Gilbert, welcome to the team. I slid a bit after reaching my goal, but keeping as a part of this team motivates me to lose those few pounds. I identify with the going back to old habits. It is my downfall. I do find losing easier than maintaining so am looking forward to another stab at it.
Persevere. Even if you fall on your face, you have moved forward.
PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION.
Welcome, Gilbert!! I'm here to say that maintenance, which I once thought was impossible, is definitely possible. In fact, I'm doing it. And I also think it is clearly worth the effort.
So glad you have joined us! This group of people is great, so if you are having a challenge, speak up. Someone else may have just the solution you are looking for.
Welcome, to At Goal and Maintaining! Congrats on your success to date!

Hi Gilbert! I've only been maintaining for about a month, and I'd definitely say that continuiung to journal my food is the biggest thing for me. The exercise is pretty much habit now, but never mindlessly eating is what I think is hard. Glad you found us! Welcome to the team and Best Wishes with your continued success.
Today's choices become tomorow's realities.
Gilbert. Glad you have joined us.
Like the others, I can also identify with your reasons for being here.
This is a very supportive team so it's worthwhile to keep posting here to get and give advice and share experiences.
Start weight - over 166 lb

Welcome Gilbert! Glad to have you aboard!
You might also want to look into Walker Tracker, a free site for logging your steps through "competitions" which are also totally free.
walkertracker.com/ look for me as RayLinStephens there too!
Walkers from 100 steps to 50,000+ steps daily are all welcome!
Maintenance is not as tough as people think - if you continue your practice of tracking. Any weight you can lose, you can also maintain - if you choose.

to "At Goal and Maintaining". I speak for myself and I'm sure there are many others who can identify with your three reasons. Perhaps even add a few of our own!
This team battles several of them, by cheering one another on when the rewards may not be so visible!
Defeat is temporary: giving up makes it permanent! Never give up!
Max lifetime weight 224.5
Maintaining with 122 marked as "goal" since October 2010
Hi, I'm Gilbert, and I'm new here! Right now I'm at the weight I want to be, and my ongoing goal is just to keep the weight off. Many times I feel like keeping the weight off is much harder than losing the weight in the first place for three main reasons: (1) temptations to fall back into old (bad) habits, (2) complacency, and (3) plain ol' hunger. Right now I carry a pedometer and I track my steps every day, but I wondered if there was a website where I could track this stuff online. So I found this place, and here I am! I'm looking forward to using this site and saying hi to all the folks here.
