all your success to date. My best advice is to keep doing everything you did to get to that weight, except with a little more food. For me that means tracking my food intake and exercising a lot!! Good luck. If you have a particular challenge, post it here so we can all help. -Marsha

Congratulations on the 38 pounds gone forever. I concur with getting rid of the big clothes. That is your message to yourself those pounds are gone forever. That was one thing I did differently this time, and, not only does it signal a firm commitment, it makes room in your closet for a wardrobe your new body deserves.

Congratulations on losing your 30 pounds. My first recommendation is to get rid of your clothes that are too big for you. If you have them in your drawer you have a likelihood that you will deny any weight gain because you don't need to go up a size at the store. The way your clothes fit will keep you motivated to stay on program. If your clothes start to feel snug that will set off an alarm. If you have clothes that are loose, you will most likely not pass on that extra something to eat because you have room in your pants. clean out your closet and drawers.

My name is Lisa - I have lost 38 lbs. over the last year and a half and I would like to keep it off. I have never been able to do so - I am constantly either up or down on the scale and have so many sizes of clothes in my drawers that it is hard to get dressed in the morning. :P I am hoping to learn some ways to stay at my current weight without bouts of binging or starving myself. Looking forward to it :)
