Hi and welcome. I'm pretty new here also. I continue to use the SP food journal. Wish I was disciplined enough to not have to use it but the reality is that it makes me think twice about anything I eat. I continue to either power walk for about 1/2 hour a day four days a week and jog 3 X a week. Sometimes will add in some more exercise, toning or stretching at home - nothing intense. I think probably one of the best tools for maintenance is staying connected to others travelling the same journey.
Congratulations on your success.

Welcome to the team. You'll find we're all aiming toward the same goal - looking and feeling our best and staying healthy. The best decision I ever made was joining Sparkpeople. It's given me a place to record what I eat, how much I exercise, how much water I drink and how much sleep I get. That way I stay aware of a healthy lifestyle and have formed habits I'll stick with the rest of my life. emoticon

Welcome and congratulations on a job well done. You look great. Remember maintaining is about continuing a healthy lifestyle that you can enjoy, not being perfect. A change in that thought process, that an indulgence is just that and you are entitled now and again to indulge, continue with your healthier choices, can help prevent the "I've Blown it" binge.

Welcome to the team! You are looking great!
Take some time to just enjoy the new you and focus on the strength you gained. If you continue to exercise well you may never have to look at the scales again or count calories. Instead you can enjoy exercise and enjoy great, healthy and nutritious food.
You only need to look in the mirror and see how your clothes fit to know that you are still on track. As time goes by you can stop worrying about the scales alltogether. People existed for thousands of years without scales and calorie counting. emoticon
This way you have time to journal about the beautiful things in life and how you want to make a difference in this world. :)

Welcome to maintenance! I always just jot my meal down when I eat out (which is very seldom) just so I don't forget that I did it. My memory can be quite selective, moreso as the days roll by without the weekly thrill of a number going down.

Hello Everyone!!!

I'm new to this SparkTeam because I'm fairly new to maintaining. About a month ago, I hit my goal weight and I am striving to maintain a morning weight between 122 and 127 and a night weight of under 130lbs. Four years ago I weighed 160lbs. I lost 15lbs on my own and then joined SparkPeople about two years ago. SparkPeople helped me lose another 20lbs for a total of 35lbs - Woohoo!

Right now I'm 126lbs in the morning (within my range). Since I'm off work (I'm a teacher), I will be spending more time exercising and cooking healthy meals. I hope and plan to drop a little more weight even though I am in a good range. I'm hoping to have a lower weight range if my body allows it.

The hardest thing for me is tracking/journaling when I eat outside of my home - especially things that are hard to account for. I can be a perfectionist at times and I don't like when I track and it tells me I'm outside of my range of calories and nutrients. So rather than tracking or journaling, I just overeat (which is worse). I'm also working on making sure I drink enough water. Just because we reached our goals doesn't mean we are perfect, right?

Looking forward to talking with you all :)
