I have that happen too with store windows. I can't believe it's me. I've seen a fat self for more than 1/2 my life and it will take some time to get used to seeing a normal sized self.

Persevere. Even if you fall on your face, you have moved forward.

PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION.

Hi Ruthie and Congrats! It really is weird to go by a window or the mirror and realize it's US. Woo hoo! Best Wishes on your maintenance. I'm just getting started, too.

Hi everybody -- I just joined this team too. SO HAPPY to be able to join it! I'm 56 and had let the weight and unhealthy lifestyle creep up on my over the years. I am so pleased to be back to a healthy lifestyle . . . and I want to stay with SP and this team to maintain. Yep, I'm still a little surprised when I see this slim person in a window and realize it's me. Great feeling.

emoticon Reaching your goal is an emoticon thing. I know how you feel. Be sure and emoticon in a non-food way. Buy yourself a new outfit or some kind of gift to make this time special.

" My goal is to live the truly religious life, and express it in my music. If you live it, when you play, there's no problem because the music is part of the whole thing. To be a musician is really something. It goes very,very deep. My music is the spiritual expression of what I am--my faith, my knowledge, my being." by John Coltrane

Welcome to the team! What an amazing loss!

Reached my goal November 2009!

Weight Watchers worked for me and now I work for Weight Watchers.

It is a life style, not a life sentence.

Welcome to the team and congrats on your amazing weight loss. This team is a great spot to learn to maintain, and to learn healthier attitudes about eating and food.

Persevere. Even if you fall on your face, you have moved forward.

PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION.

Wow, BJW, you are to be congratulated big time. What a wonderful accomplishment. And I do mean WONDERFUL.

Isn't it the best feeling? Like floating. After 6 months at my goal, I am sometimes still astonished by the reflection in the mirror or store window and don't recognize myself. Or if someone describes me as thin, I think they're nuts. But I get over it.

There is still work to be done to stay where we are, and there as so many temptations to return to the old ways. Stay strong, stay committed and enjoy every moment of this victory.

Hi. Just joined this team. Reached initial goal August 1, 2010, then went down 3 more pounds. Think I'm satisfied where I am right now, just hoping that by staying active on SP, joining this team and the Community Team I can stay motivated and accountable to keep the excess weight off this time. Glad to be able to join you!
