Krystal,
I joined this team a few weeks ago at the suggestion of a member from another team and so far it's been great. I also am close to goal and those last pounds are killer to get off and so I too have really appreciated the support. We can do it but I guess we have to just be patient but that isn't easy. So we'll work together to get there ok?

Welcome and congratulations. This is the right place to be. Reaching goal weight is only the first step. Maintenance is hard but not as hard as losing weight over and over again. Teams like this one can make a huge difference. It already has for me.

Congrats, Krystal!

I will say that this team is AMAZING. I've gotten a lot of great information from this group as well as a great sense of camaraderie and support as we all continue in this long chapter of healthy living that we call maintenance.

Looking forward to hearing from you on the boards, and don't forget about the daily check-ins! I find them very useful as they help me with accountability.

Welcome! :)

Hi Krystal, it's great to see you here! Please have a look around our threads and links (which you can find under the Team Stream on the right side of the page) and let me or one of the other leaders know if you have any questions. If you have a specific question or area that you're struggling with, please also feel free to start up a new discussion thread. You'll be sure to receive lots of helpful responses. There's also a Daily Accountability thread that you might be interested in checking out and our Mardi Gras Maintenance Challenge will be starting up in just over a week if that's up your alley.

Welcome to the team and hope to see you around these pages!

emoticon emoticon job on meeting your goal, but the fun doesn't stop there!!! I am finding that there is even more to learn about maintaining! Well, of course. How many of us have lost weight time and time again, only to gain it back and more. That's what makes this team of spark emoticon so special. They have "tons" (no pun intended) of insight on how to KEEP the weight off and to make this a lifestyle that doesn't end but keeps on getting better. So glad you decided to join us! Looking forward to getting to know you better!

Congrats on reaching goal and welcome to the maintenance team. Hope you can find some of the maintainers a bit of an inspiration, in that it can be kept off.
