Welcome to the world of maintenance-the best stage of the Spark program! The best advice I can give is to stick with the program, keep exercising and enjoying good healthy food in moderation, and check your weight often. Congratulations!

Hi went to the DR this week and he told me it is time to stop losing weight. I did have my goal at 120 but he said no for my age. I will be 60 in Dec. I am 132 I was 214 when I started here on Spark over a year ago. So now I am in the maintenance stage. So I am from NY I have 3 teams here on spark. I am a motivator and you can all check out my blogs and page. I lost 93 pounds with the help of Spark and many people here.

All in good time...and with the help of my friends.

Annie, congratulations and welcome. The best things that help me keep my weight where I want it (have been at goal for over 5 years with one 15 lb. slip-up when I broke my leg) is to continue to use the nutrition and fitness trackers. I really think about what I put in my mouth when i know I am going to put it in the tracker. It also helps me keep track of what I can eat for dinner and if I have some room for a treat. I love it.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

My name is Anne and I reached my goal weight this week. This week is also my 1year SP anniversary but never really used the site till April. I have lost almost 2 stone and now want to keep it off. Feel a bit lost and uncertain NEVER want to let the weight creep on again. I live in Essex in England I will be 52 next week,I am married with two grown up children who have left home.I work as a nurse so do shifts, so I have to plan meals and exercise or it is easy to slip. I read, garden, enjoy housework and my home.
