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!

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since. Had a baby at the end of April 2016 and am working to get back to my pre baby form, or at least as close to it as I realistically can!

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.
