I agree w/ Marg... and setting PERSONAL goal which would be LOWER than the ww goal.... I am a lifetimer too. I also think YOu can talk to your leader and CHANGE YOUR ww goal to be a tad bit higher.. this will take the pressure off of you... and I would NOT skip a meeting when you are above the goal becuz that might be when you would benefit from the support the most? but, the whole concept of two pounds is craziness because our bodies normally fluctuate a couple to few pounds even in a days time!! so.... I think 5 pounds would be a better idea... anyhow... gooood luck... Do you do core? or points.?

Hi! I got my Weight Watchers lifetime thing in July this year and my "goal" on here is a bit lower than my WW goal (which I set at the upper limit of the allowed range). I also have that 5 lb "red light" signal.
Mostly, I go by the camber set for my cross country ski gear. I find "gear" is way more motivating for me than an arbitrary number set by "somebody". Anyhoo, if you're happy where you are (and your gear still works *LOL*) then you're doing great in my books!!

Congratulations!! I use a 5 pound window as well. My goal was 120 so I keep it between 117-122 though when I hit 121, I usually start to panic and watch my eating until it gets back below 120. :) Good luck!!
I think a lot of us have set up 5-pound maintenance ranges that we try to stay in. For example, my goal weight was 123lbs, so I now try to stay between 120-125lbs. There are SO many factors that can affect your day-to-day weight that 2lbs seems pretty strict.
Congrats on reaching maintenance!

Hi and welcome. Congratulations on your weight loss success. I have been maintaining since this past February. I try to stay with 5 lbs of my goal weight. I weigh myself once a week to stay on track and continue to log my food and exercise. I think 2 lbs is a little strict for a limit since our weight is affected by so many things like time of day, how much you have eaten or drank, etc. Don't let yourself feel bad about the number on the scale. Be proud of all you have accomplished.

Hi I am so happy to find you all. I did not weigh in this month at weight watchers because I am over th 2 pound limit. I am trying to stay within a 5 pound limit instead. I am 72 years old and it is hard to try to be so careful. I will continue though and hope I never forget how much I like new smaller clothes.....LOL
