Maintaining has its own challenges and is not as motivating as losing, but SP offers a lot of help, such as the blog you mentioned. Glad to have you join the team.

Glad to have you here!! Welcome to the wonderful journey of maintenance!!
No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
Original Goal: 114. Current old lady goal: 106.
I just read a great blog from 4A-HEALTHY-BMI with all sorts of great info and a fantastic idea for logging the foods that didn't go down the hatch!
I LOVED IT!!! There was a link to this team as well....
I've been on the site since January 2008. My profile name includes my goal weight, but it turned out that was a number that COULD BE BEAT! After regaining my "Spark honeymoon" weight loss to within 12 pounds of my high weight by the end of my second year, I bumped along until this January.
I had an important event at the end of July that was my catalyst *and* motivation. I changed up my way of eating after reading Eat to Live. My challenge that started in January called for an average 2 lb loss per week, and I averaged 1.5 lbs. Slow, steady, consistent from January till end of July.
I don't eat a strict vegetarian diet, but I try to eat all whole foods and plenty o' vegetables. The weight came off and I've been maintaining between 117-123 since August 1st, so two months of maintenance so far.
I look forward to meeting you folks! Congrats to you all, I plan to learn a lot from you and hope I can help, too!
