To this date...even a year + after reaching goal, consistency with fitness is my biggest obstacle, and once I let that slide, a couple of pounds will find their way back and then it becomes far too easy to let the nutrition slip as well. I am still figuring our this balancing act called maintenance, but this team has been a HUGE help! Welcome! You're a in the right place!

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

I've reached my goal in July of this year. I've been searching (on and off) for a team to join dealing with this transition. So glad I found you...I was doing really well until about a month ago when a death in the family helped put me on a downward spiral. Not so much the eating (I did put on 3 pounds), but the fitness. I'm slowly getting back into it. Just need to get my "mojo" back. I'll be seeing you around the team threads.
