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 :)
