emoticon to the group and emoticon on your accomplishment. We have very similar goal weights. I've been maintaining for 20 months now and my range is 135-140 lbs. I like a range so it's a bit more "healthy" for me and my mindset. I can go up and down five pounds and not feel guilty or bad!!

This is a very supportive place and you will find good advice and friendship here! I'm so glad that you joined and I look forward to getting to know you better.

Congratulations on reaching your goal and welcome to the team, LaShawn! I can totally relate to what you've said as a reformed yo-yo dieter myself, but there is hope. Lots of our successful maintainers are finally keeping their weight off after many years of ups and downs.

Please take a look around our discussion threads for topics that might be useful to you and check out our team links, which you can find under the Team Stream on the right side of the page for our archives of helpful maintenance-related articles and blogs. If you have a specific question that you'd like to put out to the team, please don't hesitate to start up a new discussion thread. We've got a pretty active and really supportive bunch here, so you'll be sure to receive lots of responses. Welcome again and please let me or one of the other leaders know if you ever need anything or have any questions.

Wonderful news, and welcome to the team, LaShawn!
Continuing to do what you did to get here is exactly the right way to maintain! You can definitely do this. Funny how our priorities about health can change our attitudes about maintaining when we get to 40 :) I yo-yoed through my 20's and 30's too, but this time is for keeps! You'll do it too!

Welcome - it sounds like you're on the right track. It turns out that we need to do the same things to maintain weight (tracking, exercising) that we did to lose it.

Hello Everyone. I reached goal today of 140. I'm looking forward to maintaining this time around. I've gotten to goal many times in the past but never stayed there for long. I plan on changing that today emoticon . I plan on continuing tracking my food, making healthy choices & exercising. I turned 40 in October and I don't want to spend my forties yo-yo dieting, like I did my 20's & 30's. I got in a workout this morning and I'm going to treat this day like any other day. I do plan on getting a manicure & pedicure to celebrate this milestone. Looking forward to helping others and receiving help. I can't wait to get to know you. Have a great day everyone.
