Welcome. Congrats on your success. Your plans to continue tracking and continue to seek support are very good. Don't forget to keep up or step up activity/exercise. At least for many people, according to the National Weight Loss Registry, it is a major factor in successful maintenance.

Welcome to the team Celia! Right now I am the one that needs the kick in the pants! It is time for that creeping crud to be gone from my life! Honesty is the best policy so I will have to be extra careful when weighing and measuring. Keep up the good work Celia!

emoticon on your loss, and emoticon to the Final Frontier, as I like to call Maintenance! It's a different mindset, this new phase, but it requires many of the same actions / habits / activity it took to get here. And it is worth it!

Keep up the great work! I have been on maintenance for a year now, but still track, simply to make sure I am in the range I should be, especially on the nutrient ratios as I track salt and fiber as well..

Glad to see you here, Celia - I'm 8+ years into maintenance, so I know first-hand that it can be done, and that occasional weight-creep can be fought-back as well.

Congrats and welcome!

The folks here are full of helpful advice, suggestions, support, and the occasional kick in the pants, when necessary.

Greetings! I have been looking forward to joining this team, and the time has come. On May 19, I "declared victory" and started moving into maintenance. From other maintainers, I've gleaned that I need to keep tracking for awhile to get used to the new calorie range, and I need to share with others who are in maintenance. Looking forward to your wisdom.
