Welcome! You have come to the right place. Maintenance is just as focused and diet for me. I try to focus on calling it lifestyle and using that in regards to maintenance. Good luck and congratulations on your success.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

Congratulations on hitting your goal! And welcome to the team and to SparkPeople.

You are right that Maintenance has it's own set of challenges, and we are here to work through those together.

It's too bad you lost a friend because of your success, but rest assured, most folks will just support and encourage you in your goals, so here's to the future and all the joys and challenges it will bring!

highest weight ever:202, SP starting weight: 143

New goal: 125 lbs, just to see what that looks and feels like! Hit it: Feb 2013!

H: 5''4" 49 y.o.

Hi Everyone,
I hit my weight loss goal this past January. I lost a total of 92 pounds and did it the old fashioned way with diet and exercise over a 3-4 year period.
I am in a maintenance nutrition class buy have found that most folks there aren't yet at their goal. I have discovered that there are quite a few unique challenges to reaching goal weight that no one addresses. Things such as negative responses from others, losing a friend who didn't accept my weight loss etc.
I hope I am in the right place as I am so excited to have found this in a web search. I'm hoping to quickly learn how to navigate this website and gain support!
